It's so important to pick up the phone. The geothermal HVAC industry is not widely understood, so that initial phone call is fundamental in establishing whether the prospect knows what we do etc. Great article, thanks for sharing.

As a small custom home builder - establishing quickly whether we are a good fit for a potential client is essential. I agree that picking up the phone is the best way to screen leads and get valuable marketing information - especially finding out where they heard about us. We are always evaluating our advertising and marketing channels - so I want to know where I should be focusing our efforts. Thanks for the article.
