Digital marketing is massive.
As a general contractor and a small business, you need to generate leads.
But it might not be your specialty.
Peak One Builders specializes in custom home building and residential remodeling.
But with digital marketing, they needed well equipped experts to put their business on the frontline of the web.
By hiring our team, they were able to generate 31.5 leads per month and become a top brand in their niche of custom home building and remodeling.
Read on to see how we did it…
Mike, owner of general contractor firm, Peak One Builders, met with our marketing experts, to see how his business could generate online profitable leads while sticking to a fairly strict budget.
Peak One Builders specializes in custom home building and luxury home remodeling, so these would be the areas of focus for all marketing and lead generation efforts.
Mike didn't know what to expect really, especially with SEO, as this was his first real experience with any online lead generation strategies.
None of it really made a lot of sense to him.

Highly targeted SEO campaigns for specific affluent markets and neighborhoods brought a significant amount of new visitors to the company's site.
These campaigns, combined with the successful email marketing efforts mentioned above, allowed us to increase the amount of returning traffic to the site as well.
These actions laid the groundwork for Peak One Builders’ rapid growth in the span of only 2 years.

Let Us Take The Hard Work Out Of Internet Marketing
The strategic partnership between Peak One Builders and our team was incredibly mutually beneficial.
We were able to create an Unstoppable Lead Generation Machine that continued to generate lots of profitable custom home building and remodeling leads from the Internet.
With the proper groundwork set, we are well on the way to continuing to generate even more high-quality leads from the web in order to help keep Peak One’s pipeline full.
Some of the bigger highlights of our marketing campaign:
- Average of 19.33 leads generated per month in the first year
- Average of 31.5 leads per month in the second year
- Google 1st page rankings for over 1,000 targeted keywords
We helped Peak One Blinders to:
Peak One Builders did not have to worry about hiring multiple people to fill in-house positions to achieve these results.
Sifting through qualified candidates and establishing the desirable benchmarks would have consumed a massive amount of time.
They knew hiring our team would produce results without infringing on their time.
Additionally, they would have comfort in knowing that we would keep them updated with completely transparent marketing reports, conference calls and meetings to answer all of their questions throughout the process.
Going with a professional online lead generation company that specializes in helping blue-collar service businesses attract more customers from the internet was the best decision for Peak One Builders, as they were able to focus on delivering top quality work on their custom home building and home remodeling projects instead of worrying about where to find leads.
By partnering up with us, Peak One Builders achieved truly amazing results within the first two years.
The marketing plan that was deployed for the general contracting firm brought in a consistent flow of high-quality leads that turned into real, profitable custom home building and home remodeling projects all without having to rely on paid advertising strategies like Google Adwords or Facebook Ads. This is important because Peak One doesn't have to “buy” ad space on its target keywords since it already OWNS first-page placement organically.
Furthermore, Online Visibility Pros’ online marketing services cost a fraction of the price of hiring in-house staff to cover these responsibilities.
Multiple new employees with large salaries could easily bog down the future of a business.
But Peak One Builders made the intelligent move and hired a professional online lead generation company that specializes in implementing Internet marketing strategies for blue-collar service companies like custom home builders and home remodeling firms.
