content to help someone find contractors for me

The content below will probably be very helpful. Many months ago, I cold-called some contractors in Houston. These 3 recordings are not from Houston, but the rest of the email is specifically targeting Houston.

I picked these videos for you because they are short. Here are a couple of 90 seconds samples of my very fist calls to prospective contractors:

This next one is 5 minutes. (I have several other long recordings, because if the contractor has a lot of questions for me, then the first call can be 15 or 20 minutes long).

An important detail related to this last video is that I later learned that I was talking to the owner’s son, who is not the decision-maker. The person on the phone was very interested. His dad was not .
 

 

So, in the recordings above, I talk about sending them emails with more info. Below is an actual email like that (to a female general contractor- which is rare). She expressed interest on the phone and asked me to email her more info. Below is what I sent her. (She was another builder who had very strict zip code preferences, which I now expect to be typical there.)

 
Before the old email to her, here is a short extra introduction for you. As I said on the phone, it is much easier to attract a contractor’s interest when my pages are already ranking ahead of their for searches that interest them. So, here are a few samples from BING (which is not nearly as popular as Google with people under 40, but, with people over 55, BING gets a better portion of searches).
​My page was as high as #2 ​for this search (garage conversion houston), though my current ranks are #4 and #6. (So, I might want to take some actions to raise them back higher….)

Another page of mine is currently #4 on BING​ (under the 5 map listings) for

garage construction houston

​. That page has already generated local garage construction jobs.​

​For home additions, I have NOT targeted Houston yet, but I will RIGHT NOW as a demonstration. Currently my highest page for home additions houston​ on BING is at 21. I expect to be high on the first page within a few days though.    https://www.bing.com/search?q=+home+additions+houston

​Now, here is that old email to a prospective affiliate​:

Hi Nancy, we just spoke. Below are some details on how my program works, plus some example pages, plus a screenshot showing that my page is currently ranked #1 for this search: Garage conversion Houston TX. I can get similarly prominent rankings for other searches of interest to you, like for home additions or kitchen renovations or water damage restoration​ or (if relevant) commercial build-outs / tenant improvements.
 

M

​y program is based

​first ​

on finding high-quality contractors. How do I know who is high-quality? Usually, the best I can do is to

ask

​past ​

clients.

​ (Further, I also saw that www.buildzoom.com ranked you as ​being in the top 9% of all contractors in Texas – as shown in the image below.)

I was searching for contractors who had “garage conversions” listed as a service they provide. I was focusing on that service because I have been very successful with producing inquiries from homeowners for that service, plus it can easily be a $20,000 or even $40,000 renovation.

​Back to how I attempt to identify contractors that provide a very high quality of service, you can see that i

n the page below,

​I feature

audio recordings from my interview

​s with​

three clients of

​that specific​

contractor

​.

So, while it is not essential for me to customize a page that really “sells your company”

​ (with photos and audio)​,

that

​can be​

ideal for me (and for you).

​In the next example, I feature two audio reviews from real clients of a roofer.

​(Another common feature of my page is animated content that floats in: for example, see

Here is a nationwide page

​ (with content that is more generic to a particular service than about a particular contractor or company)​

:​

A variation on the above content:

​​

For the above website, one of my

​newest ​

pages is showing up on the first page of Bing as the #

​2

listing (for my primary search term)

If someone adds “TX” to their search, my page is #1:

​So, through Bing and Google is how homeowners get in to contact with me. ​

I can provide

​ you​

leads for

​home ​

​additions,

water damage restoration​

​,​

garage construction, ​

garage

​conversions (to interior living space)

​,​

o

r any other ​

other

​types of service requests that you would like​

​. Below I show some

​ “click​

data

​”​

for

​”​

carport conversions

​”

​(

​usually, from carport to a garage, but also could be converted in to a bedroom, sunroom etc
).​

​EXAMPLE: Here is a 

​table​

 of 20 recent CLICKS from 

​BING to ​
​one of my

 site

​s​

 focused on carport conversion

​ requests

You can skim through the search terms and recognize that most of those are exactly the kinds of searches that would appeal to

​a company that would like to enclose carports

​with a few new walls ​

and then install new garage doors on the newly converted garage​

. Th

​e data below is

all for greater Phoenix, but I can easily generate clicks for the

​ Houston

area. I have received dozen

​s of​

leads in my area and

​so far close to ten​

have resulted in contracts (hires).

To let me know what interests you most, email or call me.

​I will plan to contact you

​this Thursday unless I hear from you first

.

​Also, y

ou can learn more about what I am doing

​through​

the page

​ below​

, which includes a link about the specific compensation plans that ​I have accepted so far.

​ By the way, ​my background is as a marketing consultant, then as a web page designer and, then eventually as a “search engine specialist.” One of my “monthly clients” (a water damage restoration company) asked me to work for a commission (or finder’s fee) instead of charging them an hourly rate. I eventually said “yes” and then offered a similar arrangement to a few other companies in Arizona who had already been my clients, and that went well enough that I started expanding in to other regions.
