What is the Santa Cruz Construction Guild?

The Santa Cruz Construction Guild is a group of local contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and construction professionals working in the Santa Cruz community. Our members are committed to providing quality and value to the local community. Many of us have built up our business from the referrals of happy customers.

This is why we build our membership in the same way, by referral. Referrals are the best way to keep up the quality of our members,  to build and maintain our good reputation.

The Santa Cruz Construction Guild website is a directory of our members. Each member gets their own member page, with their information and logo, specialties, contact details, contact form, a photo gallery, and customer testimonials. Your member page is like a mini-website. Some of our members have no other website, and no need for one. They get enough business through the guild.

And the best part?

We build it all for you. Yep, that’s right. You don’t have to find and hire a web designer to build a web presence for you (which can easily run upwards of $1200). You don’t have to worry about finding a reliable web host, which is harder than it sounds (good web hosting can cost $10-15 a month or more). You don’t need to hire an SEO expert to put you in the search engine results so that your potential clients can actually find you (since SEO is such a buzzword these days lots of people are jumping on the bandwagon and promoting themselves as experts when they are not, and the bad ones can actually do so much damage that they ruin your reputation and get you buried so that you are guaranteed to not be found in the search engines). And we don’t just create your member page then sit around twiddling our thumbs. We are constantly making improvements, working on our SEO (search engine optimization) and bringing you other benefits of membership in the Santa Cruz Construction Guild.

Membership in the guild also gives you access the mobile phone app we have created just for members. There are even more benefits and features in the app. But that’s a whole other story that you’ll learn about once you join.

So, if you can see the value in what we are doing, find an existing guild member to refer you and join now by clicking the button below. The doors are open now, we are taking in new members. Once they close we aren’t sure when they will open again. Most likely the the price will be more. So lock in your first year’s membership at the original low price of $180/yr.

Testimonials from Our Members

Annette Whelan Land Use Consultant“I love the Guild.  I get referrals from over the hill that I would never get locally.  Now I have an extensive client list from Apple and other dot.com companies that I would never have gotten without the internet connection. Currently I’m on a project with several guild members and always feel free to send clients to the web-site.”
