Writing Great Ad Copy for Roofing Contractors

A successful digital marketing campaign gets your roofing company in front of people who need a new roof and compels them to contact you. One of the most effective ways to do that is through Pay Per Click (PPC) ads. At Roofing Contractor Marketing, we have an in-depth understanding of the roofing industry that helps us to craft the best ads for your business.

While understanding the industry is an important part of creating ads there is much more to it. A great ad will grab the audience’s attention. It should be short enough that the audience doesn’t get bored and long enough that it gets your message across. It has to compel the reader to take an action.

Creating the best ads requires testing and tweaking to determine which ads are performing the best and how to build on that. We have a team of experts creating and testing your ads to drive leads to your site. Check out some of the pro tips from SearchEngineLand that our experts use to make your digital marketing campaign great.

15 PPC pro tips for writing text ads

PPC Ads for Roofing companies

Get into the mind of the target audience

Before you start writing, you want to understand things from the target audience’s perspective. What problems are they experiencing? What are their pain points? How does this product or service solve their problems? What questions might they have about your product?

The answers to these questions will help direct your ad messaging.

Make it about your audience, not you

Following on the above point, make your ad copy about your audience, not you. In other words, you want to use (or imply) the word “you” more than “us” or “ours.”

For example, look at these two headlines:

  • “XYZ Helicopter Tours – Fly Over the Las Vegas Strip”
  • “XYZ Helicopter Tours – We Fly Over the Las Vegas Strip”

The difference is subtle, but ultimately the first one is better than the second because you’re making the searcher the subject (rather than yourself).

 

Include a call to action

Somewhere in your ad copy, you need to tell visitors what to do, such as “Buy now,” “View now,” “Shop now,” “Learn more” or “Request a quote.”

Make sure your call to action is strong and clear. Use an action verb and include any (legitimate) time constraints, e.g., “Shop today! Sale ends Monday.”

Your Reputation Precedes You

Roofing company owners have always been aware of how important having a good reputation is. From getting referrals to word-of-mouth of a job well done, it isn’t surprising that having a great reputation can help a business succeed while a bad reputation can cause it to fail. In today’s digital world, the importance of a good reputation is even more critical. Word-of-mouth has changed to checking reviews and is as simple as pulling out a cell phone. Your prospective clients are looking at your ratings on Google, Yelp, and Facebook. They are using those little gold stars to decide if your company is the one they trust.

Empowered consumers are searching for the best and worst brands before they buy

With mobile devices, people are searching in real time for negative experiences to make decisions.

The best experiences and the worst experiences are oftentimes so compelling that we can’t help but share them. That’s nothing new. We’ve all heard the saying that a happy customer tells one person while an unhappy customer tells anyone who will listen. It’s partly cathartic. It’s also a way of helping save others from similar experiences.

In a social, mobile, real-time world, shared experiences only become more potent. The question is, when someone picks up their mobile device in a micro-moment to search, on which side of those experiences does your brand reside? And how are your marketing efforts promoting positive experiences for customers to discover?

Mobile devices have created a new generation of super-empowered consumers. They’re connected, informed and sophisticated. These consumers are also more impatient, demanding and curious. They’re increasingly improving how to seek what’s best for them and also what to avoid. They have access to platforms where shared experiences can reach hundreds or even thousands of people, for better or for worse.

Google, for example, found that mobile searches that include “best” have grown over 80 percent in the last two years. At the same time, searches ending with “to avoid” have grown 1.5x in the same span, and searches for “worst” are also on the rise.

“Is ____ worth it,” another key mobile search phrase becoming increasingly popular, also grew over 80 percent. And Google isn’t the only place people search. YouTube has long been touted as a secondary search engine. For instance, users’ watch time of “does it work” videos grew by more than 11x in the past two years, according to Google.

Consumers are also seeking visual proof that the items they’re considering will meet their needs and that they will deliver desired value. And these searches span the spectrum of high- and low-consideration purchases in nearly every industry.

Roofing company owners work hard to provide superior customer service but that isn’t always enough. Happy clients don’t always leave reviews and sometimes you get clients that will be unhappy no matter what you do. Reputation Management from Roofing Contractor Marketing is one of the best ways to protect your business and keep your reputation safe.

How are you going to WIN the SEO Race in 2018?

Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is a race that never really ends. There are 1000s of websites all competing for the top spots on the first page of the Google’s search results. That kind of competition means that there is a lot of work to get to those top spots and once you get there you still have to fight off all of the others who would gladly take your place. So the race continues on.

