Leads

Wondering if anyone has used Service Magic or any other of these lead generating type businesses. If so, what are you thoughts? Did you have success? Thanks.

I am not sure how bit your company is but my company uses Data Fax and Reed Construction Data. They are very good. It is 80% new construction and its all commercial.

I use Quality smith. Since I started 4 years ago. Nice when your slow. Carried me thru a couple of winters. They call you with a lead. I ask them for some details on the lead, and If I decide I want it I take it. 75.00 per lead. Get maybe 1 a month some times more. U can give them a list of towns you want to work in. You bid against 2 or 3 other companies. Ive gotton some nice jobs out of them.

They are expensive, and NO success

Did a trail with Service Magic a couple years ago. When a lead came in from my area they texted me the details without giving names numbers, etc. Decided for $40-50 per lead it wasn’t worth it.

Know of a contractor who uses the service and gets jobs from it. The key may be to be there asap.

Service Magic is tricky to work with.

I put up 6’x12’Billboard,canvased over 100 flyers and 50 buis. cards and am on merchant circle.com,yellow book.com,google search,and web site is getting visits, and 1 call in 3 weeks. Service magic is my only caller,besides slow suppliers that are looking for sales. Dead area! And King William thinks it is bad,lol…

I think all that phonebook.com crap is just that… bunch of crap. People still look in the real phone book.

I agree Marshall,but could not make the yellow pages this year. It has slimmed down to 6 pages 2 full page 2 1/2 pages and the little adds on the rest . Lats year there were 8 full page 4 1/2pages 2 1/4 pages and 3 little add pages. Just shows that there were too many roofers advertising. Most of the #s were disconnected.
My wife has a sight that she goes on,and she did a pole of who uses what to find a Proffesional service,and Goole was the most popular.over 85%.
