Many of the HVAC contractors we work with are hesitant about using call tracking software.
Some contractors believe their clients have their phone numbers saved (unlikely), so they don’t need it. Plus, call tacking requires your business to have multiple phone numbers, which could deter someone from contacting you for service.
Ok, we get it.
However, any downside to call tracking is completely exceeded by the massive benefits of knowing what marketing channels are working for your HVAC business.
Call tracking records the number of phone calls you receive and where they originate from. This can help estimate future revenue and help determine your next step in the marketing strategy.
In order to track your phone calls, you will need to sign up with a call tracking service. We recommend using CallRail.
