What is Referral Marketing?
Referral marketing is when a warm lead is passed from a third party to the service provider.
This is not just handing you a list of emails and phone numbers and wishing you luck!!! A referral is a customer who is already reaching out wanting the service that you provide.
Word of mouth is powerful, but it only moves as fast as people meet each other.
Marketing is powerful, but the time and knowledge it takes to successfully pull it off can distract you from providing your business' service.
Referral marketing is powerful, and it doesn't require you to do anything but pick up the phone when a customer calls.
Why Choose Us Over Homeadvisor
We don't make money unless you're making more money.
Every business is different. So we work with every client to determine a fee that makes everybody happy.
Our costs come in two phases:
- Launch fee (one time per location)
Launching our assets to get you customers takes a considerable amount of effort and resources. We need to be able to cover all that. If you don't make your money back in 6 months, this fee is 100% refunded.
2. Referral fee (ongoing per referral)
Sit back and let the customers come to you. Only pay us for jobs you actually close. In the beginning we will calculate our fee per-job (just let us know the amount you charged them and we'll do the rest). After 3 months we'll average that out to a monthly fee. We re-evaluate every 3-6 months to ensure you are only paying for what you get.
Great question! Upon answering any call that we forward to you, you'll hear "Lead from GGM" right before the call connects.
But that's not all! When you become one of our referral marketing clients, we'll set you up with your very own business profile in our tracking system. By using the specific login information for your business, you'll gain access to a Personal Reporting Dashboard that keeps track of every lead we send your way. From this dashboard you'll be able to see graphs of your leads over time, listen the your own call recordings, leave comments for us to see about specific leads, and more!
The internet is a big, loud, and sometimes confusing place. It's likely that your customers are already looking for you online, just not in the right places. We specialize in finding these people all over the web and directing them to you, the person they've been looking for all along!
We have experience using a variety of methods for generating calls for service-based businesses—we'll cater our approach to the specific niches and cities that we're targeting for you. Our primary method is to craft highly targeted websites specifically designed to elicit more calls and/or emails for your business.
These websites are generically branded for the services that you provide—they are separate from any website that you own and use to represent your brand.
This can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the total volume of people in your area searching for your services and the strength of your competition in the market. If we're starting from scratch, our clients typically receive their first lead from us as within the first 1 to 3 months.
However, many of our clients get connected with us after we have already secured a steady stream of incoming leads for their area and niche. In this case, our clients can expect to start receiving quality referrals immediately.
We won't! Working on commission means that we're assuming all of the risk so that you don't have to.
For this reason, we like to take our time when getting to know prospective clients so that we can be sure we're only working with good, honest people. If you're reading this now, you're off to a good start! 😊
That being said, in order to protect ourselves, we may occasionally follow up with the leads we've sent you in order to verify order details and confirm that the customer is satisfied with the service they were provided.
We assign one or more tracking phone numbers to each of our clients and strategically place these numbers on the internet where your potential customers will find them. When a customer calls one of our numbers, their call is forwarded to whichever number you give us, and the call is recorded and tracked in our system.
We abide by all state and federal laws regarding telephone recordings—each customer will hear a standard automated message disclosing that the call will be recorded prior to the call being forwarded.
We may occasionally listen to these calls for training purposes so that we are better equipped to serve you to the best of our ability. We would be happy to discuss coaching opportunities if you and/or your team are interested in receiving constructive criticism on your sales calls or other business operations.
No. We have agreements just so the terms are clear, but either party can end that agreement at any time. If it's not working for whatever reason, we're free to go our separate ways.
Nope. We own the site and all other assets. Otherwise we would be doing SEO for you and would have to charge a lot more.
No. These websites are centered around the services that you provide—they are separate from any website that you own and use to represent your brand.
