Question About A Computer Program Used To Find Customers Searching For You Online


Well first off, let me introduce myself.

My name is Nick Shadwell and i recently received a C-17 Glaziers contracting license.

With that being said, I used to work for this very successful window and door company who used a certain computer program that would show a list of people doing searches online for new windows and doors that showed their contact information with a phone numbers attached to call.

They would designate two people 8 hours a day to make phone calls trying to sell them their product and it worked very well.

Unfortunately they wouldnt tell me exactly what program it was or how they did it so im on here seeing if anyone might know what im talking about

Shadwell, they are using a lead capture form on one or multiple websites and creating a call back list. Additionally, they are using remarketing lists and audiences also captured by the websites lead capture form or by a remarketing pixel embedded on the website. In essence, you need a website with organic traffic or paid traffic, depending on your location, you may be able to get fast results with paid traffic, I.E. a Google Ads campaign linked to website that converts well.

I hang up on sales calls so no amount of money spent hunting for me would be worth it.

There is no magical software.

Capture your leads than decide what you want to do with then

That definitely sounds like they were doing lead capture. There's no way to get that kind of info just from people searching on Google or elsewhere. They had to willingly give it up to someone.
