Message from Cecilia deLaRosa
If you’ve struggled to use the internet to generate leads, if you’ve tried advertising in popular online directories, if you’ve spent thousands of dollars on SEO, pay per click, flyers, and social media, if you’ve talked to marketing “experts” who promised the moon but failed to deliver, then you’re about to find the tools you’ve been waiting for since you opened your business.
Now, I understand that this may sound like “hype.”
In fact, it may remind you of other sales pitches you’ve heard over the years. But I encourage you to read this page all the way to the end if you’re serious about taking your business to the next level. Your potential to expand is limitless using just a few simple tools to help you out.
Back to Your Current Reality
I want you to think about all the problems you’re facing in your business today.
Think about how hard it’s been to find the right mix of marketing strategies to acquire enough clients to keep a positive cash flow each month. And having to deal with those annoying customers who have champagne taste on a beer budget.
And how about dealing with the constant onslaught of salespeople who want you to advertise with them or pay them thousands of dollars for the latest internet marketing gimmick… or sorry, I mean “program.”
Then there’s the stress and uncertainty you deal with on daily. Thoughts that cause you to question if you’re even doing the right thing:
• “Am I going to have enough cash flow next month to pay the bills?”
• “What am I going to do to avoid the winter slowdown?”
• “The world is changing so fast… how do I even keep up?”
And you may start to wonder if it’s all your fault. If something is wrong with you.
Well, I’m here to tell you that:
The Reason You Struggle to Get Leads Isn’t Because Something’s Wrong With You…
No. It has more to do with the fact the world has changed. More specifically, the customers you’re trying to reach have changed. They’ve gone digital.
As you know, your customers no longer call contractors listed in the Yellow Pages. Instead, they pull out their phones and turn to Google.
And if you’re like most contractors we work with you already know this. So the problem isn’t that you don’t know your customers have gone digital… the problem, the real issue, is you’ve tried to use the internet to generate business before… but it always feels like a losing battle.
Maybe you’ve spent thousands of dollars on different marketing and advertising programs and none seem to work. And when you talk to the people who sell these services you quickly realize the only thing they will guarantee is that they’ll be charging you a hefty bill each and every month!
Of course, they all talk a good talk and are able to get you excited about the latest new shiny thing out there… but that excitement quickly disappears as you wonder month and after month, Is this really worth it? I’m not seeing results… I’m going to call these guys and either cancel or ask them to explain why I’m not getting more leads.
Yet, somehow they talk you off the ledge. And you agree to wait a little longer. You tell yourself, This just takes time. It’ll payoff down the road.
Why 90% of Contractors Fail to
Get Results with Online Marketing
The reason why 90% of contractors fail to get results with online marketing is that they approach it all wrong. They think they “just need to do something.” So when the next internet marketing salesman calls in, they decide to sign up.
The bad part is most contractors don’t know what they’re really signing up for. They pay thousands of dollars for a new website that looks nice but doesn’t produce any leads… When they ask why their website isn’t getting any traffic they’re told, “Oh that’s because you need to start blogging so you can have fresh content on your site.”
So the contractor hires a freelance blogger to write once a week… after several months the website is still a ghost town… When he asks his blog writer why, he’s told, “Oh, that’s because you need to be doing SEO.”
And when one SEO firm fails to get him on the first page of Google he goes to the next guy until he finally pulls the plug on SEO in frustration!
“Maybe you should try social media,” some young 20-year-old kid says.
So the contractor creates a Facebook business page with high hopes. Until the reality hits that people aren’t logging in to Facebook to find contractors. They’re there to see what their friends and family are up to.
This is why so many contractors tell me they’d rather get a root canal then deal with this stuff. It’s so confusing and overwhelming.
Thankfully, there’s a better way…
Finally… A Solution Built Specifically For Contractors
My name is Cecelia DeLaRosa and I’m the Director of American Contractors Organization. For over 14 years I’ve been focused on helping contractors solve their most pressing problems… everything from insurance requirements to helping contractors implement OSHA-compliant safety programs.
