So the next big question for home improvement contractors is….

 

What’s A Cost Effective Way To Capture This Business Growth?

There are basically 3 ways to take advantage of online leads.

1. SEO – search engine optimization is the science or art of ranking your business website on the first page of the search engines so prospects can find you. To accomplish this you’ll need some skills and knowledge in modern SEO techniques. Alternatively you can hire an SEO company that specializes in the home improvement industry. Bear in mind that this is a process and will take time to achieve the rankings your desire

2.Paid Ads – Paid ads, PPC or pay per click ads is simply buying ads on the first page of the search results. The search engines will tell you that anyone can create an ad and achieve page 1, this is true but without some working knowledge of the system ad cost can put this out of reach for many. Hiring a company to manage the ads is a great way to go for many companies. But for most small contractor businesses the cost is just too high and out of reach.

3. Leads – Pay per lead programs have become increasingly popular. The popularity is due to the fact that this is a much more palatable option for most home improvement contractors. The cost is much lower and results are more immediate than SEO.
