OK, You’re Asking . . . So We’ll Deliver!

We get the request once in a while:  “How Can I Get Free Trailer Plans?

I agree, that does sound pretty good.  And, for that matter, how about Free Gantry Crane Plans, Free Shop Press Plans and Free Any-Of-The-Plans-We-Have!  OK, we can do that, so let’s make a deal.

Trailer Blueprints Page Example For Free Trailer Plans‘Free’ can mean a lot of things, yet in this case, ‘Free Plans’ means without money.  We have something else in mind —
You help us and We’ll help you.

For truly free trailer plans, there are sites that give plans free, but you get what you pay for.  Trust us, we’ve looked.  The plans they give and the trailers they describe are simplistic at best.  I personally wouldn’t waste the steel building one — but that’s just me.  If I spend money and time on a project, then it’s worth having.

Our plans are different.  Plans from Mechanical Elements are engineered Do-It-Yourself Plans from Synthesis, a Colorado based Engineering & Design Services company.   The plans we offer here are way better, by design, for awesome products.

There is a lot of work that goes into these plans.  Many hours of design work and analysis to make sure they are the best for you, our customer.  We spend a lot of time writing notes on the drawings, specifying the Bill of Materials, and in writing and illustrating the instructions.  The cost of custom plans is $1ooo to $3000 or more, so prices on our site are a true bargain.

So, you want free trailer plans?  OK, plans for free — as in without financial cost.  How?  It’s simple, You help us and We’ll help you.

One of Google’s ranking factors is something they call backlinks.  Basically, Google wants to see that other sites link to Mechanical Elements as a way of judging whether we provide good reasons for people to visit.

Our business is a little different than many on the web because most people only want to build one trailer for example.  They search us out, buy the trailer plans, then go build it.  Many customers come back for building tips, but not typically to buy plans again until after they build the first project.  Also, most people that build an awesome trailer don’t have much need to build another one right away.  We think that’s great, because it means they’re satisfied.

Unfortunately, that does not satisfy Google.  It doesn’t quite fit their robot paradigm.  They seem to think if people don’t buy more often, then perhaps they don’t really like the website.

That said, the way you can help us is to post a link to us from your website.  If you have a website or a blog that deals with DIY stuff, or building stuff, or maker type topics, or trailers, or tools, or anything like that, then I’m willing to trade a link and a good word for a set of plans.  You choose what page on MechanicalElements.com you want to link to, then you choose what you want to say.  Post it, then send us a note and let us know what set of plans you want.  Plans for Free.  That’s pretty easy.

Just so it’s clear, trading links for plans is a form of paid advertising, but payment to you is a set of plans rather than money.  Please only say things with the link that are true, and what you believe.  Also, you should mention somewhere that you are compensated for the link.  We believe it’s important to be open, honest and transparent.

Once we approve the new link, we’ll send you a coupon code so you can select the plans free.
