Welcome to the Trade Direct Insurance blog ‘Talking Trade’

Whatever your trade, from builders and carpenters, through electricians and plumbers, and even window cleaners. If you’re looking for hints, tips, news and lifestyle articles, you’re in the right place.

We’ve built our Talking Trade blog to bring you a wide range of topics. We’ll have articles to help you to grow your business, make more money, improve your golf swing and even pack the right lunch to get you through the day! Alongside news and views, we’ve developed a series of plain-talk guides. They’ll help you bust the jargon on subjects like marketing, managing finances and tax affairs. We’ve even thrown in a bunch of boring but useful guides about insurance.

We’ll also be including feature articles on subjects such as top ways to improve your work/life balance, how and when to get great deals on holidays and trade promotions from time to time.

As well as our own articles, we’ve partnered up with some fantastic names in and around the construction and tradesman industry. The likes of YourTradeBase will share their experience and knowledge, and we have a series of interviews with tradespeople looking at why they started trading, as well as providing tips to homeowners.

We welcome your feedback. As the Talking Trade blog develops over time, we’ll change it based on what people do and don’t like, and what is and isn’t useful.
