Stop by to watch, chat with our editors and enter to win a contest for a three-night hotel stay for IRE 2023.
In the meantime, we bring you the last video in our current installment—and what a way to close it out by giving you an exclusive interview with Josey Parks of J. Wales & Cognitive Contractor.
In this video, Parks discusses why embracing lead generation is important for growing your business, the costs behind generating qualified leads, and how roofing and exterior professionals can gauge if their marketing campaigns are successful.
“One thing that I think is a problem with the industry as a whole is that everyone is really focused on leads where they really need to be focused on appointments. To really identify the best type of appointments I think it’s very important to first understand your best type of customer,” Parks explained to Locicero.
