Lead-Generating Tools: Construction Monitor Packs a Punch

You can pull permits based on contractors, developers, owners, builders, architects, tenants, and most important, area. You can take the data down to zip codes and even addresses.

The building permit data is updated weekly, and that’s become the bare minimum timeframe for new and reconfigured marketing development. As you know from experience, the world can change direction in under 30 days.

When homeowners apply for building permits, you can learn what they plan to do – and let them know how you can help – while they’re still considering contractors. (Or at the time contractors are considering subcontractors). You can organize the information in a way that works for you. Do you want to reinforce relationships? You can review every job you’ve investigated by the year, and it includes contact information.

As always, the go-getters get the jobs; they get the clients. One company may have all the bells and whistles available and still get squashed by a smaller company with fewer tools – but more aggression and desire.

If you must limit your tools for business development, choose the best and maximize their capabilities. We can point you in the right direction. If you want to generate leads for your home services company using building permit data, contact Construction Monitor.
