painting contractor business coach marketing

This is the 4th phone message I’ve left with these people!

It’s been a month since I presented the bid.  I’m getting frustrated…

Can you relate to this?

We had a great meeting. They would be “A” clients and it would be a great job to have; we would hit it out of the ballpark.

I presented the bid on the spot, I showed them my video testimonials, I asked them for the sale, and I even sent them a handwritten note card!

What am I doing wrong?

Why won’t they return my calls?

Can they just tell me a yes or a no?

I’m getting frustrated with the follow-up process!

No more frustration. Here is how our follow-up process works, assuming you prequalified correctly, which you can get for FREE emailed to you now.

The Key is to simply, Ask for permission to follow up: 

A. “Mrs. Smith, I normally follow up with a phone call, may I call you on Monday morning at 9 am?

B. “Mrs. Smith, what is the best way for me to follow up with you? A phone call, email or text? May I follow up with you Monday morning at 9 am?

Make sure to agree on a specific date and time for the follow-up. That way, they are expecting you and you are not an interruption.

If they decline your follow up or tell you that they will call you if they are interested, it’s a “NO”.

However, they do get added to my potential client marketing list.

Just because it’s a no now does not mean it’s a no the next time they need painting done.

I have been referred by many people who did not use our services and won the business!

Remember Steve’s story of “Arthur from New Jersey”… 6 years after the bid he won the business!  Just because he kept asking permission and following up, year after year, and you can too!

About the Author

As a newly single father of two from MI, he struggled to start over as a paint contractor in FL, going door to door. His situation was so bad, even the IRS had mercy on him.

 Feeling completely hopeless, he remembered the story of King Solomon praying for wisdom. Could it be so easy? 

He felt he had absolutely nothing to lose. So, as a bankrupt, divorced, high school dropout, single father of 2 young kids, now living 1250 miles away from all friends and family, started to pray for wisdom.
 And while he continues to wait for the wisdom to arrive, what did come was an insatiable desire to learn and read books… 
Thanks to God for giving him the burning passion to read books, and attend seminars, (oh and winning the wife lottery) he not only cracks the success code and overcomes the struggle, but also streamlines his painting business in less than 3 years, published a how to book, then sold the company. Now he leads a business coaching company for painting contractors so he can help other businesses, like yours, to do the same. Hear more... Or
