About Contractor Guides
Contractor Guides is the fastest growing site in the UK’s massive contracting and freelancing market and has quickly established itself as a trusted and respected resource for experienced contractors as well as for those people thinking of contracting for the first time. Indeed for those who are new to the world of contracting the site offers more than just the latest industry news and articles, instead providing them with a unique insight into what it takes to be a contractor or temporary worker and highlighting how rewarding and enriching (and how challenging) the contracting working style can be for both individuals and companies. For the experienced contractor the site offers a wealth of information, exploring anything or any product (such as contractor mortgages or contractor pensions) that might make their day-to-day contracting experience a better one.
It is this blend of content – for both experienced and new contractors – that has led to the site shooting up the search engine rankings and becoming the fastest growing contractor site in the UK. It’s also how we have grown a large, focused and loyal audience of UK contractors and temporary workers. Through a combination of in-depth written and video content we look at the major issues of contracting and help our readers maximise their time in the industry.
This in-depth approach to content gives our readers the answers to any question they might have about contracting (and contracting related products) whilst giving our partners and advertisers a targeted and highly engaged platform from which they can speak to their audience.

Here at Contractor Guides we offer our partners a number of different options over and above the regular banner ad, so that we can match their brand to the right audience and offer them the perfect solution for both their budget and their marketing targets:
Our Advertising Platforms
We provide our readers with a trusted resource that details everything and everyone that is important in the world of contracting.
An essential part of that is our company listings section which profiles all of the movers and shakers in the contracting industry as well as those businesses that provide essential services to contractors and freelance workers.
Companies listed on these pages can add as much text as they like, from full contact details to product information as well as positive reviews, images and videos. There is also crucially a lead generation form on the same page.
These pages always rank on the front page of Google for brand related terms and offer an easy and low cost marketing solution.
We are proud to say that in a short space of time we have gained the trust of over 7000 contractors who have given us their emails addresses and expressed a desire for us to contact them with relevant content. We can offer a variety of email packages for advertisers who want to take advantage of this effective marketing model.
In less than a year we have generated over 200,000 views and gained more than 1000 subscribers on our YouTube channel.
Additionally we have developed our own video platform within the site which uses hot-spotting technology for ‘call to action’ prompts within our videos. To date we have had over 50,000 views on this platform and the click through rate is outstanding. This is another great advertising option that connects advertisers with a highly engaged audience.
Blog & Press Release Syndication
While Contractor Guides is our flagship site, we understand that every story needs a helping hand to get in front of the right people. So we have created a targeted network of high PR and Authority sites to give all our pages and all out partners’ pages the best chances of success. If you have a story or page which needs a push in search engines, then this is the package for you.
We offer various combinations of the above packages and are open to any ideas you might have. Why not give us a call or drop us an email and we can discuss a package that is tailor-made for you and your company.
