Nook Web Introduces Skilled Trades Specialized Internet Marketing
Bridging The Technology Gap
- December 17, 2007 – NOOK Web, a website design, development and Internet marketing firm based in Chicago, Illinois and serving clients nationwide, introduces specialized turn-key services for the skilled trades industry. The company’s unique strategies bridge the gap between skilled trades professionals who rarely need or use the Internet and their diverse customer base encompassing business professionals, home owners and individuals who use the Internet as their principal means for finding service professionals.
Experts foresee a 50 percent drop in Yellow Pages use during the next five years. In addition, Business Week reports that 70 percent of homeowners use the Internet to make their purchase decisions.
As a result, traditional print advertising media is no longer the most effective way to generate new business. “We’ve developed an intelligent, cost-efficient strategy that lets skilled trades professionals, whether a sole proprietor electrician, plumber, painter, HVAC contractor or major custom home construction businesses, reallocate marketing dollars into carefully targeted, local online advertising” states Martin Thomas, Founder of Nook Web.
Martin Thomas, founder of NOOK Web, grew-up immersed in the general contracting industry, helping his father in the suburbs of Chicago for more than 20 years. After earning his degree in Multimedia from Bradley University, he used his existing professional network to develop and fine-tune a highly sought-after and focused Internet Marketing technique. Since that time, Thomas has expanded his audience nationally, assisting skilled trades clients from California to the Carolinas.
