Dedicated Account Managers Set CraftJack Apart
We know how many lead generation companies are out there and as such, CraftJack is constantly looking for ways to improve and differentiate our service from the pack. Nonetheless, one of our biggest differentiators is a perk that we have offered since we started: dedicated account managers.
Unlike many other lead generation companies, CraftJack assigns each and every contractor a dedicated account manager.

While I can not speak for other lead generation companies, CraftJack opens your doors to lead discounts, no matter the types of leads you are receiving.CONTINUE READING
