Evan Islam is an internet marketing pioneer in the home services industry. During his tenure as webmaster of the largest International Contractor Network of Basement, Foundation, and Home Energy Conservation companies globally, he revolutionized the way sales leads were generated. Helping manage a team of 39 web developers, programmers, SEO & PPC experts, as well as content writers and web designers, Evan launched hundreds of websites in 72 markets throughout North America and in the UK.
Producing product based home services industry hub sites for each contractor network, optimizing each of them to become the authoritative website in their respective industries, and establishing network directories to effectively distribute qualified leads geographically to the appropriate dealer was where Evan made his initial impact. This was quickly followed up by designing, and optimizing 160 regional contractor websites with the goal of becoming the “local source” for keyword search of the services provided by each contractor in the dealer networks globally. This combination of dominant local internet presence, paired with authoritative global product representation, proved to be a winning formula, propelling each home services network to become the industry leader in their category.
Evan’s internet experiences are equally as extensive outside of the home services industries, as he held integral positions impacting web marketing strategy at Pitney Bowes as small business division webmaster, and at DatingChemistry.com, impacting dating member algorithm efficiency.
Today, Evan is the founder and a partner in Central Station Marketing llc, the quintessential internet marketing agency in the home services industry. Specializing in on-line lead generation for contractors in the home performance field, Evan is utilizing his innovative strategies and proven track record to help contractors get into more homes, and sell more services.
Evan’s most recent accomplishment is the creation of the “Jupiter Platform”, a contractor specific content management system, that serves as the heart of the internet program for all Central Station Marketing clients. The Jupiter Platform is a one-stop hub for on-line lead & reputation management, call tracking/recording, automated customer reviews, and departmental KPI tracking, among other unique features.
