Find a Builder 2010

Executive Director Brandon Abdinor recently communicated key objectives the Association aims to achieve in 2010, one of which is the much anticipated Find-a-Builder module.

The programming aspect is now complete an we are all systems go to hit the tar running.

A Quick Recap:

Every single one of our members, via a feed from our database, is listed on Find-a-Builder, a module that sits on the Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal website. At this stage it’s only a name and telephone number found under the relevant category (e.g. Roofing). The module was however designed to accommodate a second layer of information, which is the phase we are about to embark upon.

We will now begin the immense task of visiting each and every contractor on our membership role in order to gather information needed to populate what is essentially their company profile page. As Zululand Refrigeration were used as a test case, they are the first to have gone live with it.

How it works:
  • Go to
  • Select Internal Works
  • Select Air Conditioning
  • Select Zululand (search)
  • Click on Zululand Refrigeration (To view end page CLICK HERE)
Driving Traffic:

One of several 2010 initiatives intended to drive traffic to the site is already underway. The URL features on the cover of the North Coast, South Coast and Midlands editions of the 2010 Yellow Pages, resulting in high quality exposure for what is a nominal membership fee, of just R150, 00 per month. ……if you are not a member JOIN NOW .
