Having been in the home repair and remodeling business since 2000, we have seen a multitude of marketing methods introduced and fade away over the years. We've also tried other programs that are similar to Porch.com, but they fall short in several areas making them undesirable for our purposes as they lack a consistent return on the investment put into them. With Porch.com, we're able to budget a set amount month after month with no surprises. This is particularly important to smaller companies just getting off the ground. When you know what to expect, you know how to prepare; no sudden withdrawals from your bank account for leads you didn't even get awarded.
Additionally, Porch.com shows interest in their professionals and their success and continues to check in with you and offer support long after your initial sign up. If I have an issue, I can make a phone call and get an answer versus other services where I had to send an email and wait three days for a response - I'm trying to run a business here. Three days is an eternity in my world.
With each lead, I have the option to provide feedback to Porch.com to let them know if the lead had good information and where I'm at in the process. This helps them understand how my company is interacting with their leads and allows them to further hone their processes to better serve both me and future customers.
As for how many leads to expect? Admittedly, the first two weeks were slow. After that, the calls have been fairly steady and are picking up speed. Having a website is a definite plus and helps the customer to learn more about you before you show up on their doorstep to offer an estimate. Thus far, we are very happy with the quality of the leads, the lead flow and the pro support of Porch.com and would happily recommend them.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
