Electricians Advantages for Being with Electricians Forums

There are many advantages electricians can find when being part of the forum and community. It\'s not just all about the electrical advice. Oh no. It\'s much more than that.

Business Growth

Learn tips and tricks as a new electrical business, or even as an established one. Whether website and SEO advice, social media advice, or offline marketing (some still does exist). And much more.

Electricians and Mate Jobs

Whether you're an electrician, or an electricians mate, there is quite a lot of work posted to the forum these days. We have some established electricians agencies that partner with us.

Unlock Avenues and Build Bridges

We have suppliers, training centres, electrical wholesalers, direct manufacturers who sell to the trade, all right on the forum. As well as our fellow members who have their current relationships to share.

Work out Your Next Steps

You're fine staying as you are if all is going well with your business. But it might be worth always having your next steps near you should a current contract suddenly end or something during this crazy pandemic we're all facing.

Chat with a Coffee Every Morning

Every morning we have a thread where people can come say hi, chat about what they have on this day/week, and share their problems and successes with each other.

Retired Electricians Wanted

Some of our best members are the electricians who are near the end of their business working life. But want to still keep a hand in the industry. We have some great guys and gals on the forum who fit into this area and really help out on the forum.

UK Tiling Forum

UK Tiling Forum

There’s a UK Tiling Forum knocking about that has a bit of competition from Tilers Forums.

Pre-2006 there was only a couple of tiling advice forums online, and one was TileForums.com, owned by a training centre called Professional Independent Training Techniques who ran tiling courses and sold tiling tools.

The other one was John Bridge’s Ceramic Tile Advice Board, based in Canada but covering the USA too. Their tilers are called ’tile setters’. And their tile adhesive is called ‘mud’. Other than that, it’s pretty much all the same stuff.

Schluter are out there, Kerdi are out there. Some tool names are out there too. So it’s sort of okay. But there needed to be a good UK one that wasn’t biased towards any one training centre or brand name. BAL adhesives tried to setup one and it failed miserably.

UK Tiling Forum for All Types of Wall and Floor Tilers

No matter what your skill level, there’s a UK Tiling Forum out there for you. You can try them all but you’ll only find one reliable enough to stay with. TilersForums.com.

Starting out in 2006, Tilers Forums quickly became the focus point for the UK Tile Industry.

Tiling Advice was sought by many types of wall and floor tilers, tile shop owners, adhesive representatives, underfloor heating installers etc etc.

UK Tiling Forum TilersForums.com
TilersForums.com’s What’s New Page Active as Always

TilersForums.co.uk was the forum online after TileForums.com.

Owned by myself, Dan, again. This time I had a chance to create a forum that was not connected to any training centre, not connected to any brand, and people could speak freely about anything they wanted to.

Some problems with this:-

  • Companies selling tiling tools would provide them for free to members who would then leave reviews on them – problem is they wanted more free ones so the reviews were always awesome ones. But fake. Not real world reviews from somebody who has paid for the tool.
  • Companies selling adhesives would sign up and pretend to be a tiler, leave replies to threads recommended the brand they worked for, and rendering all of their posts biased.
  • Moderators would eventually assume that rather than doing the volunteering to give back to the website and community which was the reason they always wanted the role, they then had some sort of ‘power’ that nobody had given them, and expected special treatment from everybody at all levels.
  • Cliques would appear. Tags would be wanted by “mates” so “mates” would vote on who got the new tags. If a very good tiler had fallen out with one of the regular forum members, they would never get the tag or be part of the clique.
  • The forum grew so popular and big that it required special hosting on dedicated servers using speciality services such as those offered by huge protection companies that banks use, such as CloudFlare.com, to root out bad traffic – this is where costs start to mount up.

Awesome Feedback for Electrical2Go – Forum Sponsors of Electricians Forums – The World’s Largest Electrical Advice Website

Electrical2Go have 2,509 reviews with an average of 4.6/5. That’s an awesome but honest review count.

They are sponsors of Electricians Forums. Which is a privately owned business that requires sponsorship revenue to stay online for free for its 50,000 electricians. Without sponsors, our forum would either have to have a shop, so it would render the advice biased therefore not be a honest forum, or we would need to charge members to register – and that doesn’t work.

We thank Electrical2Go and all of our other sponsors for supporting us.

But we really need our members to support our sponsors too! So please please always buy from one off our sponsors if they sell something you require yourself or for a customer.

