Why Do Some Contractors Receive A Steady Stream of New Leads Each Month While Others Struggle to
Break Free from the Feast-or-Famine Cycle?
A Message from
If you’ve struggled to use the internet to generate leads, if you’ve tried advertising in popular online directories, if you’ve spent thousands of dollars on SEO, pay per click, flyers, and social media, if you’ve talked to marketing “experts” who promised the moon but failed to deliver, then you’re about to find the tools you’ve been waiting for since you opened your business.
Now, I understand that this may sound like “hype.”
In fact, it may remind you of other sales pitches you’ve heard over the years. But I encourage you to read this page all the way to the end if you’re serious about taking your business to the next level. Your potential to expand is limitless using just a few simple tools to help you out.
Back to Your Current Reality
I want you to think about all the challenges you’re facing in your business today.
Then there’s the stress and uncertainty you deal with daily, not to mention the thoughts that cause you to question if you’re even doing the right thing:
• “Am I going to have enough cash flow next month to pay the bills?”
• “What am I doing to prepare for the winter slowdown?”
• “The world is changing so fast… how do I even keep up?”
And you may start to wonder if it’s all your fault; …is something wrong with you?
Well, I’m here to tell you that:
The Reason You Struggle to Get Leads Isn’t Because Something’s Wrong With You…
No. It has more to do with the fact the world has changed. More specifically, the customers you’re trying to reach have changed. They’ve gone digital.
As you know, your customers no longer call contractors listed in the Yellow Pages. Instead, they pull out their phones and turn to Google.
And if you’re like most contractors we work with you already know this. So, the problem isn’t that you don’t know your customers have gone digital… the problem, the real issue, is you’ve tried to use the internet to generate business before… but it always feels like a losing battle.
Of course, they all talk a good talk and they get you excited, but that excitement quickly disappears as you wonder month and after month, Is this really worth it?
Yet somehow, they talk you off the ledge. And you agree to wait a little longer. You tell yourself, “This just takes time. It’ll payoff down the road.”
The reason why 90% of contractors fail to get results with online marketing is that they approach it all wrong. They think they “just need to do something.”
So, when the next internet marketing salesman calls in, they decide to sign up.
The bad part is most contractors don’t know what they’re really signing up for. They pay thousands of dollars for a new website that looks nice but doesn’t produce any leads…
“Maybe you should try social media,” some young 20-something millennial says.
But then, in order to attract traffic to your Facebook (or the social media of choice – G+, Yelp, etc.) you either need to be active all the time, or you need to create, write copy for, and pay for ads.
Thankfully there’s an easier and better way…
Finally… A Solution Built Specifically For Contractors
My name is Cecelia DeLaRosa and I’m the Director of American Contractors Organization. For over 15 years I’ve been focused on helping contractors solve their most pressing problems… everything from insurance requirements to helping contractors implement OSHA-compliant safety programs.
And several years ago, I saw a big need that I didn’t feel was being properly met by existing services. I watched as several of these “consumer review” websites gained popularity by promising to connect contractors with homeowners… for a “small fee.”
I won’t mention any names but I’m sure you’re very familiar with these sites that charge outrageous sums of money for leads.
I started thinking there’s got to be a better way.
So, I decided to take a leap of faith, and started working on a solution; a platform that connects all your marketing efforts together, and has built-in SEO to help brand your business.
And the best part…, you’ll never have to pay for leads again!
What is this powerful tool?
A Directory Where You Cannot Game the System
The Directory for Contractors™ is an innovative online platform where homeowners can find quality, licensed contractors and request bids directly from them without paying any fees.
Unlike popular review websites, there is no way to “game” the system by paying more to show up higher in search results (this is one of the biggest reasons why consumers have lost faith in “consumer review” websites).
Instead we decided to build a directory that truly showcases your work while also building trust with homeowners.
As you know, homeowners want to hire contractors who are reliable, reputable, professional and experienced. And they look for these qualities in contractors when they start doing their research online.

We help you build that foundation of trust and create those great first impressions by inviting homeowners to go directly to your profile, browse through your photo gallery, watch videos displaying your work, and connect with you on social media.
Oh, did I mention, we’re not in the “lead sales” business. That would be like the other services out there that promise you an exclusive offer at a premium price, and then turn around and make the same offer to the next contractor. It’s not really exclusive any more, just expensive.
Here’s How Our Directory Works:
You might assume that a “contractor” is a contractor because they show up with a truck and some tools. However, that doesn’t mean you have a trusted contractor. Until you have a contractor that has passed a background verification and is properly licensed and insured, assume nothing.
This directory was created to help everyone hire vetted contractors and avoid costly mistakes and misunderstandings in dealing with your contractor by not checking if they’re properly insured and have cleared a background check. While some listing services may perform a background verification, they fall short in two areas:
a) Their lack of knowledge in the specific industry and
b) The verification lacks continuity
At Directory for Contractors, we verify the background of every contractor listed with us; not just at the time of registration, but every year, as long as they have a listing with us. So, if is something changes in a contractors’ background, we want you to know.
More Than Just A Directory (Get These 7 Perks)!
In addition to being the “most trusted” directory for homeowners, contractors also get these 7 perks when they join. Including:
• Access to your Photo and Video Library
• Ability to integrate blog posts with your Directory Listing
• Ability to create coupons and special offers
• Email support from one of our team members
• A custom QR Code that will link to your Directory Reviews!

I don’t use the word “investment” lightly. But I truly believe that in business there are “costs” and “investments.” And they’re different. For something to truly be an investment it should generate a return.
In other words, you should be able to look back at the end of the year and see how many leads and sales came as a result of your “investment.” If you’re not able to do that, then your advertising is a cost not an investment.
So, how much does it cost?
Well, first off, if we were pricing this to be “competitive” with some of the other consumer review sites we were told we should charge around $400/month…
However, I know that many of those review sites don’t have a high retention rate so they HAVE to charge a lot to be profitable.
But we believe in this so much that we know if you sign up you’re going to renew for many years to come… So as a business owner I’m looking at the lifetime value of my customers.
This is why I’m willing to offer a crazy low price of only $995/year!
I challenge you to find another online service that offers so much for contractors for a small investment.
