It’s Time To Scale Your Home Services Lead Generation Campaigns by Chris Pink, SVP Sales, Digital Media Solutions (DMS), April 16, 2023 As the weather warms up, home services brands should be looking for ways to maximize and modernize their lead generation strategies, with advertisers aiming to connect with high-intent consumers at the right places and times, and with the right offers to drive clicks, calls, and leads. The following five optimizations are expert recommendations home services advertisers can deploy to reach consumers when and where they are researching and shopping. These lead-generation campaign optimizations are designed to boost engagement and conversions, delivering quality leads at scale. Build Your Email Database With Opted-In Hand-Raisers Email is a powerful driver of lead generation efforts, and one of the best ways to scale email campaigns (and their results) is with CRM builder campaigns that deliver opted-in subscribers ready to hear from you. At Digital Media Solutions (DMS), our list-building campaigns leverage traffic sources and owned-and-operated and partner websites to engage audiences that match an advertiser’s ideal subscriber. When consumers match an advertiser profile, prospect information is collected, and advertisers only pay for net-new subscribers. Go Bold For Home Services Lead Generation Campaigns When The Season Drives Consumers Online Where and when home services campaigns are launched can have an impact on their success. Advertisers that sell seasonal products, like lawn care, need to capture consumer attention during the discovery phase of the purchasing journey when shoppers are still browsing for the best offers and deals. Campaigns can ramp up and offer more timely deals and packages once it’s actually time to make a decision. Understanding consumer intent and reaching your target audience when they are ready to buy is essential for scaling home services leads. Make Sure Consumers Find You When Searching For Home Services Options Looking for more inbound calls? Consider adding agent-initiated warm transfers, which are calls that are pre-vetted by a third-party call center before arriving at the advertiser’s doorstep. 62% of consumers looking for HVAC services will call after conducting online searches, which means home services companies with click-to-call options across their advertising may be likelier to garner engagement and sales. DMS understands the value each publisher brings to our call network and the advertisers the network supports. We offer multiple pay-per-call solutions, including consumer-generated calls, warm transfers, search-generated click-to-call and SMS-generated calls. Discover the benefits of working with one of the broadest publisher call networks in the industry. Become a preferred publisher today! Use Social Media To Support Home Services Lead Generation Campaigns Often used for brand building, social media campaigns can also support lead generation efforts by driving traffic to form-based landing pages or leveraging in-platform lead forms. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok can be used to highlight promotions, completed jobs, and lifestyle messaging. This kind of diverse content across social media channels can drive organic growth and direct consumers back to websites where they can opt to fill out inquiry forms or conduct more research. Leverage Promotions & Savings To Attract Bargain-Shopping Consumers Home services campaigns can leverage promotions that offer free quotes, no-commitment estimates, one-click consultations, limited-time deals, and gifts with purchase. These types of offers give people a reason to click now and can boost conversion rates.
