4 Reasons To Call Every Lead & Homeowner

It seems simple enough, but turns it out, many contractors are not calling their leads or returning potential customers’ phone calls. Simply put, you are saying no to new business.

But, besides closing fewer jobs, there are other drawbacks to not calling leads or responding to every homeowner that contacts you. See a few obvious and a few not-so-obvious downsides to not calling your leads.

If you’re not getting as many leads as you hoped this summer, give us a call at 866-456-6977. We can quickly change that!


Industry News: May 2017

As June comes along, most contractors get busier with new jobs. However, you should still find time to stay-up to-date on the latest industry trends. To help, we’ve rounded up some of the top headlines for you.

Busy season is here but reports are showing that the warmer winter has already given contractors the opportunity to get more business. And depending on your trade, there are a few new regulations that can benefit you. See a few of our top spring and summer headlines to help prepare you for summer.


Online Marketing Works & Here’s Proof

There’s no question that referrals and word of mouth reign supreme when it comes to home remodeling leads. In fact, I am looking to do some flooring and painting work in my new condo and the first thing I did was reach out to friends. They gave me some names and I received five solid quotes.

Nevertheless, the referral river of leads can run dry and no matter how long you’ve been in the business, you’ll have to find leads online. Longtimers may disagree, but the stats and testimonials from CraftJack contractors below prove it!


The Significance Of Dedicated Account Managers

There are other lead generation platforms out there, but very few, if any, offer dedicated account managers. One-on-one account managers ensure you talk to same person every time you need to change your budget, pause your account or add a new service. Fortunately, dedicated account managers bring additional advantages other lead generation companies simply do not offer.

Interested in your own account manager? Give us a call at 866-456-6977.

The personal touch should always be appreciated, but sadly, many larger lead generation companies forgot this important customer service feature. As lead generation companies grow, their customer services departments do not grow with them. As a result, they form call centers where any available account manager answers the next phone call.
