JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Web.com Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:WWWW), a leading provider of Internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, today announced that it is now offering the value-added service of appointment setting between its contractor members and homeowners looking for local remodeling contractors.
Homeowners submit estimate requests for various home improvement projects such as kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, roofing or siding through more than 200 owned and operated home service websites and partner channels. Service requests are then filtered to an internal appointment setting team who matches the request with an eligible member contractor in that homeowner's local area.
Contractors who participate provide the times and days they prefer to meet with homeowners to provide estimates. Web.com then reaches out to homeowners to get additional details about the project and set an appointment on behalf of the contractor. A contractor also has the ability to select appointments in which the homeowner has specified a time and date they would like to meet with contractors that do not otherwise fit in the contractor's fixed schedule.
"The appointments that Web.com has set up for me have been a success," said John Miller of New Heights Construction in Queens, New York. "The service has saved me hours of voice tag and schedule shuffling between myself, my crews and potential new clients, leaving time to focus on providing estimates and completing jobs."
Web.com provides remodeling contractors with an attractive alternative to traditional lead generation marketing avenues such as yellow page and print advertising, allowing contractors to access the growing number of homeowners using the Internet to hire and purchase home improvement goods and services.
