Ep 3 – Electrical Startups & How To Make The Phones Ring – Angie’s List, Home Advisor, Yelp, & More
Well its April, we're 7 months in and we've gained a lot of knowledge of many of the paid services out there to advertise your business through. We've tried most of them, but there are still a few we need to test.
In this episode we talk about the different paid lead services we've used since inception and which ones are worth the buck. From Angie's List, to Home Advisor, Yelp, Yellow Pages, Houzz, Facebook, AdIQ, Google AdWords, and Yodle - we've tried them all. I talk about the pros and cons, and who we've liked using but most importantly which one makes the phones ring! Starting your own electrical contracting company requires paying money to be seen by customers. There's no getting around it until you get to the point where you can work from straight referrals.
All of these services will work, and all of them will produce phone calls and emails for you to drum up work with - however some are far more fruitful than others for far less money.
