Retirement Jobs

Home Handyman

Becoming a home handyman in retirement can be a rewarding retirement job.  You can provide a needed service and make money at the same time.  Not a bad combination.  People always need things fixed or remodeled.

When you become a home handyman, you are selling yourself and the service that you provide. 
You need to sell on a local level so you can drive to your customers quickly.  

The Internet is taking the place of the traditional Yellow Pages.  People are “letting their fingers do the walking.  However, the fingers are doing the walking on the computer keyboard.

You must sell yourself and convince others that you can fix what is broken or remodel a room for them.

With your own website you can tell potential customers about your experience and areas of expertise.  You can post pictures of your best projects to show the quality of work that you do.

You can ask your satisfied customers for testimonials about how you conduct your business and the quality of your work.  You can post these on your website.

Having a website tells the world that you are serious about your business.

You probably think, “I don’t know anything about building a website.” Well, it is not as hard to build as you think if you have the right tools. You know from your own business that the right tools make the job much easier.

 Site Build It provides the tools for you and you can build your own website. This website you are reading is a Site Build It website. Read on.

You need a website to sell the service that you as home handyman will provide.

Site Build It (SBI) takes care of many of the mundane, day to day requirements of maintaining a website and leaves you time for your handyman business.

SBI has two different pages you should read.  The first deals with creating a service sales website for your business.  The second page deals with creating a website for selling locally

For more information about Site Build It, watch SBI Television.

Your job is home handyman, not webmaster.  You should not become bogged down in the technical details of building and managing a website.

I recommend that you use Site Build It (SBI) for your website work. This will allow you to concentrate on your handyman business and let SBI do most of the work.

Do not think that all you do is push a button and your SBI site is on autopilot.

The initial set up will require some hard work, but from my personal experience, the SBI process will lead you through finding your niche market for your handyman business, naming your website, and building your site. It will then promote your site to the search engines. The search engines will send your customers to your website. Once the search engines have delivered the customer to you, it is up to you to close the deal.

Here is a free ebook about setting up a service sales business.  You can download it to your computer and read it at your leisure.  It contains very helpful information that will help you get started selling on the Internet.
