    Contractor Clients' Communication Process For Better Bookkeeping

    Posted by Sharie DeHart on Tue, Aug 06, 2019

    Excellent communication skills are part of any process, and by definition, it entails more than just talking. Today, it's the phone, emails, messaging, faxes, and it includes the flow of soft documents. 
     
    Of course, talking is a significant part of it.  Most of us would be lost without our mobile phones.  With internet access and a handful of applications, the newer smartphones replace the need for a traditional landline, fax machine, laptop, desktop computer or camera. 
     
    Many people already go to their bank, move money, pay bills, and pay for services.  Banks have added the technology where you can stop going to the bank altogether, with the bank's app, you can now snap a picture of the check and deposit into your account from your customer's location.

    Construction Company Marketing - Leads, Customers, And Clients

    Posted by Sharie DeHart on Fri, Jul 26, 2019

    It takes work to make the phone ring. It takes even more work to increase the sales ticket. Customers are looking for a contractor to do a little work. If you offer three options, do you find customers usually choose the middle option? 
     
    When trying someone new, they may go with a "Low Risk" by prepaying for services on a "Deal" on a contractor lead generation service. The deal allows them to set a "budget." It allows them to try you out before mentioning any additional details. Have you ever heard anything like this from a prospect: "Hello Contractor, I had nothing better to do this week, so I filled out your form and called you on the phone to ask you come to my house and while I act your tour guide because I am thinking of having some work done."? Not likely.

    Unique Proven Marketing Tips For Your Contracting Company

    Posted by Sharie DeHart on Fri, Jun 02, 2017


    For Most Construction Contractors Your World Is “Hurry Up” And “Wait.”

    • Hurry up and answer the Call from the Customer.  
    • Wait to make the appointment.  
    • Hurry up and get to the job.  
    • Wait for the Customer to come home, to be available.  
    • Hurry up and create the proposal.  
    • Wait for a decision.  
    • In some cases, the Customer says “Yes” and then it is Wait for the Job Deposit.
    • Wait to Start The Job
    • Contractors doing Insurance Work are expecting to wait for Approval from the Insurance Company
    • Wait for the 1st Installment from Insurance Company
    • Wait for Inspection By Insurance Company
    • Wait to collect Homeowner’s Deductible
    • Wait for Final Payment By Insurance Company

    All of this Hurry Up and Wait for activity makes it hard for The Contractor to schedule other jobs.
    Many contractors are only holding a place open for the customer once a job deposit has been received.

    There Is A Better Way - Fill The Funnel And Let Them Clamor To Get On Your Schedule!
