Need to hire a contractor for home improvement? How do you make sure you hire someone with a good reputation that can be trusted?
Again, the role of client reviews comes indispensable.
However, this industry has something specific that we do not encounter in other industries.
Home improvement businesses/contractors can use our services to monitor new tasks/assignments posted by homeowners, so they can decide where to submit their bids.
Let's see how this works.
Who should use this type of analysis?
Basically, whoever is a part of the home improvement industry can benefit from such analysis. However, JLA usually performs this analysis for the following clients:
- Home improvement businesses/contractors – to monitor leads
- Review aggregator sites – JustLikeAPI acts as a data source for many such sites
- Digital agencies - providing services for their clients in this industry
As you can see, everyone who works in this industry can make use of review monitoring. Regardless of whether you're a home improvement business, review aggregator site, or an agency, reviews will be useful for future improvements.
What websites can be used for review collection?
Practically, any website / social network where a home improvement firm has its profile. However, in most cases, we do it on highly specialized home improvement platforms, like HomeAdvisor and Houzz.
JLA is currently able to scrape reviews from these and many other platforms. Some of the existing platforms are already related to the home improvement industry, but if you express the need to scrape something else, there would be no problem.
What fields can be collected for review analysis?
JLA can capture any piece of data shown in the browser, but of course, every industry has its own specifics. When it comes to home improvement, clients are usually requesting the following ones:
- Lead budget
- Total number of reviews
- Average review score
- Lead location
- Review author-name
- Review date
- Lead timelines
- Individual review score
- Review title
- Review body
- Lead contact details
These fields can of course be arranged according to your needs. Therefore, the information that you'll receive can be totally customizable.
The list of platforms that we’re covering is getting bigger every day, so we invite you to check it out. We're also providing a 14-day free trial so we believe you’ll have enough time to test whether JLA fulfills your needs.
