Adding these videos to the company website was a fantastic marketing tactic to help build trust with potential clients in order to convert leads at a higher rate.

Let Online Visibility Pros help you work smarter, not harder
The OVP team was able to create an unstoppable lead generation machine for Peak One that continued to generate lots of profitable custom home building and remodeling leads from the Internet.
The Home Builder Saved Time
Peak One didn’t 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 partnering with Online Visibility Pros 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 home 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.
And Saved Money
By partnering with OVP, Peak One achieved truly amazing results within the first two years.
The marketing plan that was deployed for Peak One brought in a consistent flow of high-quality leads (estimate requests) that turned into very profitable custom home building and home remodeling projects all without having to rely on paid advertising strategies like Google Ads or Facebook Ads.
This is important because Peak One didn’t have to “buy” ad space on its target keywords to generate these leads since they already OWNED first-page placement organically on so many targeted keywords from their SEO investment.
Furthermore, OVP’s 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 smart move and partnered with a professional online lead generation company that specializes in implementing Internet marketing strategies for home service companies.
