Grand Rapids, Michigan (PRWEB) July 4, 2009
A new marketing service aims to make locally owned roofing services more "findable" on the Internet. Hometown Roofing Contractors connects professional roofing contractors with the homeowners and business owners that are using a search engine like Google to find a local roofing service on the Internet.
Hometown Roofing Contractors screens local roofing services in hometowns across America and promotes a limited number of roofers per service area. For each client, full-page advertisements are placed on Hometown's highly ranked national and local web sites. Clients are also marketed directly with search engines like Google, Yahoo, and MSN. Hometown's clients pay by the call, so they incur no advertising costs unless they receive phone calls from homeowners requesting an estimate.
Homeowners have quickly transitioned from paper phone books to searching on the Internet with Google for local roofing services. In 2008, there were an estimated 1,500,000 - 2,000,000 Internet searches for roofing contractors nationwide. And the number of searches is going up every year.
According to Hometown, for any residential roofing company to grow its business today, they need to be easily found on the Internet. Hometown's pay per call marketing campaigns are designed so that homeowners will find Hometown's local roofing client rather than other competitors in the market. These pay per call marketing campaigns are far more cost effective than more expensive advertising strategies like phone book advertising or "pay per click" internet yellow page web sites.

Prior to launching the roofing marketing service, Hometown Internet Marketing successfully launched marketing services for two other home service categories - roll off dumpster services hometowndumpsterrental.com and demolition contractors. Hometown's unique Internet marketing strategies have successfully generated phone leads and thousands of new local customers for hundreds of contractors across the country.
According to Dan Austin, owner of Austin Containers, "Hometown has revolutionized our business. We ask every new customer who calls how they got our name and at least 7 out 10 are saying 'the internet' or 'Google'. In 2008, our business was up over 20% from the previous year, even though the economy was terrible. We've also been able to cut back significantly on the size of our phone book ads and Yellowpages.com. Our total marketing costs are now down about $1200 a month, but business is still way up."
