Are Phone Leads or Form Leads Better for Mold Removal?

Before we dive too deep into what you can expect when buying mold removal leads from Service Direct, it’s important to discuss the various types of leads you might encounter. 

As with most things in online marketing, not all leads are created equal, and not all lead types will be a good fit for every business. Once you have a grasp on the different types of leads offered and the benefits of each, you can look at your company’s capacity and determine which leads you want to buy. 

Pay Per Call Leads

At Service Direct, we primarily use pay per call lead generation to drive new customers to our mold removal clients. With these leads, you are connected with someone in your area seeking mold removal services in real time so that you can speak directly with them about their needs. 

We do this using targeted ads that are designed to reach out to customers who are primed to book your services. This way, all you have to worry about is closing the deal. One of the best parts about PPCall leads? Customers who pick up the phone to call for mold removal services are already more likely to be ready to book. 

With our phone leads, you won’t be competing with any other mold removal company in your area for that lead. In other words, we offer exclusive leads to boost your chances of booking the job rather than expecting you to battle it out with other mold remediation companies in the area.

Phone leads tend to be more expensive, largely because they are more difficult to generate, but they also tend to have a much higher ROI because a customer who picks up the phone is more likely to convert. 

Form Leads

The other type of leads available to you are called form leads. These are leads where a potential customer submits a form online with information such as their contact info, service needs, and more. These submission boxes can be found on your website, social media, and more. 


Form leads can be beneficial in capturing information from clients who may not be desperate enough to pick up the phone but still need your mold removal services, as well as people who simply don’t like to reach out via phone call (we’re looking at you, Gen Z). 

However, form leads tend to have lower conversion rates than PPCall leads because you aren’t communicating with a customer in real-time, and that customer may have less incentive to book your services. 


While both form leads and PPCall leads have their benefits, it’s important that you look at your budget and capacity for booking jobs when determining which route you want to take. Some companies like Service Direct may even offer both types of leads!

Choosing the Right Cost per Lead for Your Mold Removal Business

The short and sweet answer is, it’s up to you! Service Direct gives mold removal companies the ability to set their own cost per lead (CPL) to a price they’re comfortable with.

Why do we do this? It comes down to one simple realization: the value of a lead relies largely on how well the company that gets the lead can turn it into a paying job.

If Company A was able to transform a set of 10 quality leads into 8 paid jobs, it’s fair to say those leads were pretty high-value. Now, imagine those same leads were instead delivered to Company B, who converted only 4 into paying jobs. All that changed was the company’s ability to convert, and the value of those leads plummeted. 

This is what we mean when we say the actual value of our leads is based on how well you can convert them. By giving you the ability to set your own CPL, we’re simply taking this concept one step further. Ask yourself: How much value do I think I’m capable of extracting from an incoming lead?

You’ll also need to consider your competition. Service Direct’s leads are exclusive, but you’re still bidding against local competitors, who are also be basing their CPL on how valuable they consider leads to be. So, while you could set your CPL as low as possible, your competitors probably place a higher value on leads, which translates to a higher CPL. Ultimately, this would lead to fewer leads coming to your business. 

Setting a competitive and sustainable CPL is crucial to success with Service Direct. That’s why we don’t just let you set your own CPL, but also adjust it at any time. 

Why would you need to adjust your CPL? Simply put, the higher your CPL and the more you are willing to pay for each lead, the higher your volume of incoming leads will be. Understanding this concept is crucial for successful lead generation, as you have to be willing to put in more money to see more leads.

Conversely, if you are overbooked, low-staffed, or just need to slow down on jobs, you can lower your CPL to reduce lead volume. This control over your lead generation campaigns is one of the features that sets Service Direct apart from other lead generation companies where you might have to call a representative to make critical changes to your campaigns.

How Your Location Affects Mold Removal CPL

When deciding your cost per lead, it’s important to understand that a myriad of factors can affect what CPL will work best for your lead generation goals. These factors include competition and lead volume for your service area. 

That’s why you need to know the specifics of mold removal lead generation in your location before getting started. 

For example, in the first 3 months of 2023, the average cost per lead across the country for mold removal campaigns was $149. But that’s not necessarily what you can expect to pay. Depending on your area, the average CPL may be higher or lower than that. 

In Texas, for example, the average CPL for mold removal leads in that time period was $185. And looking even closer at a city like Dallas, the average CPL rises even higher to $207. In other words, if you are a mold removal company in Dallas, you might expect to pay almost $60 more per lead than the national average.
