Next Generation Digital Marketing: Lead Capture AI
Aurora Solar’s Lead Capture AI empowers marketers to innovate the top-of-funnel experience with personalized, AI-generated 3D solar estimates for homeowners, enabling businesses to:
- Decrease acquisition and overhead costs: With just an address and utility bill estimate, homeowners are instantly presented with potential solar savings and a 3D visual of their own home outfitted with solar. By eliminating the back and forth of site visits, paperwork, and inaccurate estimates, solar businesses convert more web leads.
- Boost conversion funnels and streamline deals: Using the website to capture qualification data empowers sales and marketing to accelerate speed-to-lead.
- Stand out from the crowd: Digital-first marketing and sales strategies enable solar businesses to meet — and exceed — homeowners’ expectations with a seamless, omnichannel experience.
“In less than a month with Aurora’s Lead Capture AI, we quadrupled our web lead volume and saw 25 percent higher appointment set rates from our organic leads compared to what we generated through other marketing channels,” said Richard Murdocco, vice president of marketing, NY State Solar. “Lead Capture AI’s engaging visuals with readily quantified benefits help potential clients understand not only their savings, but what solar would realistically look like on their home.”
