I appreciate your response and apologize for the calls. I do know if asked to be put on our do not call list we do our best to follow through on that. If you are in a high demand areas please understand why we might try and secure a good contractor for that area. If we have homeowners that need that work done in that area we are failing them if we provide no one. If you send me an email I will make sure you are removed from any further interest in your company.
I also understand where you are coming from and am in no way claiming that we are always going to be the best method for every company. 40,000 contractors have found us to be a great tool for their company and for those that stay with us a year or longer averaged an increase in their annual sales by 28% while decreasing marketing costs.
If you are looking to increase productivity or cut costs by reducing windshield time then we are a great fit. If you find yourself wishing you could focus on more profitable/enjoyable work then we are a great fit. If you want a marketing tool that creates a web page and spends close to a million dollars each month making sure homeowners find it, then we are a great fit. If you feel word of mouth is a great source of business for your company then again we provide an excellent fit by allowing your customers to provide ratings and reviews helping you sell your company before you even talk with them.
Lets look at a worst case scenario. Lets say I send you 10 leads at $45 for a new Asphalt Shingle Roof Install. That is $450 you just spent for one job. How much did you make off that roof?
Lets say again worst case scenario you barely broke even, you still made a profit by taking care of that customer who not only will sell your business for you by giving a rating and review but what about all that time your trucks spent in front of his home? I am sure at least one neighbor, friend, or family noticed their new roof. I also am sure they will ask who did such a great job!
Now the next Service Magic customer comes along and submits a request. They see the website we create for you. Sees pictures of your work and more importantly they see a rating and review from your customer. They have examples of your work, they know you are licensed, insured, criminally checked, and they have references!
So how much was that one sale really worth now? Now you are closing more of the leads I am sending you. And to be honest this still does not touch the power and control we give you.
Why does it seem to make more sense or be more cost effective to mail out thousands of direct mailers where the average return on investment is around 1-2%? I also want to make it clear I am not down playing any other marketing tool as they all achieve what you are looking for. But I will debate whether or not my service is cost effective or not! Especially when you can tell us when you want work and when you don't, when you tell me exactly where you want to work (so create a 2 mile radius for all I care) for the EXACT type of work you WANT to offer. If we fail in that then we will provide a lead replacement.
Simply put if you are too busy, I can help. If you are not busy enough I can help. Service Magic is an EXCELLENT tool for any company that takes an honest look at. Again why else would we have over 40,000 contractors?
Here is what one of your peers had to say about Service Magic.
"Since joining ServiceMagic, our revenue has increased 25% while our marketing costs have dropped 50%. Thanks to ServiceMagic, I've been able to purchase three new trucks!"
