The biggest problem is customer acquisition.

John Nowak says: “Our company prefers to build brand new homes. Currently almost all of our business is word of mouth. We spend zero money on marketing. We are small, about 2mm in annual sales on average.”

Me Too Websites

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.27.3″ _i=”1″ _address=”0.1.0.1″]

Nowak’s website is nice looking – if that sounds like faint praise then remember that around 50% of businesses don’t have a website, and some look like they were built in 1996. Sort of like a Model T next to a Tesla.

Although Nowak’s is more toward the Tesla end, and you can clearly see Nowak’s work is off the chart good, it’s still what I call a “me too” website.

See, if you swapped out his name for one of his competitors, there wouldn’t be a lie told.

Which means that there is nothing to grab the visitor.  Fortunately, only one of his competitors has started to think about how to change that.

Now Buyers

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.27.3″ _i=”3″ _address=”0.1.0.3″]

Out of every hundred people who visit your website, it’s a sad fact that around 30 will never buy from you. They move out of state, lose their job, never intended to in the first place.

Out of the 70 left, maybe 3 or 4 are Now Buyers. They might give you a call, if your website looks more like a Tesla than a Model T, if your phone number is right in front of them, if, if, if.

That leaves 66-67 people who might buy from you one day. These are the Tomorrow Buyers – people who are at the start or in the middle of their buying journey. They have an itch, but no idea of how to scratch it. They know how to scratch it, but not if they should, or if they should go to their doctor, or the emergency room, or just do it.

When that “one day” arrives, they’ll start their search again. And you hope they hit your website, again, and decide to give you a call. This time. Is there anything you could do to improve on hope?

Well, plenty! And Nowak already has an idea for this. He states: “Involving the builder from the beginning of a project is surely the best way to have your dream home custom designed and built or renovated!”

So let’s imagine there is a story behind this – there probably is. Nowak got called in too late and the result was chaos and overspend. Nowak knows how painful this is. Nowak can fix this. Now if Nowak writes – or gets someone to right and getting a writer is not so expensive – an ebook called “How to stop City Officials and Architects Squandering your Money and Get Twice the Luxury for Your Investment” and puts this right in the center of his home page, how many of the Tomorrow Buyers will download this?

He could ask prospects to pay with an email, or he could just rely on them keeping this book handy – with his phone number right at the front – until they are ready to go ahead.

This will start to make Nowak the contractor people go to first.

What More Could Nowak Do?

Nowak says he relies on word-of-mouth, so here are some ideas, because even word-of-mouth prospects will look at your website, or Google My Business, to look at what other people say about you, or just to get your phone number:

I’m making this sound easy – but often it seems so until you come to do it.
