    Hi all,

    I'm thinking of opening up a HVAC network with different webpages for different cities then allow one HVAC company to be listed on the page for their city and take 10% of each job. The problem I have is I can't trust them enough to use their personal phone number because I can't track the calls. I need a method to track if a job came from my website.

    How the heck do I achieve that?

    Any bright ideas?

    We use twilio for this, we have one phone number with extensions and track when the number is called.

    Does the call come through to you or does the extension automatically ring through to their own number. Is the call recorded?

    Welcome to Black Hat World........................
    Home Page:
    Use google voice...

    a a phone number for each company...

    it forwards to them... and they answer right away...
    without extensions.... people don't like to press for extensions....


    but you should charge for LEADS instead of 10% of jobs...

    its so hard to prove that they got the job from your site.

    RECORDING THE CALLS MIGHT BE ILLIGAL IN SOME STATES...
    MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

    and even if you could RECORD the calls.... what are you going to do..
    sit day in and day out..... listening to the calls.....


    charging per lead is a better option.
    In my opinion.
