Any lead that you receive through Houzz directly into the Houzz Pro CRM, or that you manually record in the CRM with source “Houzz” (e.g. from phone calls, emails, or website forms), and that you subsequently convert to a project within the CRM, will feed the count displayed on the badge.
We track this for you, so you don’t need to take any additional steps to have your earned Hires on Houzz badge show up on your profile and directory listing. Learn more about Hires on Houzz here.
What is the “Verified Hires” badge?
The “Verified Hires” badge displays a count of the times you’ve been hired through any source, using the number of projects for which you’ve had a qualifying online payment (minimum $1,000) as a way to verify and count the hires. All of our premium customers are eligible to earn the "Verified Hires" badge for their profile and directory listing.
Whereas Hires on Houzz badges are earned without a requirement to transact through Houzz, we do require this for the Verified Hires badge as it's the best way that we can verify your information and confirm its accuracy.
