Any ideas on how i can promote and market my company better? How to get more costumers.?
Ryan, I have been a Home Advisor customer since Sep of 2010. one of my companies, Superior Home Solutions is listed with them; I have accumulated 198 reviews, making number in number of reviews out of 85,000 members in the network.
In sum, the ROI (return on investment) has been great and they also have been very good in giving me credit on leads that were beyond the scope of my expertise/catagory. The key to being successful with them is to answer the lead within 30 seconds of notification and being persistent on contacting the lead in case you did not make initial contact.
While I plan on keeping HA, today i signed with Yodle PPC (pay per click) program. The reason I chose Yoddle is because they have a very strong proprietery system that computes the proper keywords that will best convert in your trade. You're given a dashboard that tells you who clicked on your placement ads...all geographic locations are recorded to monitor traffic and frequency. This is all managed by Yoddle and the ad campaigns change based on what their proprietery system recommends.
I have contacted 15 active users (contractors, dentists, spa owners, inspectors, surgeons). All have yielded significant results on their ROI. However, all said that the optimization takes 45 to 90 days for the system to tweak the proper keywords that best converts into sales.
I joined 3 days ago, and received my first lead today. The lead converted into a sale. It was a general home inspecton lead for a 2000 square feet home. I charged them 375.00 for the inspection. My monthly budget with Yodle for the next 90 days is 200.00 per month. I have already recovered my expense for the rest of the month. I plan on increasing the monthly budget as i see an increase in the ROI.
