Hey Guys,

My name is Shane Hunter, and I am a contractor marketing specialist. I'm not your typical sleazy salesman however.

I was born and raised contractor blood. It's what my Dad did, it's what his friends did, and it's even what I did for a few years with my own Hardscape/Landscape company.

I never fell in love with ServiceMagic or respond.com when I was a contractor because it just kind of 'put me in the mix' amongst other contractors in my area, and sure there were "add on's" that could make you kind of stick out, as the guy that paid ServiceMagic more money... =) But really, there was never any difference between servicemagic, and the yellow pages.

He who bought the full page ad, on the first page of your industry won.

Anyone else experience this?

Oh... plus I was also against paying for each and every lead. It just hurt my pockets more than it helped. The worst thing was paying for leads that were fraudulent. So many hours on the phone arguing for money back because some wifey at home wanted a service, but her husband didn't want it - and it was a no-go.

Again, what are your experiences? And if you could, how would you improve on these types of services?

I got very few jobs and spent more time on chasing tire kickers instead of doing work. It is a great idea but you should pay for good quality leads. I wonder some times if some of the leads even existed as I could not get response from some so called leads
