The “Marketing for Pool Builders” Team
Who We Are…
We specialize in serving the marketing, advertising and business growth needs of the swimming pool construction industry. We work exclusively with swimming pool builders and high-end landscape professionals throughout North America and beyond. Meet Our People. Our marketing program includes website design and management , organic and paid lead generation services such as SEO and PPC, sales training, copywriting and graphic design.
Who We Work With…
We specifically look for high-integrity, customer-centric pool builders who build a great product, but aren’t getting all the business or profit they want. If you find yourself frequently competing on price, or bogged down by the hassles of managing your own marketing, then you definitely should take a look at what our system does for you.
On the other hand, if you’ve got a track record of unhappy customers, unfinished pools or bankruptcies, then we’re probably not right for each other. We’re not interested in using marketing to cover up gross deficiencies in a company’s products or services. It’s too hard, it’s not honest, and it won’t work in the long run anyway.
Due to the competitive nature of the market, we normally work with just a few pool builders in any particular region. In larger markets, we may sign an “exclusive agreement” with a particular client, which means we won’t work with any other builders in that marketplace.
