Natural Paving Products is delighted to announce its new homeowner rating system is now live and fully integrated into its 2016 Landscaping Professional Awards, which are now open for entries.
Updating the company’s membership scheme for professional landscapers, the Homeowner Rating System is an easy way to create an online portfolio of work and gain valuable customer reviews. Landscape professionals simply upload images and details of completed projects and Natural Paving Products will contact the owner to provide a review and star rating out of five.
Providing a valuable reference base, the Homeowner Rating System helps Landscape Professionals stand out from the competition and actually win new business. As a profile begins to receive reviews it will also build its own average star rating, as well as a library of reviews, ratings and images – akin to TripAdvisor.
Further supporting its Landscaping Scheme members, Natural Paving Products will highlight some of the best company profiles and projects across its social media channels. Additionally, the new platform gives potential customers a better insight into a Professional Landscaper prior to starting a project, which will help develop a better working relationship between the two parties.
What’s more, every project uploaded to the Homeowner Rating System will be automatically submitted into the company’s Landscaping Professional Awards. This dramatically simplifies the entry process and incentivizes firms to upload as many projects as possible. Not only will uploading more projects improve Landscapers’ profiles, it will also increase their chance of winning the cash prizes up for grabs.
Along with the Homeowner Rating System update, Natural Paving Products is simultaneously announcing that entries are now open for its 2016 Landscaping Professional Awards. The company’s awards are split across three categories: Best Patio, Best Driveway and Best Overall Design, with the winner and Runners Up each receiving a cash prize – closing date for entries is 31st January 2017.
Malcolm Gough, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Natural Paving Products, commented: “We’re delighted to launch our new Homeowner Rating System and to announce entries for our 2016 awards are now open. Each year we’re blown away by the quality of entries to our awards so we are very interested to see what gets submitted this time around. Likewise, it will be exciting to see the impact our Homeowner Rating System has for our scheme members. The system brings about real benefits for both landscape professionals and customers alike and so we are confident it will be well received. We believe it has the potential to become the go-to place for honest, trustworthy professional landscaper reviews.”