And several years ago I saw a big need that I didn’t feel was being properly met by existing services. I watched as several of these “consumer review” website gained popularity by promising to connect contractors with homeowners… for a “small fee.”
I won’t mention any names but I’m sure you’re very familiar with these sites. They charge an outrageous sum of money with the promise that you’ll be seen by homeowners looking for your service.
Now, for a while this seemed to work well for some contractors. But over the last few years the feedback I’ve heard has become more and more negative. And I’ve heard horror stories that make me wonder how some of these businesses are still operating today!
I thought, There’s got to be a better way.
So I decided to take a leap of faith and invest over $100,000 and 18 months into a secret project that would later be known as:
A Directory Where You Cannot Game the System
The Directory for Contractors™ is an innovative online platform where homeowners can find quality, licensed contractors and request bids directly from them without paying any fees.
Unlike popular review websites, there is no way to “game” the system by paying more to show up higher in search results (this is one of the biggest reasons why consumers have lost faith in “consumer review” websites).
Instead we decided to build a directory that truly showcases your work while also building trust with homeowners.
As you know, homeowners want to hire contractors who are reliable, reputable, professional and experienced. And they look for these qualities in contractors when they start doing their research online.
That’s why it’s so important your company can be found online. And that you make such a great first impression online so that they’re compelled to call you and not your competitor.
We help you build that foundation of trust and create those great first impressions by inviting homeowners to go to one central place (The Directory) to read your customer reviews, browse through your photo gallery, watch videos displaying your work, and connect with you on social media.
(And if you need help with your photos, videos and social media don’t worry… we can help you with all that without breaking the bank. And you don’t have to be tech-savvy.)
By the way, our service is not based on selling you leads. That would be like fishing and selling you the fish. And if we did that we’d be no different than those other consumer review sites and suffer similar fates.
Instead, we’ll help you attract the fish you want so you have a steady stream of new leads month after month.
Here’s How It Works:
EXAMPLE OF LISTING
1. The homeowner selects the type of service they need (framing, flooring, roofing, etc.) and their location.
2. Then a list of contractors are displayed based on the proximity and trade (the homeowner may search by Company Name).
3. The homeowner clicks on a listing that looks like this:
As you can see there is a lot of helpful information available to homeowners. As a contractor you can share 21 pieces of information on your listing, including your:
• Photos & Videos
• Verified Business Badge
…and Social Media
More Than Just A Directory (Get These 7 Perks)!
In addition to being the “most trusted” directory for homeowners, contractors also get these 7 perks when they join. Including:
…(including personalized email templates!)
• Bids instantly emailed to your inbox from interested leads!
• Access to your Photo and Video Library!
• Ability to integrate blog posts with your Directory Listing!
• A custom QR Code that will link to your Directory Reviews!
• Power Listing optimization tool!
I don’t use the word “investment” lightly. But I truly believe that in business there are “costs” and “investments.” And they’re different. For something to truly be an investment it should generate a return.
In other words, you should be able to look back at the end of the year and see how many leads and sales came as a result of your “investment.” If you’re not able to do that then your advertising is a cost, not an investment.
So, how much does it cost?
Well, first off, if we were pricing this to be “competitive” with some of the other consumer review sites we were told we should charge around $400/month…
However, I know that many of those review sites don’t have a high retention rate so they HAVE to charge a lot to be profitable.
But we believe in this so much that we know if you sign up you’re going to renew for many years to come… So as a business owner I’m looking at the lifetime value of my customers.
This is why I’m willing to offer a crazy low price of only $995/year! That comes to only $75 a month. And if you sign up before DATE I’ll throw in another $100 discount bringing your price down to $895.
I challenge you to find another online service that offers so much for contractors for only $75/month. But wait, there’s more…
