What A Lead Is & What It Is Not

A lead can take on many different meanings, largely depending on what industry you’re in. Below, we will cover what an online lead is and what it is not in relation to the home remodeling industry.

Looking for more leads? Call us today at 866-456-6977 to get more reliable leads from real homeowners interested in completing work.

A lead is an individual that expresses interest in a specific service. In this sense, a lead is the initiation of homeowner interest or an inquiry into your services through digital channels. Compare the experience to someone who’s shopping around in your store, collecting information and gauging prices. They’re curious, open to buying and can be convinced or sold to if the interaction goes well. Of course, there’ll be times when a homeowner is ready to complete a project or has an urgent matter, but even so, that doesn’t mean they just want to throw their money at anyone.

Patience Is Key With Lead Generation: Here’s Why

Lead generation is a marathon, not a sprint. It’s not something you can throw $100 at and expect an immediate return of $1,000. While more and more homeowners are remodeling their homes, more and more contractors are entering the arena as well. Therefore, you may not close every single lead you receive from a lead generation service. However, when you take a step back and analyze groups of leads vs. individual referrals, you can see why patience pays off with lead generation.

Ready to receive leads this week? Give us a call at 866-456-6977 to sign up with CraftJack today. Starting July 1, CraftJack will be offering five free leads for pros who prepay $500 (all of which go towards your referrals).
