How Email Marketing Can Increase Your Remodeling Company’s Leads
As a professional remodeler, you’re the expert homeowners trust for all their remodeling wants and needs. Over the years, you’ve created a large customer base of those who trust you for kitchen additions, master suite remodels, custom home builds, and more. This customer base you’ve created is the reason why email marketing can be extremely effective for remodeling companies like yours!
With email marketing, your audience has already opted-in to receive your content. It’s likely that the people on your email list are existing customers or prospective customers that have filled out a contact form on a website—because you should NEVER purchase an email list. If someone has already shown interest in your remodeling services, give them what they want! Sending a regular email newsletter is a cost-effective way to ensure you’re the remodeler that is constantly in the minds of your customers—which is right where you want to be.
Check it out—one email marketing client had 545 visits from their email newsletter in only three months (that’s an extra 181 website visits per month!):
32 of those were visits with conversions through web forms, but that’s not all—there were an additional 112 phone leads from email during this three month time period! Yes, you heard that correctly. That is a total of 144 leads from their email newsletters in just three months.
The best part? A visit from your newsletter is most likely a person who is already interested in your remodeling company and is therefore more likely to turn into a sale. A nurtured lead increases sales 20 percent more than a cold lead, which is why a smart email marketing campaign is one of the single most effective ways to build relationships with your customers—both existing and new.
