This Podcast Is Episode Number 0387, And It's About Five Practical Ways To Get More Leads For Your Construction Business

It's unexpected these days that people happen to find your business and become a client or customer with no work on your part. Your construction company has to grab people's attention, turn curious visitors into leads, and then convert those leads into sales.

This means that the more solid leads you have, the greater your chances of making a sale. Solid leads are those contacts engaged in your business, fit your buyer persona, and are at least somewhat motivated to make a purchase or hire your services.

Here are five great ways to develop more solid leads for your construction business:

1. Target your ideal clients

You might want your business to be relevant to everybody, but the reality is that a specific target client is ideal for your construction business. Those clients are the ones who are most likely to be attracted to your services and, therefore, the most likely to purchase them.

These are the people to aim your marketing at. Knowing who they are and what they like helps you develop the products and services they'll use. It also saves you money on marketing because you can target your ideal clients, rather than marketing to everybody and hoping somebody shows some interest.

Even more important, when you understand your ideal clients, you can build connections with them more effectively, generating leads that can turn into sales.

2. Know your Unique Value Proposition

Your unique value proposition is what makes you different from your competition. Every business has something that sets it apart and therefore attracts a specific market.

Your products or services might be of a higher quality. You might have better loyalty programs or more specialized staff. Even the size of your business can be a unique value proposition. Smaller construction businesses can claim more personal, attentive, and efficient service for their clients. Large construction companies may be able to handle larger or global accounts.

Determine what makes your business different from your competition and use that uniqueness in your marketing.

3. Attend (virtual) networking events

Networking events are a great way to get some face-to-face time with potential leads. Yes, in-person marketing takes time and energy, and you can only talk to so many people at a time. But hearing an entrepreneur speak passionately about their business can be very persuasive.

Meeting people at events - whether in-person or online gives you a chance to talk to your potential clients and hear what issues they need to solve.

Just make sure the networking events you attend are relevant to your construction business and your ideal clients' functions. Otherwise, you'll be wasting that valuable time and energy.

4. Create high-value content

With so many people using the Internet to find companies and make purchasing decisions, you need to ensure your business is easily found. Conclusion: that means developing high-value, informative website content compelling and encouraging page visitors to submit their contact information.

Make sure you use engaging calls to action. Write blog posts that drive traffic to your website. Develop tip sheets that quickly address some of your clients' issues and get people to sign-up to receive them. Create a newsletter that clients can subscribe to. The people on your newsletter subscription list become leads.

Make sure, however, that your content is timely, engaging, and relevant to your clients and your business.

5. Join a local Facebook group

I know not everyone has a Facebook account. But this is something I recommend and perhaps you can give thoughtful consideration. Check your Facebook for Handyman, Home Improvement professional, Builder group, or particular to your line of work, and most likely, it will be filled with homeowners looking for services and contractors offering their services.

It's free to join and connect with local homeowners and business owners alike. This is an excellent opportunity to be more purposeful in sharing helpful photos, videos, and messages to get to know you and your business. The key to avoiding being "salesy" is maximizing your personality and minimizing promotions.

In conclusion

Leads don't just magically appear out of thin air. It takes time and effort to develop quality contacts that turn into paying customers. By knowing who your ideal clients are, understanding your unique value proposition, putting in some face-to-face time, and developing relevant content, you can quickly increase your solid leads this year.
