Bill Burns spent years as a grocery checker for a Safeway in Northern California to support his wife and children, but as his family grew, he started thinking about a different career path. He carefully weighed his options and picked up the phone to inquire about becoming a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchisee. He had no experience in restoration, but he took a leap of faith and invested in equipment, put together a team, and started promoting his new business to the community.
That’s when he hit a snag. The phone wasn’t ringing, and he needed new jobs if he was to support his family and his techs with his new business. “I was definitely starting to feel the pressure from not generating enough calls,” said Bill. “I knew doors opened for a reason, but I had no idea how this was going to pan out.” That's when he turned to 1-800 WATER DAMAGE’s preferred marketing partner: Scorpion.

“I remember when the calls finally started coming in. It was like a light bulb turned on in my head and I thought, ‘This is it—this is the secret!’ We never would have arrived where we are today without Scorpion.” Bill Burns Franchise Owner, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE
Since partnering with Scorpion, Bill’s company has seen significant growth. With an average close rate of 50-75% for web-driven leads and an average 15-20X return on investment from digital marketing, Bill, his family, and his techs have seen more stability and success than ever before. Bill has also taken full ownership of his franchise.
