I’ve been roofing for about 10 years now and just started my own company. What are some useful ways to generate solid leads when work slows down?
A super soaker and some kerosene…
very helpful. Thank you.
Just kidding. Hook up with some general contractors…its work and good builders are an awesome referral source… Better?..
Door knocking and Google ad words.
Here are my favorite ways to generate roofing leads:
- Google AdWords
- Facebook Groups
- YouTube Ads
- Craigslist Ads
- Bandit Signs
- Local Classified Ads (newspaper)
- Ask past customers
- Partner with someone to generate phone calls for you. (shameless plug)
Best leads are when homeowners find you. You should definitely have a website. Its like a sales person working 24/7 for you.
Also i recommend you sign up here https://www.roofcalc.org/roofers/ - homeowners are looking for contactors on that site and you get up to 5 free leads per month
I am taking this thread in terms of roofing leads as there are many other types of industries where meaning of a lead may be different. The best way to generate leads is door to door canvassing in the storm affected area. And if it is done with the help of professional canvasser, then it could be a gold mine for the roofing company.
