At CraftJack, we want to set you up for success. That’s why we send qualified leads generated in real time. For our pros, this is a huge benefit to the growth of their business. Read on for more benefits of CraftJack’s real-time leads.

Why Does Real Time Matter?
When a homeowner submits a lead, there are many stages they could be in with their project. Our data shows that 54% of homeowners are in the planning and budgeting stage and 37% are ready to hire. With that information in mind, timing is key.
For leads that are ready to hire, receiving these leads in real time is key. This means the homeowner is ready to get their project started and needs your help as soon as possible. According to our data, here are the trades that have the most homeowners who are ready to hire:
- Snow Removal
- Drywall & Insulation
- Landscaping & Lawn Care
A pro who’s contacted in the planning stage has a unique opportunity to differentiate themselves from the competition by being attentive and helping the homeowner make the best plans for their project. With a real-time lead, you can quickly contact the customer and let them know your interest in the project. Going the extra mile for your customer is sure to help win the job. According to our data, here are the trades that receive the most leads for homeowners looking for help in the planning and budgeting stage:
- Additions & Remodels
- Solar Energy
- Concrete & Masonry
While our data shows that 42% of homeowners have flexible timing on their projects, 17% are looking to start their projects within a week. This is another reason why real-time leads are a necessity. For those looking to get started within a week, they want to hire someone as quickly as possible to get the job done.
What Makes CraftJack’s Leads Unique
CraftJack knows that speed is important when winning the job; that’s why our leads are sent to you immediately. Our goal is to get you the new lead as quickly and efficiently as possible. You can choose to receive leads through text, email or a phone call, whatever you use the most frequently.
Our leads come from homeowners looking for local pros like you. You’ll never get an old lead. Because we find and gather all our leads, that means you’ll be sent only the latest from us and only us. That’s because we generate our own leads for you. See this video to learn more about how CraftJack finds local homeowner leads near you.
The reason real-time leads are so important is because you need to call fast. According to data from Marketsharp, 78% of homeowners choose the first company to contact them for the job. So not only is the speed of receiving the lead important, but you need to be calling just as quickly. On top of offering real-time, quality leads, we’re also giving you a 20% discount on leads called within 30 minutes.
By contacting a lead as soon as you receive it, you’re increasing your chances of winning that job. In fact, 65% of our contractors are taking advantage of this unique discount by calling within the first 30 minutes of receiving their lead. However, keep in mind, it may take more than one call to reach the homeowner. Be persistent and set a reminder to call back to follow up.
Winning The Job
Here at CraftJack, we do our best to set you up for success with our real-time leads and speed-to-call discount. However, it’s up to you to win the job. While calling quickly is important, the customer service you give to the homeowner will differentiate you from the competition.
Have a good sales strategy for when you’re on the phone. Take the time to listen to the homeowner and their project needs. Ask questions that will help lead you to a solution for both parties.
You’ll also want to be clear about what makes your business stand out. Of course, a quick call will certainly set you apart, but what else makes your business different?
Lastly, always be clear about how the potential customer can best contact you. If you’ve decided to set up an estimate or a simple phone call to discuss the project more, be sure to set clear expectations and timing. Don’t show up or call late, after all, you’re still making a first impression. Clarity is key when landing the job!
CraftJack’s qualified, real-time leads are certainly a unique benefit for our contractors. Our goal is to help you successfully land the job and grow your business, so we’re giving you the tools to do so.
