are some frequently asked questions you may have:
What can you do for my business?
Once we select
you, the contractor, to be a member of our network, we will help you
generate more referrals for your particular business trade within your
service area. We are one of the most cost effective marketing tactics
you can do for your business. You will define your service area and also
define your specific services. This way you will receive referrals
only in the areas you desire and only for services you have requested. While
we generate more business and sales leads for your company we help your
business grow a client base for future business too. Once you have
started producing jobs though our service you will get additional
referrals and positive word of mouth from those customers building your
do you generate referrals for my business?
The Home Improvement Network markets itself at local home shows, wine
festivals, art festival, county fairs, state fairs, chamber shows, boat
shows, summer festivals and other various local trade shows. We are
highly skilled and meticulous at generating home improvement sales leads
at local trade shows, festival and expos. Each homeowner that contacts
our service is screened by a customer service representative or sales
representative who is reasonable knowledgeable in home improvements.
We believe that personal face to face contact with the end consumer will
generate that best qualified referral for our membership contractors. As
a member, you will capitalize because we pre-qualify the homeowners for
you, resulting in the potential for more productive and better qualified
business referrals. This will help reduce some of your costly
marketing tactics that do not even produce guaranteed results.
This means you will spend less time prospecting for future jobs, and you
will be able to put more time and effort into other areas of your
business, or spend more time with your family.
How do you pre-qualify the homeowner names?
Improvement Network talks to each homeowner over the phone or in person.
We will ask them questions on the project size, when they are looking to
have the work done, are they ready for estimates now, do they have a
project budget and collect all of their contact information. If the
homeowners are looking to do the project in the near future and they are
willing to set-up an estimate with you now we consider this a good lead.
We do have a guarantee on the names we send to you too. If you have a
hard time reaching a referral we will call that homeowner on your behalf
and leave your name and number!
How do I receive the homeowner names?
Typically we send
the homeowner names to you by email or fax which includes an update of
your account balance and monthly sales lead count each time. At the same
time that you receive that homeowners information from us the homeowner
receives your contact information by email with a message for them to
give you a call now. This, of course, only happens when an email is
given to us from the homeowner.
How do I qualify to become a member?
currently have a very large network of local contractors that use our
service, and all of them have passed the same screening process that you
will go through. We only want to be associated with contractors
who have solid business ethics, strong commitment to customer service,
and high standards in the production of their work. We meet with
all of our membership contractors in person, have them fill out an application,
and insist they meet the criteria listed below:

pre-qualify each and every lead over the phone or in person at our
various trade shows. This results in higher quality leads, and
less time and money wasted by your business on unproductive advertising.
We get descriptions of the projects from the homeowners, as well as a
timetable for when they ideally would like to get started. Being a
smaller business, you deal with us directly with any problems or
concerns. You won't be receiving any impersonal email responses
when you contact our company. We believe being more personal with
both of our customers promotes a better business practice and better
