Painters can now develop their business even more with the new website.

Designed to generate online leads for painting work, the website has been custom built by painters for painters. Get-A-Painter, or GAP, captures online job leads and refers them to registered website members. By linking buyers of painting services such as homeowners and businesses with sellers or professional painters and applicators, the website helps generate work for members while meeting the needs of Do It For Me customers.

Get-A-Painter’s General Manager Chris Munday explains the benefits of GAP and how the website is meeting the needs of its members.

According to Mr Munday, GAP is very cost-effective in comparison with traditional advertising, since the online lead generating platform is free to join with no obligation or lock-in contract. GAP does, however, have membership standards to ensure delivery of high quality services and products to its customers. A screening process vets each member to ensure GAP’s levels of professional standards will be met.

GAP captures customer enquiry details such as lead location and nature of project (i.e. Small, Large or Commercial). This basic information is then sent out to registered GAP members who are accepting job leads in the nominated areas/ postcodes.

The first four members to accept the lead are given the job information along with all the customer contact details. GAP ensures it delivers a premium service with all members agreeing to respond to customers within two hours of accepting the given lead.

The online marketing profile and business information of the four painters is also emailed to the prospective client along with their contact details, enabling customers to review the background, services and skill set of respective GAP members.

For painting businesses, GAP is an effective way to gain new jobs without wasting money on marketing budgets and advertising that may not even guarantee a return. GAP’s revenue model is based on billing members for jobs they accept and quote on, delivering a far more efficient service than traditional advertising platforms. Members are charged on a points-based system depending on the size of the job and the nature of the lead. GAP understands the needs of local painters, ensuring members get to pick the location and timing of the lead.

Mr Munday adds that members will also receive rewards via their site sponsors including incentives such as bonus points and rebates.

Register as a new member with Get-A-Painter before the end of February and get 100 bonus points, equivalent to two free leads.
