Why Join My Local Pros
My Local Pros is a respected group of independent contractors based out of Southeast Michigan. As a group that has been vetted and held to a high standard of doing business, the leaders of these businesses get together to collaborate on projects, share referrals, and continuously educate themselves with new ways to make their customers happy.
Here are a few ways your business will benefit from joining My Local Pros.
The My Local Pros Status
As a My Local Pro, you’ll have the opportunity to utilize the My Local Pro badge on your website. This is a status symbol that showcases your business’s reputation and service. Not every business that applies gets approved as a My Local Pro – only the best of the best.
Mastermind Roundtable Discussions
As a local business, there’s always something new to learn, new challenges to tackle, and better ways to do things. To ensure that the My Local Pros continue to grow, learn, and adapt, we meet as a group over breakfast every other week in person to share best practices, ask each other questions, and dig deep into a hot topic. This meeting lasts only 90 minutes, so it’s a very low time commitment on your part.
As a My Local Pro, you’ll have a listing page on the website, where you can showcase your services, reviews, certifications, and multimedia marketing material. My Local Pros will promote your services throughout the website, on their social media channels, and through paid advertising. The cost of advertising is included in your monthly membership!
One of the best forms of lead generation is through referrals. Expand your audience and opportunities by joining the My Local Pros referral network. Our model is that as you send referrals to others, they will in return refer your business. This works well for our group because our businesses complement each other. When one business has a customer with a large project, it’s likely they will also need a contractor to finish the job. It’s a win-win for everyone!
