He needs Leads not a job.....You might want to check out "ASPEN ROOFING" in Texas,supposed to be large ,national outfit
I do have a great way of generating new roofing jobs, and it's low cost & highly effective. The Old Fashioned way it to go out, and knock on doors. Get some free brochures from you vendor, and find a neighborhood you would like to work in. All these home were built at the same time, and need a roof at the same time....Clean Shirt & jeans, and SMILEWe have used Pay-Per-Click methods also through Bing, Yahoo, and Google. We face a lot of competition in Charlotte because roofers do not need any type of licensure for work under $30,000. Getting leads directly through ServiceMagic is beneficial because it gives us leads that are ready for a job and typically with leads through their service we will be competing with companies on an equal footing.
I'm not sure what the market is like in Chicago, but here generating leads is one of the more difficult things. Pay-Per-Click was spending hundreds of dollars and I am not even sure it generated a lead when it was active. We are still experimenting with different marketing techniques that are working.
