It’s cheaper to keep the customers you have, than buy new ones.

4) New Customer Acquisition: This includes narrowly targeted personality based Direct Mail, Handwritten Radius Neighbor and New Mover Postcards, Job Signs, Goodie Bag Door Hangers and Professional TV and Radio Production & Placement.

The utilization of call tracking and recording, together with Google analytics, measure and maximizes return on investment. Also, make sure that all marketing expenses, including internet domination, is built into your pricing.

Having the right sales tools in the field puts more cash in the bank.

 8) Contractors United for Good.org: This is part of reputation management that stops bad online comments before they happen. It employs both point of purchase cards and online tools. It is a great way to get a quality online SEO citation to build Ranking, but most importantly, it is also a way to focus your company on service excellence and community service through committing to the Contractors United Members’ Pledge:

 “To the best of my abilities, I will humbly endeavor to be

This is partly accomplished through your establishing and committing to your customer bill of rights, as well as employee professional advancement and management standards.

It is a place where you control the content and are not subject to arbitrary rules and comments from vengeful unreasonable people.

It is fair to Consumers and Contractors alike, as membership is limited to Contractors United Members in Good Standing. It is also low cost and contractor friendly at only $35 per month.
