Hello, you champions of the home service industry, the unsung heroes of everyday living! Welcome to 2023, where the world spins madly on, and everyone still needs a plumber when their toilet overflows at 2 am. Yes, you’re still very much in demand, and yes, we still can’t do your job.

Now, let’s be honest. Finding high-quality leads can feel like trying to locate a needle in a haystack. Only the haystack is on fire. And the needle is actually a unicorn. But hey, it’s 2023 and we’re on the verge of colonizing Mars, so we should be able to generate leads like we’re tossing confetti. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration. Still, it’s easier than you might think once you have the knowledge under your belt.

So, let’s dive in and take a look at the top 7 tactics you should be leveraging in 2023.

1. Networking: 

Remember the good old days of meeting people in person, shaking hands, and exchanging cards? Yeah, me neither. In this glorious digital age, you’ve got LinkedIn. So spruce up your profile, join relevant groups, and start connecting with potential clients. It’s just like real networking but without the weak coffee and stale donuts.

2. SEO:

 Google is like the cool kid in high school. You want to be noticed but don’t want to look too desperate. So, start with keyword research, optimize your website, and create a blog with relevant content. Because nothing says ‘I’m a credible business’ like a 1,000-word dissertation on the advantages of copper pipes.

3. Customer Reviews: 

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly People trust reviews like gospel. Bad reviews? Embrace them. Respond promptly and professionally. Show you care. Good reviews? Promote them like they’re the latest Marvel movie. Your potential leads will see them and think, “Wow, if they can fix Mrs. Johnson’s Victorian plumbing system, they can probably handle my sink.”

4. Social Media:

 Embrace the power of social media. Yes, even if it means learning what a “TikTok” is. Share before-and-after pictures, DIY tips, and videos of you in action. Just remember, it’s all fun and games until you’re viral for falling off a ladder.

5. Email Marketing: 

No, It’s Not Dead Despite rumors of its untimely death, email marketing is alive and kicking in 2023. Send your customers helpful tips, reminders for service, and the occasional discount code. Who doesn’t like feeling special with an “Only for You” 10% off in their inbox?
