Had a call from a sales person that just couldn’t wait to get me more business then I could handle, that is if I paid $500 up front (and it is an annual fee) and average of $20 a lead.
And yes that for each lead that was passed to me and supposedly I would get a 80% close rate. Now if we assume this to be true and I got 2 call a week or
104 a year at $20 each equal 2,080 + 500= $2580 a year in cost. And with a a 80% close rate I would get 83 jobs (pick an average of) $300 a job for a revenue of $24,900. But after Home Advisor cost that would drop my revenue to $22,320. Home Advisor would get 10% of my revenue. And that is before tax and cost revenue that they get the 10% on.
Seem expensive to me. Home Advisor, sales person said to ask the NACHI guys, as the inspector at NACHI loved his service and a lot of the NACHI inspectors are using Home Advisor.
So I am asking if anyone out there is using the Home Advisor and if so what they think of the service. Also if any one else thinks the fees are high for the services?
