Why Your Home Improvement Company Needs To Market Online
Many home improvement businesses often wonder if online marketing is worth it. For the most part, I really do understand their concerns. They advertise in the Yellow Pages, or the Newspaper, or even the radio station and you see and hear your advertisement. It’s real, concrete and can often bring in some home improvement leads.
The Internet, on the other hand is constantly changing and evolving. And in today's society its changing faster each day. Really “why would some stranger want to know what I ate for dinner”? It’s hard to get your head wrapped around it. Yet Billions.... yes Billions of people each day are sharing what they ate on sites like Facebook, Instragram, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Often many clients tell me the second they take a stab home improvement marketing online, they are completely overwhelmed. Everything is constantly moving and changing. They are confused by PPC, SEO, SEM and every other acronym. Many people don't even know where to start.
