“People come here for the content, but they stay for the community”
– Matt Jones – Director
The Site Shed is about helping tradespeople get access to information that can help them run a successful business. The vision started many years ago, as a way that the founder Matt Jones, could give back to the industry that had served him so well.
As a former tradesman, Matt knew the difficulties that he faced in relation to obtaining relevant information pertaining to the successful running of trade based business. More to the point, it was even harder to get access to networks and resources that could leverage and the experience and wisdom of those that have trodden the path before.
Matt dreamed of creating not just a platform where relevant education, resources, tools and information were made available, but also a community where business owners could come to network from around the world and share their story.
The Site Shed is tool, designed to fill the gap between what is learned in college and what is needed to run a successful business. It’s about delivering real life, practical information that can be implemented.
The Site Shed is for action takers. If that’s you, we look forward to seeing you on the inside!
Giving back has always been a priority for founder and entrepreneur Matt Jones. Originally a plumber, Matt entered the world of sales and marketing, before starting his own digital agency, Tradie Web Guys, a company that helps tradespeople enhance their online presence.
As rewarding as it has been running a business that makes a positive impact on people and their businesses, it was still not enough. Matt had a dream of reaching the masses and really leaving a legacy, which is where the vision of The Site Shed manifested.
The Site Shed WILL revolutionise the industry, right across the globe.
The Site Shed is a business podcast for trade based business owners, contractors and entrepreneurs.
Facilitated by Matt Jones, each episode is designed to inform, educate and entertain, bringing relevant content to the earbuds of those listening, so that you’re keep up to date with everything trade related.
Matt is often joined by co-hosts who specialise in tools, products, or services that add value to the industry, such as David Jenyns from Melbourne SEO Services, Clinton Cowin from Tradie Pad & many more, however you’ll also gain amazing insight from successful business owners and industry experts from right across the globe.
Put simply, a podcast is like ‘radio-on-demand’
It’s audio, made available to you at YOUR CONVENIENCE, not at the schedule of a stupid radio program.
Why is that cool?
Think of it like this.
If you’re a plumber, builder, electrician, etc and you spend (on average) two hours a day in your car. Perhaps that’s driving to and from the office, or perhaps that’s driving between jobs.
You work on a construction site and you normally have a radio playing
You work in an office and you sit in front of a computer all day!
The point is, we all have time during our day, that we could be taking better advantage of. So what are you doing about it? Why not turn that downtime or the time that you would normally spend listening to top-40 charts and talkback radio into productive time?
Effectively, turn your car into a university!
How does it work?
In the video’s below, I run through two examples of firstly, how you can make the most out of being part of our community and secondly, how you can make the most out of our amazing podcast.
How do I get it?
Who we are
We’re a bunch of business owners, tradespeople and specialists that want to make a global difference to the industry.
Many of us are from trade backgrounds ourselves, however ALL of us are sold out in one way, or another to helping trade based businesses improve. We’re all about adding as much value as we can, so we’ll see you on the inside!
The Site Shed is about creating a community, by where Trade Based Business owners from around the world can come to get access to resources, tools, education and training that can help them in their business.
It’s a place where you can join a community of like minded business owners and enthusiasts, enabling you to learn from those that have been there and done it before. It’s a tool where you can meet and collaborate with new people in similar industries, in different markets and help each other along.
