Is This the #1 Key to Getting Quality Leads & Closing High Margin Building Contracts?

Why do so many clients choose bad builders?

It's maddening. You pour your heart into each project, and yet, in the vast digital marketplace, you feel invisible.

With misconceptions rampant, and project home builders churning out their cookie-cutter offerings via bait and switch tactics, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle.

Here’s the problem: Years ago, clients would call 3 builders out of the Yellow Pages, and meet with one before making their decision… 

The winds of change have ushered in a digitally-empowered clientele. Before they even think to pick up a phone or draft an email inquiry, prospective clients are hard at work, combing the internet for insights, answers, and assurance. This means…

Today Your Online Presence is Your Front-Line Salesperson, and Many Builders are Not Getting the Phone Call in the First Place

And that’s not just hearsay - according to the State of Residential Construction Industry Annual Report 2023, 40.4% of builders pin their primary struggle on one pivotal aspect: generating quality leads.

Delve deeper and the report reveals a startling oversight— while most builders indeed have a digital footprint, an overwhelming majority are not tapping into its vast potential.

Over half remain conspicuously silent on platforms like Facebook—a virtual goldmine for connecting with their audience.

Even more alarming, a striking 64.1% neglect to share articles or blogs.

Meanwhile, your prospective client is worrying about escalating costs, agonising over potential communication voids, and has nagging doubts about construction quality and timelines. Not to mention an often-intimidating fear about the perceived labyrinth that is the custom building process.

Are you online to answer their questions, and catapult yourself from a mere builder to a recognized industry authority?

Or are you invisible?

In the age where information reigns supreme, your expertise isn't solely displayed on the ground, but in the digital realm as well.

Every article not written, every post not shared, is a missed opportunity to not only generate leads but to cement your business as a leader in a highly competitive industry.

So, is your digital ambassador world-class, capturing the essence of your craft and delivering quality leads to your door? 

Or is it an apprentice, still learning the ropes and failing to make the right impression?

If you're ready to transform your digital struggles into opportunities, it's time to refine your message and elevate your online persona. 

Remember, in the vast sea of builders, it's not the loudest who gets heard, but the one whose message resonates.

The Battleground Has Shifted

While builders might pride themselves on an impressive closing rate once they're in direct conversation, the battle today lies it's in the silent assessments happening behind your prospect's computer screens. 

If a builder's online presence doesn't proactively squash these concerns, the digital era's empowered clients won't hesitate to drift towards competitors—whether they're flashier big names or lower quality options.

To truly succeed in today's market, builders must evolve their strategies. It's not just about selling a service anymore; it's about addressing concerns before they're voiced, demonstrating understanding, and positioning oneself as the go-to expert—all before that first point of direct contact. 

The good news is, there's a tried and tested strategy that can slice through the noise, spotlight your unique craftsmanship, and most importantly, preemptively address the myriad of client concerns: Content Marketing.

Yet how do you do content marketing the right way?

For starters, content marketing isn't just about telling your audience that you're the best in the business. 

It's about showing them, proving it with every blog post, article, video, or infographic you produce. 

It's a dialogue, a consistent communication channel that allows builders to not only showcase their expertise but also to resonate deeply with their audience's needs, wants, and fears.

And here's the clincher: the numbers undeniably back up its effectiveness.

According to the Content Marketing Institute (CMI)...

Content Marketing Rakes in a Whopping Three Times as Many Leads as Traditional Outbound Marketing (Yet Astonishingly, Costs 62% Less)

content-is-king-written-paper

HubSpot's research reveals an even more compelling story: businesses that wield the power of blogging see a staggering lead growth of 165%, while those that opt out? 

A comparatively meager 73%.

But let's ground these figures with a real-world example.

In the book "They Ask, You Answer", there's an example of a swimming pool company achieving a modest 10% closing rate. Yet…

Something Magical Happened When a Potential Buyer Consumed 30 or More Pieces of Their Content: The Conversion Rate Skyrocketed to an Astounding 80%

What's the secret? It's simple: content builds trust. It demonstrates authority, answers burning questions, and mitigates concerns. It ensures that by the time a prospect reaches out, they're not seeking a sales pitch; they're looking for a partnership. In the vast digital landscape, content doesn't just make selling easier; it transforms it into a mere formality.

To any custom home builder seeking to elevate their brand, cultivate trust, and usher in a new era of growth, content marketing isn't just an option—it's the cornerstone. Embrace it, and watch as the digital doors swing wide open.

Ryan Stannard is a case in point.

As the only builder to reach level 10 of APB’s professional builder levels, he’s not just another name; but a beacon of inspiration and living testament to the immense power of content marketing. 

This feat didn’t materialise out of sheer luck or coincidence. In the years before Ryan found APB, he was struggling…

Sound familiar?

While he credits APB’s WIPAA calculator and coaching with changing the way he runs the business and… 

  • Building roughly 25 new homes per year
  • Marking up his jobs to 30%, giving him the net profit required to be a sustainable building company in the industry. 

For years, while others treaded the traditional routes, Ryan embraced the content-centric approach with unwavering conviction. 

Every article, video, and blog post he produced was meticulously crafted to resonate with his audience, answer their concerns, and showcase his expertise.

The results speak for themselves. 

While many builders grapple with lead generation and brand trust, Ryan's digital presence is a magnet, drawing in prospects and converting them with an ease that makes the process seem almost magical. And now the same opportunity is available to you…
