Email marketing is a great first step and the perfect way to ease into the world of digital marketing. When you want to reach out to existing customers about your air quality assessments or services you’re providing, email marketing is a great tool. It’s important to compile a complete email list of past customers as well as those who have shown interest in HVAC services to contact. You can share valuable content about IAQ services and products via email and watch the leads roll in.
It’s important that the email marketing campaign is engaging, focused on one specific product or service. Make sure to end with a simple call-to-action. The call to action can be anything you want them to do, including: watching a video, reading an article, or responding to the email for further information or even a follow-up quote. This is a great way to get an estimate of how many people already in your company’s contacts would be interested in learning more about indoor air quality or pursuing indoor air quality control options. It’s also the easiest method to provide more personal updates to a large number of consumers. Make sure to create engaging emails and watch as the leads from emails help your business grow.
Social Media Marketing
Social media is the ideal marketing choice these days for professional needs. Don’t assume your HVAC and IAQ business won’t benefit from social media – this isn’t true. All businesses stand to benefit from a digital presence and active social media pages, including home service businesses. You should focus on starting with one social media outlet. Hone in on creating a solid message and personality for your business. Start a Facebook or LinkedIn page that introduces your company and explains the indoor air quality services your company offers. You can then use that page to show people how important it is with supporting posts and images.
Unless you choose to spend money on ads, social media marketing is free. This is another great advantage of social media. And, if you don’t mind spending some money or creating a budget for digital marketing, you can always use the Facebook Ads feature as well. You pay when people click on your company’s ad.
Instagram and Twitter are other social media forums where you can spread the word about your home services business. You can post work pictures on Instagram with things like before and after. Use Twitter to join in on conversations about indoor air quality. While the posts may not get tons of likes or engagement, it will help your business in the long run. This is because it gives consumers a better idea of your company and the services you offer.
Articles and Video Content
If you or your staff have the time, then we also suggest you write and/or record as much content as possible. Don’t simply do so with the goal of promoting business alone. You first want to provide value to your site visitors and social media followers. Educate and inspire them to call you when they want that IAQ upgrade or to learn more about why it’s important. The growing demand for indoor air quality means consumers are looking for informed HVAC contractors to ask questions and get solid answers and recommendations from. If you don’t have the time, you can instead hire a blogger or content creator to help build up the profiles. A writer that’s skilled in SEO keywords can also help drive additional traffic to your site, and therefore, produce more sales.
Using videos is a great way to get attention. Potential customers that watch a service or product video on a website are 64% more likely to buy the product or pursue the upgrade. Plus, having a video on your website landing page results in 80% more conversions statistically. Also, if you include video content in your email campaigns or newsletters, you double or even triple click through rates. Lastly, 94% of mobile users share videos with friends, creating engagement and more views. All of these are reasons to pursue different media content formats.
Finally–building a good website is absolutely essential. How new a website looks and how recently it’s been updated are not only obvious to site visitors but factors that potential customers care about and consider. A website with great content and an easy user interface serve as a 24/7 salesperson and lead generator. It’s helpful to consistently create new content and have a focused content strategy to help your website rank better in your local market as well. Make sure to fix broken links and improve pages based on data. By understanding what pages work and which ones don’t, you can reduce bounce rates and get more qualified leads.
