PREMIER KITCHEN WEBSITE OFFERS FREE LISTING AND LEADS
Bedroom and bathroom sites to be previewed at KBB2002
The company behind some of the UK's most successful home improvement websites is inviting kitchen suppliers to take advantage of a great double offer.
eBuilders, whose Kitchen-Buyers-Guide.com website has had over 30,000 visitors since it was launched in September, offers not only a free listing in its suppliers' directory but also an opportunity to receive ten free leads. These come through the contractor matching service, a popular feature of the website, in which potential customers are invited to contact up to four suppliers for brochures and quotations. And although there is no obligation to continue after the free trial, further leads can be purchased at very attractive rates, depending on volume.
eBuilders, which will be exhibiting at KBB2002 in Hall 19, Stand K46, is also previewing its bathroom and bedroom sites at the exhibition.
"Like our conservatory site, www.conservatoriesonline.com, our kitchen site has quickly become the premier online resource for consumers," said eBuilders' site content manager Aafke Krol. "Suppliers who link up with us will not only help us give browsers the best possible service but also do themselves a favour at the same time."

Millions of pounds' worth of business generated from eBuilders' sites
Home improvement companies with a presence on the innovative eBuilders group of websites have notched up over 16,000 enquiries over the past year, leading to business worth millions of pounds.
Conservatory websites, including the groundbreaking www.conservatoriesonline.com, have generated nearly 12,000 enquiries. Windows sites, including www.windowstoday.co.uk, have clocked up nearly 4,000 enquiries, while the www.almostimpartialguide.co.uk kitchen buyer's guide, launched in September 2001, is on course for 2000 enquiries by the end of the year.
The phenomenal success of the eBuilders websites is due not only to their user-friendly construction and informative content but equally to the high positions they constantly occupy in the major search engines.
"It's fair to say that companies featured on our websites are finding it a highly effective way of not only publicising their products and services but also pulling in the business," said eBuilders managing director Barry Dunlop.

"More and more people are attracted to the idea of an enclosed pool and it's a viable idea for many homeowners," said Barry Dunlop, managing director of eBuilders which launched the website. "However, there are plenty of pitfalls and many things to take into consideration when choosing an enclsoure. Our swimming pool section aims to offer impartial advice that enables prospective purchasers to do their homework before taking the plunge."

WEB MARKETING BOOM FOR CONSERVATORY FIRMS
Record internet usage reported by key directory sites
Sales leads are soaring for conservatory companies promoting themselves through specialist internet directories. As more customers use the net for making buying decisions, the industry's premier web marketing facility reports record online activity.
The dominant position of conservatoriesonline.com as the most popular online route to a conservatory supplier is bringing record lead generation for the companies registered with its directories.
The site and its associated buyer's guide almostimpartialguide.co.uk consistently appear in the top positions of the major Internet search engines in response to searches for "conservatories". It currently holds 'top ten' positions in all 14 leading world-wide search engines.
Barry Dunlop, managing director of eBuilders, the company behind conservatoriesonline.com and its sister sites, said: "Maintaining such a strong position in the search engines is obviously important to our task of attracting potential buyers to the suppliers listed in our directories."
"It's working extremely well, with large numbers of good quality sales leads being generated every week. It means that a listing on our directories is by far the most powerful method of internet marketing, and it also reflects huge growth in the use of the internet for buying conservatories and related products."
conservatoriesonline.com, launched just six months ago, is attracting up to 600 visitors a day. The average visitor stays for just under 10 minutes, although one clocked up an impressive three hours. Mr Dunlop said: "It's proving a major business generator for suppliers, and we are still seeking reputable companies in some areas to ensure comprehensive coverage for customers."
A trade listing on almostimpartialguide.co.uk is free, and on conservatoriesonline.com costs £49 a year plus VAT.
This month (September) eBuilders launches a sister site windowstoday.co.uk, which is predicted to do for the replacement window industry what the original site has done for the conservatory industry - produce a retail revolution.

CONSERVATORIES SNAPPED UP VIA THE WEB
Internet buying soars through innovative website
As gardening and home improvements reach record levels of popularity, a web site making it easy to buy conservatories is becoming a major e-commerce success and setting a new trend in internet shopping.
Conservatories Online, at www.conservatoriesonline.com, was created by UK-based eBuilders to make life easier for people to shop around in the highly competitive conservatory market. The website provides comprehensive information about conservatory designs, regulations and local suppliers, and will automatically obtain three local competitive quotes for potential buyers.
Conservatory companies, quick to see its huge potential for boosting sales, have joined the site to make it a huge resource of contacts and information throughout the UK and USA.
UK residents from Scotland to the West Country have used the website to buy their conservatories, and in the US a major conservatory retailer won business worth almost $100,000 through the website in the first two months.
Barry Dunlop, managing director of eBuilders, said: "The success of the website confirms that this is a great way to choose and buy conservatories. The site provides an excellent service for potential buyers - supplying local competitive quotes which the customer can consider in comfort and without any pressure."
Conservatoriesonline includes an extensive picture gallery of conservatory designs and a huge amount of independent information about conservatories and sunrooms, enabling people to get expert guidance and ideas with maximum convenience.
The website includes a comprehensive 'buyer's guide' and an easy-to-use quotation form as well as advice on how to rate suppliers. There is even a facility to send questions to a team of independent experts.
"When we launched the site some people doubted whether there would be much interest," said Mr Dunlop. "They said conservatories just weren't the sort of product people would want to buy through the Internet."
"But this is really just a highly convenient information source and a great way of obtaining competitive quotes from local suppliers."
"It's a great combination of the new and the traditional - using the power of internet technology to help the buyer choose, but keeping the personal relationship and individual customer service once the selection is made."
The site is at http://www.conservatoriesonline.com. More details are available from Barry Dunlop on 01903 856679 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

|If you can't be good - be excellent!
Top tip: Take a lesson from the real world, if you set up a store and spend everything on fixed assets and nothing on advertising, would you expect such a business to succeed? Of course not. So why do so many people pour all their cash into their web site and leave nothing over to promote it, when it should be the other way around.
