2. The Competition in the Market Place
None of our competitors are pursuing a similar breadth of vision to us by taking advantage of the importance of smartphones to tradesmen and customers. Many competitors have little vetting in place, bringing negative feedback towards the industry.

Founders Andy Morrison of Handyman.co.uk and David Murphy of TextaTradesman.ie have set out to rectify the bad reputation the trade has online due to ‘rogue traders’. Together, they are amalgamating a network of 45,000 top class builders, specific tradesmen and handymen in one place with a simple way for customers to reach them directly via any one of their 25 niche smartphone websites that enable the customer’s search to be defined and targeted to individual tradesmen.
As an early internet pioneer and one of the first tradesmen to use a mobile to gain business, Andy Morrison foresaw the impact the internet would have in winning business. As far back as 1996, when the internet was still in its infancy, Andy saw the potential to buy relevant construction names for future use with search engines such as Handyman.co.uk, GeneralBuilders.co.uk, SmallBuilders.co.uk, DerelictProperty.co.uk, EndofTenancy.co.uk Scaffolders.co.uk and many more, whilst his competitors looked – and still look – on.
In 2014, Andy and David discovered the phrase “text” is used by 60% of the population as part of daily life, and Google stats reveal that consumers search for individual trades on search engines by the areas tradesmen specialise in – for example, “bricklayer”, “plasterer” and “builder”. Based on these findings, they chose to bring the word ‘Texta’ into a search term to find tradesmen on the internet, e.g. TextaPlumber.co.uk, TextaPlasterer.co.uk, TextaTiler.co.uk. “Texta” is memorable, “Plumber” is memorable, so “TextaPlumber.co.uk” is surely unforgettable, and the concept was born.
