Remodeling is a numbers game. As your business grows, you will be handling a dizzying amount of marketing and sales sources. Keeping track of them can be a challenge, but it is also critical to profitably building your business. Each lead source will perform differently, both in how much it costs to generate a lead, as well as in how many leads turn into closed business.

Think about it, a referral who knows you is a hotter lead than a Home Advisor customer who doesn’t know you. That should factor into how much you are willing to pay for each lead!

So, you need to be tracking your performance for each marketing channel.

Here’s what to look for:

  • What percentage of leads from this source are qualified (in my area and interested in my services)?
  • What percentage of qualified leads set appointments?
  • What percentage of appointments sit for a demonstration?
  • What percentage of demonstrations close?

If you don’t know which lead sources are generating what sales, you need a plan to find out. Download our lead-tracking guide here for an easy solution to that problem!
