What is the installer map?
Our installer map is a great way to find recommended local installers for loads of different energy saving solutions. From boilers to heat pumps, loft insulation to energy surveys, we have it covered! Unlike other lead generation websites, the whole point of the GreenAge map is to ensure that the installer owns the end-to-end relationship with the customer.
Once you sign up, you will only pay a set amount once a month, regardless of how many leads you get.
All potential customers need to do is enter their postcode to find recommended installers near them.
Why is there a need for the installer map?
The GreenAge was set up in 2011 to provide energy saving advice to households and businesses, and over the past 4 years, the GreenAge has become the second largest energy saving/ renewables advice portal in the UK (after the Energy Saving Trust) with a monthly reach of over 275,000+ visitors (data point: 28/11/2016). To date, we have been featured on numerous media outlets, for example: BBC, Sky News and in many major publications including The Times and The Daily Mail, check out our media page here.
One of the challenges we have faced is trying to connect all these potential customers with decent installers. Due to the volume of enquiries we get (3million page views per year), it has always been difficult to ensure we help everyone. Therefore there is a need for the ‘Find a local installer’ platform!
The fee vs. amount of interest to your business?
We charge a small fixed monthly fee for installers, ensuring that no matter how small an installer you are, you can access our directory – just one converted lead in a 12 month period will cover the subscription fee (prices start from as little as £3.99 per month). We do not guarantee minimum leads per month, but we expect with the level of traffic we get through the site will be of benefit to all the potential installers who want to be a part of it. The admin fee to be on the map is considerably less than some of the other online providers of ‘rating the trader’, and therefore justifiable for the potential benefits that you will get.
In addition, to have a strong presence of being on the map, the GreenAge is always looking to strike other partnerships, such as with manfucturers, so no matter what the size of your business we can bring more benefits to help you.
Who can subscribe to the map?
If you are an installer of energy efficient technologies, (for example energy efficient boilers, loft insulation, cavity wall insulation) or you install renewables, then being part of TheGreenAge Community via the Installer Map is the perfect way to connect with the public.
If you are qualified in the trade and can prove competence, then you can sign up and be part of the listings.
What do you need to register as an installer?
It is pretty important that the person you get to do a job in your home knows exactly what they are doing! Before being placed on the map, all our installers are subject to the following:
- Installers must hold relevant accreditations and qualifications
To ensure that all our installers are experts, we always check that their accreditations are current. For example, all plumbers must be Gas Safe and all our registered electricians are accredited under the UK national standard, BS 7671 (Requirements for all Electrical Installations).
- All installers are interviewed
We speak to all future installers to check we are only recommending friendly, helpful people.
- Installers must come with references
Our installers must come recommended by previous customers – we check references before enrolling them on our local installer map.
- We continually monitor our installers
We regularly ask for feedback from customers to make sure installers are delivering.
- Installers must hold valid ID
We require recent ID to reassure customers.
- All installers must have insurance
We also ensure that all installers have valid public liability insurance.
