Have you ever purchased leads from an online source promising to give you exclusive leads or possibly shared with only three other contractors? It is entirely possible you received leads or prospective business leads that were already in the midst of completing their project. Maybe you cheerfully called your prospective customer only to be greeted by hostility because you were the 8th person to have called today! How does this happen?
I won’t go so far as to say these companies are scamming, but they certainly are a bit misleading. They work on a cost per lead plan that range from $25 to $150 per lead. Often purported as exclusive leads or “shared with only 3 contractors in your area”, these leads services have left much to be desired.
There are a variety of ways to gain traffic to your website using pay per click, search engine optimization, and affiliate advertising to name a few. The affiliate advertising method is the most dangerous and is often the culprit in most old or outdated pieces of information sold to hungry and work starved contractors. Quite often these affiliates find old recycled lead information and fill out the forms for their affiliate program, collect their money, and are on to the next bogus operation. Don’t misunderstand, not all leads services use affiliates, but a good share of them do.
Recently, I ran across a new Fort Worth online business who is living up to the promise of exclusive leads. This netrepreneur had gone through every online leads source that could be found and discovered they are basically the same. He decided to create the kind of leads service that a business owner really wants, exclusive leads and low cost.
If you visit http://contractor-leads.inthelocalfortwortharea.com you will find one of the most refreshingly straight forward and truly online contractor leads sources. They offer leads for every type of service you can imagine and will custom create a category for you. The pages are set up to have a programmable telephone number forwarded to you and an online form that is quick and simple to fill out with the information forwarded directly to you. The information is not resold, rerouted, recycled, or shared with any other purchasers. They are yours (the subscriber’s) 100%.
Traffic to these pages is generated organically. People who are searching for the specific services and products are looking for them in the Fort Worth area. The web pages are specifically keyword optimized to draw maximum traffic from the area. Potential customers don’t necessarily want to deal with someone out of Austin, Houston, or even Dallas unless necessary. These customers want local contractors and service companies in or near Fort Worth. Contractors with pages for their services are looking for business in the local Fort Worth area as well. Customers find the kinds of contractors and service providers they are looking for while the contractors and service providers build their businesses affordably. It is a win/win for both. Future plans are to have a customer comment section for each service.
Additional traffic is generated through advertising to industry specific organizations, directories, and websites visited by people searching for service and product providers. Two years of research and design went into the website creation and the service launched only a few weeks ago. Many categories are still available for you to investigate and you can even have your own category for developing exclusive leads for your business.
I recommend you discover if your category is available and get ready for finally obtaining your own exclusive leads to help you build your online or offline business. And, if you happen to be a consumer looking for a contractor in the local Fort Worth area, give them a try!
