BMA Media teams up with the United Association to build a website that provides industry education and encourage the use of UA contractors.

When the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry decided they needed to overhaul the website used to promote its residential plumbing services, they contacted LaborTools powered by BMA Media Group to get the job done.

In coordination with the United Association and their Plumbing Department, BMA Media Group evaluated the original Plumbers 911 site and then redesigned it to be a more effective tool. The updates were made while still adhering to the UA’s vision to promote plumbing services to residential customers while still allowing each participating Local Union to decide on the budget and how best to market the referral service for its participating contractors.

BMA Brands Plumbers 911Some of the components implemented in the website redesign included:

  • Branded logo
  • Color scheme
  • Style guide
  • Site map
  • New content
  • New images
  • Device responsiveness
  • Improved calls-to-action
  • Tagging and tracking systems for analytics
  • Search engine optimization

After the new Plumbers 911 site launched, visitors found content that is more inviting, with clear direction on how best to interact and quickly find what they need. The new site also provides visitors with helpful tips regarding plumbing or renovations work in their homes.

Providing additional support

The Plumbers 911 website is now easier to use and mobile responsive, while promoting the use of UA signatory contractors. To check out the completed version of Plumbers 911, visit the new website.
