HomeAdvisor vs. Prospect Genius

Prospect Genius and HomeAdvisor both work to send more customers to your business. But the similarities end there. HomeAdvisor forces you to play by their rules, while Prospect Genius helps you play by your own rules.   Get Your Free Assessment

How HomeAdvisor Works

HomeAdvisor is an online lead sharing directory. Prospective customers use HomeAdvisor to find local service companies: when they enter a service request, the lead is shared with several area companies that offer similar services. As a result, HomeAdvisor forces you into direct competition with other local businesses for every lead.

How Prospect Genius Works

Prospect Genius offers customizable, personalized online marketing focused on you. Instead of making you compete for each lead, we focus on building your web presence so your company can be found directly. We connect prospective customers straight to you without getting in the way.

HomeAdvisor

Prospect Genius

  1. You pay for every lead sent, regardless of quality or whether you close the deal.
  • No charge per call. Just a flat rate per month.
  1. Customer leads are sent to you and several competitors. We’ve frequently heard that leads go to four other companies. That means you only have a 1 in 5 chance to secure each job.
  • Customer leads sent ONLY to you.
  1. One-size-fits-all lead-sharing directory.
  • Options for different needs, including SEO, PPC, social, directories, and more.

Stop Letting HomeAdvisor Call the Shots

The majority of small business owners report starting their company to be their own boss. But if you’re asking, “How high?” when HomeAdvisor says, “Jump,” you’re not enjoying the freedom that could come from running your own business. Instead, you’re working your tail off to capture leads sent from HomeAdvisor, and probably barely turning a profit. At the end of the day, your effort ends up improving their brand, and you get all the hassles of working for yourself but none of the benefits. So why not try something new? Online marketing builds your brand and your web presence, attracting new customers without the misery of pay-per-lead. Prospect Genius can help with everything from launching a customized, search-engine-optimized website to managing your social media presence to PPC advertising. We are here to make the phone ring—and unlike with HomeAdvisor, you’ll get live, direct leads that come only to you. A robust web presence can make a huge difference for your company!
