Whether or not it’s right for you, that’s something you’ll have to decide.
decide to use HA to grow your business, here are some insights that I’ve gained that will help you close more leads and make more money.
I did this in April of last year and was amazed at the results. I wouldn’t even THINK of signing up with Service Magic or any of those types of services.
You are better off posting a flyer in the kinds of stores you go to, which will lead you to the kind of people you will get along with.Taken from the Home Advisor Website: “We changed our name to reflect our commitment to being the #1 resource for home improvement tips, advice and connections.” I have to admit, it’s a much better name and it will help them resonate with home owners.They are now branding themselves as an advisor which is more authoritative than just a magical service provider.You will still get your foot in the door and can bank on the return business.After you’ve been using the service for a while, it’s a good idea to go back over your leads and see which categories pay off and which one’s provide mostly junk leads. I got listed on Angie’s List early on, and that provided some leads, though I must say they are a mixed bag. When I get that, new clients trust me right away, and I can usually trust them based on the referral.Not only does HA build links back to their own site in the small business’s name, but they also list HA’s phone number.