Tiling Advice and Tiling Project Management

Tiling Advice and Tiling Project Management with a Personal Approach

When you’re looking online for Tiling Advice you get a minefield of information, usually online shops with blogs that just want to tell you about ‘The Top 5 Bathroom Tiles This Season’ and the likes. Then there are the forums, the blogs, the training courses, the associations for tiles (what?!) and bathrooms (what whaaaat?).

Usually they have a slant. For our forums, it’s been very hard to manage the pro-sponsor but fair-actual-tradesperson-recommendations which can be company reps disguising themselves as traders themselves though never having touched a tool or not wore a tie.

I think we’ve managed that, well, unlike forums owned by somebody with a financial interest in the industry, such as ones owned by training schools and private colleges, or ones owned by actual suppliers – ours has stayed online for around 15 years now.

It’s still hard though to find what advice online to trust.

So TilingAdviceLive.co.uk have come up with something. You get a bespoke FREE OF CHARGE service where they will help you plan your tiling project from start to finish. Or do as little as you need them to do if you’ve already got some ideas and contacts and even tiles and adhesives.

They use their awesome contacts from the tile industry that they’ve gained over the years. All the people working on the project are doing it for free for now. With a hope that one day there would perhaps be some profit in the agent type setup and share discounts on tiling tools, tile adhesives, tiles etc from their contacts, with the customer/homeowner/project manager/quantity surveyor/architect/specifier – Did I mention it’s a free service?

Checkout their website if you’re looking for tile project advice service, but with an awesome difference and a personal taste to your project.

ElectriciansForums.co.uk Updated October 2020

I’ve updated the .co.uk domain to include its own blog, tell us what you think about it.

Nothing too fancy. It’s using a free template via WordPress. It has its own stats now and some handy basic blog posts so far but I have plans for it to be much much more than what it is right now.

Some other website we’re working on will be announced and launched soon too. I think those will come in handy.

ElectriciansForums.co.uk was the domain we used from 2006 to 2019. So it’s important to me. I couldn’t just not use it. So here it is. Have a click around, make sure you visit the fancy homepage. I don’t think it looks too bad myself. 🙂

Talk Electrician Forum

Talk Electrician Forum is one of three forums we have. We started in 2006 on ElectriciansForums.co.uk and soon after another forum popped up ripping off our domain, theirs was ElectricianForum.co.uk, which they then changed to Talk.ElectricianForum.co.uk and called it TEF to dodge takedown notices from us.

It’s still far too close of a domain name for my liking so we will get round to issuing complaints to Nominet and get our case in front of a panel who if they see our side, should hand over their domain name.

The best thing they could do to save their content is shift their domain using 301 redirect, as we have done to our .net, and all went fine we didn’t lose any search traffic or SERPs.

Food for thought guys.

Talk Electrician Forum https://talk.electricianforum.co.uk

I’ve bought TalkElectricianForum.co.uk and will rank this above there one in time. Might even make it an active actual forum because their Invision Power Board is terrible forum software and the SEO sucks with it. We’ll nail it with either WordPress or XenForo.com

I’ve worked on forums for years, my first was KeepCruizin.com (the website) and KeepCruizin.net (the forum, back then using Invision Power Board) and had around 6,000 “Cruizers” (god that’s cringeworthy now). And that was in around 1997! Christ, showing my age now.

Always had at least 3 busy forums online. Either construction or automotive industry, so some VW forums and VW Amarok International forum – closed those down a few years ago when I sold my Amarok and didn’t have the time to keep posting about meets I wasn’t going to etc.

So our electrical forum that got ripped off really did my head in.

I would offer my services for free to the owners of TEF. Get your forum transferred to a .com perhaps, could get your Google ads you got banned from using then for cheating them. You’d actually earn more money, have more members, and wouldn’t be pissing me off by using a domain so close to mine. I can’t change mine because I have several other matching forum domains.

So you’ve got to else I’m going to have to spend a lot of time and effort screwing with your site SERPs and even considered DDOSing it to death every week as I’m not sure you’d be able to afford to pay for the kind of hosting you’d need to keep it online then that’s for sure.

So perhaps working with me to change your name would be wise sometime during 2021.

https://talkelectricianforum.co.uk – Our bomb site.

Please please get in touch so we can work this out the nice way where we both win. Else I’m going to have to spend a lot of time and money knocking your site offline, google bombing it, and then arguing my case with nominet, and if you don’t turn up to fight your corner you’ll lose your domain. So that’s a lot of time and effort and money for you too by not changing your domain. But more money and Google Adsense back if you work with me.

Contact me if you’re interested. 🙂
