Do you know how often we hear this? Especially in the local Southern Maine area, and especially with service businesses (Landscaper, Builder, Electrician, Plumber). They are so busy they have to say no to people calling. They don’t need MORE online leads!
Okay, I hear you, but here’s the thing:
1. The leads are coming in, but are they the right ones?
Is the work you’re doing the work you actually WANT to do? Or, is the work you’re doing your most profitable work? Perhaps your phone is ringing off the hook, but you’re getting jobs you don’t love doing.
Your website can help you fix that.
If you build your website correctly, and you market the work you want to do rather than the work you’re currently doing you’ll find that you’ll start getting the work you want to do.
How do you do this? You create a services page and write all about the services you want to do. You create blogs about those services, and you add photos of those completed (or in-process) jobs to show your expertise.
Your website now shows that you are an expert in that area.
Or 2. Now you actually do need leads.
Here’s the thing. Right now, you have a lot of leads, work is great. Then suddenly, the phone stops ringing, now what?
Now you need some leads, but you don’t have a web presence. While you were so busy, your competitors were still focused on building a web presence and targeting the jobs they want (see above). Now, they’ve cornered the market and are getting all the good leads. You’re ready to build your website and optimize your web presence, but you have a lot of work to do to catch up and rank for keywords that your competitors are already ranking for.
It’s not impossible to do, but ranking takes time, and effort, it’s not magic.
