Building Your Brand: HVAC Marketing
How many times do you hear “3x’s or 10x’s your leads”, “don’t pay until you close”, “the secret to online marketing”?
There are many ways to help with your company’s online marketing needs. However, the biggest mistake is renting leads instead of building your brand. When you rent overpriced or over sold leads from directories and other companies you are solidifying your dependence on them, and they can then reinvest more, making it more difficult for you to compete online. Think of it like paying rent vs mortgage on a home. When you stop paying rent the leads will dry completely, when you invest on your own marketing you are building a network of leads that works for you well into the future.
The easy answer from a business perspective is to build your brand and own your Exclusive HVAC Leads. Which can be overwhelming. Investing in your brand and marketing is not overly complicated. Yes you can do it yourself, but it is time consuming trust us. The job done right takes many checkboxes and processes across multiple platforms working together that give you the best results. In our experience helping roofers across the US and Canada there is never a secret sauce.
Own Your HVAC Leads
If 2020 taught us one thing it’s that things can change fast.. People are searching online, trusting reviews, and are comfortable being advertised online.

If you are here I don’t think we need to tell you how many people are shopping online these days.
Every market is different and comes with its own obstacles. Larger budgets may have room to experiment with various lead generating avenues. If you don’t have the extra marketing money to experiment then this guide will put you in the right mindset and path to save you time and money.
Where are you in the Online Marketing Process?
We categorize branding with company logo, business cards, yard signs, truck wraps, and message.
We are not going to name them all, but the most important for local HVAC companies would be Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
Your search engine and SEO leads are centered around your GMB (map pack) and company website.
Google is the best for guiding ready to buy customers to your website and funnels, while Facebook can compliment events (storms) and help establish authority in your industry.

Online HVAC Ads with Results
The Difference Between Google & Facebook Advertising
When it comes to deciding about where, if at all you want to spend ad dollars online. Google and Facebook are very different when it comes to quality and ready to buy leads. People go to Google to look for answers, products, and services. Nobody is on Facebook trying to buy a new roof or start a home project. When it comes to ready to buy or “high intent” customers there is no better place to look other than Google.
Google HVAC Advertising
Whether you are looking to go fast, or slowly get your toes wet with online advertising, you can’t beat Google’s results when it comes to immediate returns and full control. When you sign up for a Google Ads account they make it easy and seamless to think you are on the best path for success. Let’s just remember Google is a publicly traded company and loves to please their shareholders along with helping their users. The manual setup of your ads campaigns is where you make your money with Google roofing leads.
HVAC PPC Strategies for Facebook
There are many different ways to grow your brand awareness and outreach through social media platforms without paying for advertising. The key thing to remember when considering any social media platform for advertising is this is not where people go to be sold. If you come off as salesy then chances are you will spend a lot of ad dollars without results. Facebook is great for retargeting purposes, re-engaging audiences, and to inform your potential customers after storms.
Save yourself some money and don’t come off salesy on social media. Instead, helping guide, inform, and build trust and authority within your community online is where we find the best results. This audience is usually in a different stage of the sales process than on Google. They might not know they need your help yet, but you should show them why they do.
HVAC Marketing on YouTube
If you have already started a YouTube channel then you are ahead of the game. YouTube and video have quickly become the go to for information and sales. People stay more engaged with video, it’s just a fact. Nobody wants to feel like they are reading a “terms of service” policy.
Videos are a great way to connect with your audience and the best place to start is on YouTube. Showing your clients previous projects, customer testimonials, information, and guide’s through video is the most engaging route to relaying your company message. The more engaged the better it sticks.
Show them a roof replacement from start to finish with the processes, let them know signs of a damaged roof, or the red flags from fly by night contractors.
Data Driven HVAC SEO Strategies
What is "SEO" (Search Engine Optimization)
SEO refers to the organic traffic on your website. For example if you are a roofing contractor in Dallas Texas then you want your website found when your ideal customer searches “Roofing Dallas Tx” into Google. “Roofing contractor Dallas” is another buyer intent and specific keyword that you want to capitalize on. Dallas is one of the most competitive roofing markets in the US when it comes to SEO. We would expect organic results to really start taking place in about a years time if you starting from scratch in Dallas, but maybe you live in an area with low hanging fruit. Some SEO can see results as quick as 3 months depending on the amount of relative searches and competition.
Without SEO your company website is like a billboard on the wrong side of the moon. Optimizing your website to be found on Google for the right buyer intent keywords will increase organic traffic and quality leads. Make sure your billboard is seen by ideal customers searching online for your services.
We also categorize your map listing or “Google My Business” under SEO. Your map pack goes well with complimenting your website on the first page when someone is looking for your services. Your map pack listing is huge when it comes to local marketing. So make sure you utilize this free business resource if not anything else with your HVAC Marketing.
