Features and Instructions on Free Roof Replacement Calculator Embed (Video)
We’ll touch on all the new features below in this post. However, we’ve created a quick video showcasing all the new features of the V2 embed.
First let’s showcase some of the new changes to our dashboard. Our focus has always been mobile first on our website. But our data showed that contractors were logging into the dashboard on their desktops. So we pivoted and changed our dashboard to include a desktop view. Here are new features:
Leads Via Email Toggle
We’ve added a toggle to enable and disable email leads. Why? Many contractors are using a Customer Relationship Management software or (CRM). With out Zapier integration the leads can go directly into their CRM and email no longer becomes necessary.
Soon paid contractors on
shared plans and exclusive plans will have the ability to get leads sent directly to their cell phone. Leading to almost instant communication with homeowners looking to get a roof replacement quote.
Shared leads were discontinued to comply with TCPA and to improve customer experience as negative feedback was provided regarding 3 contractors contacting homeowners.
Enhanced Service Areas
Our first version was by county only. We received feedback from contractors that they prefer to pick service areas by zip code. So, we built it. Choose by county, city, and individual zip codes.
Enhanced Lead List
We provide you a complete list of all the leads you have received. See the following information for each lead.
- Lead creation date
- Roof replacement estimate amount
- Homeowner name
- Homeowner phone
- Homeowner email
- Homeowner address
- Homeowner roof size
- Homeowners request for material type (roofing material)
- The source of the lead. Either from Instant Roofer or your embedded calculator.
- The status of the lead delivery.
