A New Generation of Lead Creation: Defining the Sales Funnel

By Glenn Renner
HomeSphere President & COO
Originally Published in Residential Building Products & Technology


At HomeSphere, we have a unique perspective on the residential construction industry. We work with the nation’s largest collection of home builders, contractors, distributors and building product manufacturers (BPMs); but we don’t sell homes, home improvement services or building products. We sell connections—to all points of the distribution channel—and open up the lines of communication from BPMs all the way to the end consumer. Our sales teams are out in the field each day with manufacturer reps and home builders who freely share valuable industry insight because we aren’t in competition with them, but rather here to benefit all parties involved in the homebuilding process.

Therefore, we believe we are distinctively qualified to provide knowledge and share best practices with the readers of Residential Building Products and Technology. Each month we’ll build upon previous articles to enhance your sales and marketing efforts and ultimately close more business.
