Buying leads is a well-established form of marketing that is a necessity for many small businesses to increase sales and bring in new customers. Marketing is crucial to winning projects, but unfortunately, it doesn’t come without a cost. In order to accurately analyze your data, you should consider the second life that your leads have.
To ensure you are effectively spending your marketing budget, it’s important to periodically examine how much you spend per job earned. Looking at the cost per job is more beneficial than cost per lead because it allows you to compare the money you spend to the money that is coming in. Remember, a lead doesn’t necessarily mean a customer. And on the flip side, one lead could land you multiple jobs.CONTINUE READING

Here are four ways contractors can improve their follow-up process to schedule more estimates and close more leads:
1. Call your leads faster. One of the main reasons home improvement contractors lose leads is that they are too slow to make the first call. When a homeowner is looking to start a home improvement project, they typically reach out to many contractors for answers to their questions and estimates.CONTINUE READING
