Win More Bids With These Postcards

It’s becoming difficult to book work.

That’s why now it’s more important than ever to do everything you can to stand out from your competitors.

I’m going to show you one way to do that,

but first, write down this principle:

Everything matters, everything counts.

A question came up in one of my mastermind groups as to whether he should leave behind a flyer after the estimate.

Do this instead…

After you leave your estimate, drive one block away just so you’re out of sight, and write them a handwritten notecard.

Hi Mr & Mrs Jones,

Thank you for having me out to your home.
It was a pleasure to meet you.
Talk soon, Steve 🙂

That’s it.

No selling, just gratitude.

Make sure you write it in blue ink.

Blue conveys trust.

Next, place it in an envelope and hand address it, and put a fun stamp on it.

Don’t use a typical stamp.

Next, get it in the mail straight away.

You want it to arrive the next day.

Think about how impressed you’d be if a contractor sent you a handwritten note in a self-addressed envelope with a fun stamp on it to express his pleasure in meeting you and gratitude for having him over.

Your value just went up another notch making it easier to see that you and your team are the best value to them.

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
