Short Term

A couple of bad reviews with no responses can close the door to a substantial amount of business. Staying on top of reviews (good and bad) will help set your business apart from the rest. Because search engines like Google use reviews in their ranking algorithm, it’s critical for both short and long-term success to strive for positive reviews from your customers. To be competitive online, your plumbing company needs, at minimum, five great reviews on Google.

High

Any company can talk about how amazing they are on their website, but it’s what their customers have to say that really counts. Real reviews on trusted sites like Google, Yelp or Angie’s List can go a long way in building trust and generating business. With HLM’s review management technology, and only 15 minutes a day, your office admin can be the difference in winning online.

Visibility for your services is key to growing your business online. Our SEO strategies make sure your company reaches potential customers when, where, and on how they are searching for your service.

Plumbing is a highly competitive industry, especially in larger cities. Making sure your business shows up in search results for phrases like ‘Plumber near me’, or ‘emergency plumber’ is key to getting more business. Without an effective SEO strategy it would be nearly impossible to compete online. Our SEO strategy is not just about keywords targeting plumbing services, it’s also about consistent business listings across a multitude of directories like Google My Business and Yelp; it’s about backlinking; and it’s about optimizing your relevant content for geo-targets that make sense for your specific business and location. And it’s about continued maintenance, adjustments, and monitoring your competition.

An effective SEO strategy for plumbers means focusing on getting visibility for your services in your community and then moving out to whatever a realistic commute for your trucks would be. Once you’ve earned the top positions in search results and established a history with search engines, it will be difficult for new plumbers or those without an SEO strategy to outrank you.

Long Term

Fast-track your business to the top of search results on Google, Bing, and Yahoo with a Paid Search strategy from HLM. We maximize your ad spend by following the data and adjusting the ad content on you display ads, PPC, and remarketing to get you more qualified leads at the lowest cost-per-click.

Paid Search provides a way to cover 100% of the possible keywords being searched in your selected geography. Unlike SEO, which cannot always cover every possible combination of words in the English language (or other languages!), Paid Search is configurable to capture as wide or narrow of a target audience as makes sense for your business, service, or offer.

Paid Search program can include unique features like click-to-call buttons, incentive callouts, review ratings, and more, help make our Paid Search more effective than SEO alone. We design them to call attention to paid ads over organic search results - and we usually achieve this goal with great messaging and a compelling offer. In many cases, our conversions occur without even going to the landing page or website.

Also unlike SEO, paid search can specify the geographies you would like your practice visible in. This is the only channel that can guarantee visibility outside your local geography. This makes the platform perfect for areas where specific pockets of a metropolitan area that lack heavy competition or rural areas where it is not uncommon for plumbers to drive 50+ miles for a service call. It’s also ideal for plumbing businesses that do not operate out of a brick and mortar.

Short Term

Paid Search for plumbers can generate pre-qualified traffic from search engines like right away. It’s extremely easy to get up and running with only a landing page. With paid search, you can be the first result for the geographic locations you service if your ad make it - all with 100% control of your spend. Even if your marketing budget is relatively limited, display ads and PPC give you the ability to gain exposure on as little as $5 a day (though that may not yield the best results).

Medium

Calculating the return on investment for Paid Search is easier than SEO, as platforms like Google Ads are completely transparent on what campaigns, keywords, and geographies are performing the best for your plumbing business.

Because every interaction with potential clients costs money, expert optimization of your Paid Search campaigns from HLM is an absolute must. Many plumbing businesses have tried to run their own campaigns, only to find out it’s a lot of work and making mistakes can cost you a lot of money. Having the experts at HLM to consistently monitor, adjust, and test strategies will provide you the most visibility at the lowest possible cost per interaction.

Facebook Adsfor Plumbing

Get instant visibility on Facebook with Paid Ads on Facebook. If you have an established network of followers or a service or product that people are talking about, remarketing ads on Facebook and boosted posts can put your message in front of the conversation.

Most plumbing searches are for 'emergency plumber' and in many of those cases, the plumbing companies showing up first in search results will get the business. That's not to say that there are several homeowners that need non-emergency plumbing services. For those who are researching trusted local plumbing companies, Facebook Ads could be a good way to reach them. Very likely, those searches will land on a page of your website that addresses whatever their search was, such as new kitchen sink installation. For this visitor, if they use Facebook, it is likely they will go to their community and ask for a recommendation. With a Facebook remarketing campaign from High Level Marketing, the moment that visitor leaves your site and goes to Facebook, a remarketing ad will pop up on their screen, re-engage them, and hopefully, lead them back to your website. This strategy gives you a second chance to entice a visitor into requesting a quote.

Long Term

Facebook Ad campaigns can be brand a building play or designed for conversion. If you are an established company with a great reputation, this is one more opportunity to engage people who have shown interest in your company or service. The more visible you are to those people, when they do need a plumber, they will already be familiar with your brand and your company will likely be the one they call first. 

Medium

Familiarity with your brand creates a higher likelihood that potential plumbing customers will choose you over your competitors. For some of our plumbers using Facebook Ads to get more leads, we've seen a significant difference in cost per lead when compared to Paid Search. However, the effectiveness of this social media marketing strategy is largely dependent upon the potential customer hitting your website first. So in terms of visibility and potential volume of leads, it’s much less effective for plumbing lead generation than Paid Search.

Be top of mind when someone needs your service. Our Social Media Management keeps your company active on the sites where sharing experiences, recommending local businesses, and sharing information is welcomed.

Social media can convey personality - a huge component of converting potential prospects into paying customers. People want to know who will be coming to their house, so having a Facebook page or LinkedIn page can be used to promote your team and the excellent service they provide. Collecting reviews, comments, and engaging customers is all good brand building. And with a great brand, your customers are more likely to recommend your plumbing business and call you again for future work. Social media is typically a tool to increase a customer’s lifetime value rather than a tool used for lead generation.

There is a lot of value in continually engaging your customers. Offering tips for keeping your plumbing operational or sending out seasonal reminders for snaking drains or frozen pipe prevention means your fans will spread the word about how great you are. This type of networking on LinkedIn or on Facebook can help ensure you’re top of mind when people need your services.

Social Media ROI is difficult to calculate and depends on what goals you are hoping to achieve. Typical ROI is determined by shares, likes, and recommendations. But you can also calculate leads from giveaways, promotions, and event participation. Considering what ROI means to you is key in selecting social media management as a channel you would like to pursue with HLM.
