New lockdown guidance which states that door-to-door selling is to be stopped and in-home sales are to be done remotely in areas in any tier of restrictions is a cause for concern to installers.
But the current climate does not have to stop you from winning the work you want during this time – particularly as the demand is out there.
That’s the view of Andy Royle, co-founder, and Director of Leads 2 Trade.
The UK’s leading provider of double-qualified sales leads from its comparison quote websites for companies operating in the home improvement industry is getting thousands of enquiries a week from homeowners looking for windows, doors, conservatories, and conservatory roof replacements.
“Since the focus has fallen onto our homes during last year’s lockdown, demand for home improvements has been sky high as homeowners spent their money on their homes instead of holidays, and this is continuing,” said Andy.
“We are seeing a huge number of enquires a week and installers are missing out, particularly as we make it was easy as possible for our members to win work.”
Leads are phone qualified by Leads 2 Trade’s experienced in-house customer service team to guarantee the consumer has a genuine interest and requirement and is wanting a quotation, saving installers time and money.
The lead is supplied with full accompanying notes including material type, colour preference and number of items, with a preferred time of day for the installer to contact the homeowner so they are expecting the call.
The Stockport-based company has also scrapped the traditional model used by so many other lead providers of supplying a consumer with up to four no obligation quotes from installers from their local area, with its leads only going to two installers, meaning the consumer gets the comparison quote they require and the installer a better chance of winning the work.
When setting up an account with Leads 2 Trade installers can decide which postcodes and products they want their leads to cover, and they only pay on a per lead basis.
“Since we formed Leads 2 Trade back in 2006 the digital lead generation market has changed enormously. However, there are some things that are constant and lead quality is at the top of that list,” said Andy. “And the reason we are out in front of our competitors is because we have always been able to guarantee that quality to our members.”
Securing work despite the restrictions
With door-to-door selling banned, keeping the leads flowing in will be vital for installers, and becoming a Leads 2 Trade member will guarantee that flow.
“While it’s good news for installers that fittings for home improvements can continue during lockdown, the ban on door-to-door selling, particularly when demand for home improvements is high, will hit many installers hard,” added Andy.
“Door to door selling makes up a big percentage of how regional companies and smaller installers obtain leads and having that avenue of blocked off will be a concern, but we can provide them with all the leads they need.
Free leads to get you started
As an introductory offer for the start of 2021, Leads 2 Trade is offering installers that sign up to its network two free double qualified sales leads when they open a new account.
