I quickly looked over your site and it appears you attempt to provide the leads to contractors without providing a website that is capable of generating leads on its own. And for that they pay a monthly fee and then they pay for the leads.

/yawn.

I'd pretty much say that its actually to the contrary. We definitely provide a website that allows you to have an expanded web presence that allows you to much more easily be found online.

Word of mouth, but that requires a couple of years of building up.

Re: What Do You Guys Use To Get Leads?


The thing about online marketing is that (as with most things in life) you get out what you put in. Simply throwing up a website that looks like crap is worse than having no website at all.

Many choose to have no website, which is fine. However, I'd say you're shooting yourself in the foot by refusing to embrace modern technology. It's not so much about you....it's about your competition.

There are many, many ways to generate business. SEO and PPC are two of the most expensive ways to promote your business, but can also be the most rewarding.

Alternatives include content marketing, flyers (wouldn't recommend), door knocking, networking, and hiring telemarketers--the last of which still offers one of the best ROI's even in 2014.

Re: What Do You Guys Use To Get Leads?


exclusive leads are hard to come by, I have a facebook page and a google my business with tracking numbers on them and they work. I spend some money on Facebook ads and I drive all my business this way.

Your own website, surrounded by Facebook and YouTube along with Google Reviews is a great start. Your physical market may take some time to get traction due to competition that is ahead of you, so be realistic in planning for results to take some time to build up.

Re: What Do You Guys Use To Get Leads?


We found a guy that builds websites and manages them. He built us a really simple site that drives tons of traffic to our business. You could do something similar to our site Abilene Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Our site brings us around 5 new leads a week for remodeling jobs in the area. What's crazy is he doesn't charge a lot and is way better than Home Advisor, Angie's list, or Thumbtack combined. I could give you the dudes number if you are interested!

Next time I'm up to Abilene I'll holler at you and we should get a beer or lunch or something.
