Establishing a branded identity is crucial for your growing contracting business!

Custom Domain Name

Brand your company’s online presence with a custom domain name that will be used for your website and email. Imagine the professionalism and legitimacy that comes with a domain ending in “yourcompanyname.com”!

personalized website

Personalized Website

Boost your online visibility with a personalized website boasting your name and logo.  Your site will be a one-stop shop for prospective and current clients to learn more about your company, the services you provide, and the “social proof” provided by past clients and past projects.  This is an essential step to ensure that your contracting company is visible in the results of the online searches done by future clients looking for your services.

We’ll set up a Google+ page so your contracting company can network easily and make meaningful connections.  Stay up to date on the latest industry news and network within your market to grow your business’s online social circle.

business email

Business Email

A great company email address is both professional and memorable.  Clients are more likely to pass your information along if it’s easy to remember and relevant.  Apparatus will set your company up with a branded email specific only to you and your team so that you can promote your company name in your market.

Growth Strategy

Embarking on a sustainable growth strategy needs great tools and execution, but it also needs an overall framework and roadmap.   Apparatus can provide you the tools and execution support to achieve your growth goals, but some of our clients need help with the development of a plan for which services, clients, and markets to pursue.   If you need that help, we’ll work with you to find a trusted advisor who can help you chart your path forward while we help you with the journey.