Whether you have made it to the top and want to stay there or you are working to move your way up the SERPs you NEED to have an SEO plan for 2018.

3 ways to kick-start your SEO in 2018

The new year is a great time to take a step back and review your campaigns to see where you can make improvements. Columnist Casie Gillette shares her ideas for starting off 2018 right with SEO.

Win the SEO Race in 2018

1. Audit your site

I’ll be the first to admit that it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day. Between the daily tasks at hand, the pressure to hit goals and the ongoing updates from search engines making life difficult, it can be hard to step back and get a holistic view of your site and how it’s performing.

At KoMarketing, we start every new program with a full-scale technical audit, followed by a keyword roadmap and content audit. It ensures we not only understand the landscape but also get our clients’ sites in the best shape possible, as soon as possible.

But what happens when you’ve been working with a client for two or three years? What happens when hundreds of changes have been made, messaging has shifted and company goals have evolved?

While we try to perform quarterly technical audits, they aren’t always as in-depth as that first time. In addition, after a few years of writing and adding new content to the site, that initial content audit likely no longer applies.

Start your year off right by giving your site a full audit, evaluating everything from technical issues to content to competitor performance.

2. Revisit your keywords & messaging

Were new features added in the past year? Were brand guidelines put into place? Did the competitive landscape change a bit? Whatever the case may be, it’s important to revisit your overall messaging to ensure your target keywords still make sense and you aren’t missing any major opportunities.

Take for example this scenario: A few years ago, I had a client in the logistics space who was targeting “shipping” terms. Our content was geared toward shipping, our SEO efforts were geared toward shipping, and overall, performance on the terms was pretty great.

Fast-forward to the following year, when those terms started driving much less traffic and leads. Why? The landscape had shifted toward “transportation.” Searches were up, the types of results had changed, and more competitors had started using the term.

SEO is ALWAYS Changing. Is your roofing company ready for 2018?

Don’t let your roofing company fall behind in 2018. The internet is an ever-changing beast and in order to harness its power successfully your business needs to be prepared to adapt to any changes that come your way this year. The need for SEO or Search Engine Optimization isn’t going to change, but how your business can rise to the top of the SERP page will. Check out some of the predicted SEO changes to be on the lookout for in 2018 from MarketingLand.com below.

8 game-changing SEO trends that will dominate 2018

With over 200 factors in Google’s algorithm, SEO is a complex science. But it’s not how much you need to know that makes it really challenging — it’s the ever-changing nature of the rules of the game.

As search engines strive to improve the quality of search results, some ranking factors shift shapes, others fall into oblivion, and completely new ones arise out of nowhere. To help you stay ahead of the game in 2018, here’s a list of the most prominent trends that are gaining momentum, with tips on how you can prepare for each.

1. The rise of SERP features

Are you assuming a #1 organic ranking is the way to get as much traffic as possible? Think again. Increasingly, SERP features (local packs, Knowledge panels, featured snippets and so on) are stealing searchers’ attention and clicks from organic listings.

And it’s only fair if you consider the evolution the Google SERP has been through. It has gone all the way from “10 blue links”…

Start building your digital presence now

Building a Complete Digital Presence from Scratch

One of the first steps to starting a roofing company is developing your digital presence. How your business is represented on the internet can be a huge determining factor in the success or failure of your business. A strong online identity can attract new clients and drive leads to your business while a weak presence can leave your roofing company unnoticed and losing leads.

Building a robust digital presence isn’t something that happens overnight. It takes time and planning, to execute your complete digital marketing strategy. While there’s no silver bullet to guarantee success, you can get started with a few things to start building your digital presence.

Three ways to use a domain name for business today

Start building your digital presence now

Build your online identity with a domain name

Registering a domain name is one of the first steps to starting a new business. That’s because whatever name is chosen will represent the business’s space on the internet — and, possibly, a customer’s first impression of the company.

But once you have that domain name, what do you do? Don’t stress over building an online space. Start using a domain name right away. Here are three ways to do it.

Set up a company-branded email address

The web address can also be used as an email address. A company-branded email address can give you and your employees a more professional-looking branded channel for communication with customers, as well as free marketing for your company. In a 2015 survey, 74 percent of consumers said they would trust a company-branded email address more than a free email address. It’s easy and cost-effective to set up, too. The provider you use to register your domain name can most likely help you set up your email address quickly and inexpensively.
