Many contractors are initially concerned about buying leads. Some think they are too expensive while others are worried that they will pay for junk calls.

Here are the 8 biggest advantages of buying leads from 33 Mile Radius.
8 Advantages of Buying Leads
Here are the eight biggest advantages of buying leads from 33 Mile Radius. While you should still take advantage of other avenues for generating leads, buying leads will supplement your business and help you stay ahead of your competitors.
1. Only Pay For Valid Leads
Whether you are running your own marketing, hire a marketing person, or contract with a marketing agency, you are paying for every call regardless of whether it was a good opportunity. With our lead generation services, you only pay for the lead if it is the homeowner or decision-maker calling about a service you are signed up for in an area where you are active. You never pay for fraudulent calls or wrong numbers.
2. Exclusive Leads that Convert
We produce some of the highest quality leads in the industry. Most of our contractors converting 70 to 90 percent of their valid leads. While you may pay for a few leads that didn’t work out, most of the leads you pay for turn into jobs. When you’re paying for your own leads, you pay for every single one of them. That includes all those telemarketer calls, renters, and real estate agents.
3. Easily Pause When Your Are Busy
Everyone needs time off occasionally, so we offer a pause feature that allows you to stop getting leads. You can pause your entire account or just specific service areas. Whether it’s a few hours to finish a job or a week to relax and unwind, you have complete control over your account.
4. Cancel At Any Time
There are no long-term contracts with our leads, so you can cancel at any time. Most marketing and advertising agencies require a long-term contract. Hiring a full-time marketing person means additional benefits and potentially needing to fire and re-hire that position. With our leads, if we’re not a good fit with your marketing strategy you can leave at any time.
5. Expert Marketing For a Flat Lead Rates

We provide an easy to use dashboard that allows you to track your calls, dispute leads, and measure your success. Our goal is to produce leads that convert for all of our contractors, but you can easily see how we perform for your business from your dashboard.
7. Works With or In Place of Your Own Marketing
Our leads work with and in place of your own marketing methods. Whether you’re running your own campaigns, have a full-time marketing person, or have a contract with a marketing company, our leads are just another way to get jobs. Because our leads are so flexible, you can use them to get more jobs during slower seasons or to keep you busy while you get your marketing campaigns set up.
8. Compete with Popular Chains and Franchises
Because we’re marketing services across the entire country, we’re able to compete head-to-head with major chains and franchises. This allows us to produce leads at a lower rate than if you are just competing with them in a specific area. If you’re partnered with one of these chains or franchises, you’re able to double down on the chance to get the lead at a cost-effective price.
Understanding Leads and Lead Generation
Every lead is an opportunity to land a job but does not guarantee that you will get the job. This is true of leads you generate through your own efforts as well as when buying them from a lead generation company. As long as you tack the source of each of your leads and measure the cost associated with generating them, you should be able to ensure all of your lead generation methods are profitable. If you aren’t measuring the cost and success of each of your leads, you cannot make an informed decision on the methods that are most successful for your business.
