Re: Service Magic


Be very leary of these lead generators. They are selling the same leads to not only many contractors, but also to other lead generators who are re-selling the leads to other contractors.

Do you know how Service Magic gets their leads? From their website. Why don't you just do the same. Get yourself a good looking website that ranks high in Google and Yahoo for the services that you offer and then you will start getting the same potential customers coming to your website that Service Magic has coming to their website. Just A Thought.

Why pay several hundered to these lead generators each month when you can have your own for $200 per mo.

Thats the only advertising I do for my brick paving business and it keeps 3 crews busy 9 months out of the year. twobrothersbrickpaving.com

Yes, Result Imaging was just started in October of 2008. We are a new division of Clear Imaging (clearimaging.com). Clear Imaging just designs websites for paver installers. We now have started Result Imaging, brand new, to service companies outside of the Hardscaping industry.

Do a search in Google for: "site by clearimaging.com" and you will see the well over 2,000 websites we have designed and managed.

I promise, no scams Frank Albert. Just high quality websites.

I run a brick paving business called Two Brothers Brick Paving serving Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus Ohio. Try searching for a Brick Paving Company in any of those cities and tell me who you find.

Thanks for looking out for us contractors though, there are a lot of scammers out there.

Re: Service Magic


I dealt with Serve Magic, what a rip off, these are the types of companies who need to be put out of business, in my area they are giving leads to unlicensed contractors who take jobs under $600.00 so they get under the State Laws, Then these companies are doing larger jobs, cause Service Magic got them in the door. I found that by doing a check on the State of Michigan website most of the companies getting work from Service Magic are Unlicensed

Service magic is a rip off. Now that things are getting tough out there they are sending potential leads to people that do not exist. I choose not to use them.
