If your website isn’t consistently generating leads for your business and helping you increase your customer base (and bottom line), you are missing out on the single most powerful way to grow your business. A professionally built website, optimized to rank well in Google and other search engines, can REALLY grow your business leaps and bounds. We see it all the time.
We’ve helped contractors like Gerry Signs of Asphalt Enterprises in Atlanta, rank #1 in Google for high traffic terms that help them rake in the leads and gain more customers.
Our website and ongoing optimization is invaluable to our business. 75% of the new calls we receive are a result of our web marketing efforts.”

Then there’s MCE Dirtworks in Cape Cod MA. Before we built their new website, they were seeing very little return on the small investment they had made. We built a highly functional website and optimized it for the search engines in their area. Today, the leads they are receiving are nearly double what they received in the past and they rank highly in all the major search engines. Here’s what they have to say about it.
“Well over half of my leads go through my website. I find that in my area a really nicely put together website sets you apart from your competition. We usually do around 280-300 estimates each year through the office. Well this year I’m up to 437 [in November]!!!… the SEO and great site are a huge part of that.” - Meika Wahlstrom, MCE Dirtworks
Choosing to market on the web is an investment, but the return on that investment is much greater than we see with traditional “old school” marketing. That’s why people like small business marketing guru John Jantsch (who wrote the best selling marketing book Duct Tape Marketing), says this:
“Your online presence is your key to success no matter what your business sells – no matter if all of your transactions are done face-to-face – no matter if you don’t yet see a way to get a return from your Facebook page – no matter if you’ve never bought an online ad…”
We know this is true. Contractors we help sometimes receive 10 to 15 – or more – leads per month over and above what they received before they began seriously marketing on the web. What would 10 to 15 additional leads per month do for your business?
To see that kind of return, it’s important to put your best foot forward when it comes to your website. Our web sites are thoughtfully designed and built to expose your pavement business in a professional and compelling way. They build trust and lead new customers to your door. Below are a few examples of recent Pavement Contractor websites from around the country.
Our custom built websites are designed entirely for your company. Take a look at our website feature list to learn more.
Once we complete your website, we will begin the process of optimizing it to rank well for the terms people use when searching for your services. In as little as a few months time you can begin reaping the rewards of your investment – while you continue to run your business like always.
We’ve been in the asphalt pavement industry for over 25 years. That’s the beauty of hiring Walkie Talkie. Because we know asphalt we don’t have to ask questions, we just do the work. You focus on what you do best, while we do what it takes to get you more leads on the web.
