What are you doing to get it to ring?

Try these 3 easy steps that are low to no cost to get your phone ringing today!

  1. Networking Meetings – Every town has a business group that meets weekly.  The Chamber of Commerce and Rotary but the quickest is a leads group.  BNI and LeTip are a few.  Seek out those chapters, attend as a guest.  Make a memorable introduction and BOOM!  Leads will start that day!  If this is out of your comfort zone then you should definitely do this!
  2. Phone calls to past clients – Yes, cold calling, well maybe not cold.  They already like you, know who you are, so ring them up!  What to ask you say?  This is Jeff from ESP Painting, We painted your exterior this past year and wanted to thank you for the work!  After the holiday decorations come down people realize they need interior painting and that is what we do, call ESP Painting for any of your painting needs… and we appreciate your referrals to!
  3. Handwritten Note Cards – Pick your “A” list clients and handwrite 10 to 20 notecards a week until your list has been exhausted.  You can send more if you’d like and I would not recommend doing all of them in 1 week.  “Thank your for being a great client to us!  Your referrals and continued business is greatly appreciated and don’t forget about our free touchup program for your paint job!  Have an amazing day!”
  4. Email Newsletters – Send one out today!  Make a 1 page newsletter with pictures and content that interest them.  No more than 3 items to talk about and your offer.  Family update is a big hit always!  Tricks of the trade – easy touchup tricks.  Your new offer.  Send it through Constant Contact or Mail chimp!




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
