Your Marketing CAN Be Improved

How to cut the fat & waste from your marketing budget and at the same time increase your sales by up to 30% in 90 days.

The business owners I talk to on a day-to-day basis are usually in one of three categories:

  • Their business is OK but they want to do better.
  • Their business is stagnant, flat-lined, no growth in sight.
  • Their business is declining.

Where is your business today?

Here are some of the most effective local marketing techniques for service businesses:

1. How is the business handling existing traffic? Are people getting a warm friendly welcome and excellent follow-through? This is a VERY common problem. Everyone is so obsessed with Google traffic but then they have a site that won’t convert for squat, no clear compelling offer, and terrible phone answering infrastructure. A friendly voice goes a LONG way.

2. DATABASE: Does the business have automated follow-up to it’s database of customers? A fun, entertaining, engaging newsletter is cheap, extremely effective, and can foster referrals quickly. This can be automated. If I had a database of 100 clients as a builder and could only do one marketing effort, it would be this.

3. Sales training for all staff (or the business owner). More balls are dropped in this phase than anywhere else. Everybody thinks they are just naturally good at sales, but having a sales system is paramount.

4. Asking existing clients for referrals. Don’t offer anything in return, but then thank them and maybe send a little gift if they refer people. The single most effective thing a builder could do right now is just sit down in front of the phone and start calling past clients with the intent to get into friendly appreciative conversations and then ask for 3 names. You will call their friends and offer to come inspect their home for XYZ important preventative whatever. Or you could offer an educational lunch-and-learn on a topic of “How to Increase Curb Appeal” or “How to Maintain Your Home to Prevent Lost Home Value” or “Easy DIY Green Home Makeover” or something compelling. Have them come to your local library or Whole Foods or something and talk to them for an hour about your topic and then answer questions, and leave them with a nice newsletter or guide or book.

The above can be sold to cold prospects using a very similar script to the one on page 67 of Ultimate Sales Machine by Chet Holmes.

5. Differentiate or die: Create a USP (Unique Selling Proposition). Sounds cliche, but it is a MUST. Integrate USP with all Marketing material. Integrate with all staff, vendors, customers, etc… Add USP to business cards, invoices, letterhead, trucks, uniforms, etc…

“Marketing and innovation make money. Everything else is a cost.” -Peter Drucker

6. THEN you think about your website. MUST HAVE a lead capture and compelling offer as the PRIMARY FOCUS on the website. Model after this guy: http://www.vamedmal.com/

7. The money is in the list. Set up e-mail responder. Capture e-mails on website. Create auto responders. Professionally written e-mails. E-mails can be forever, unlike a home address. Implement drip campaign.

8. Off-site online marketing: Press releases are AWESOME for SEO. Video marketing and distribution (Traffic Geyser or Tubemogul), podcasts on Apple.com and blog talk radio interviews, publish a book on Amazon.com (VERY easy to do…only has to be 28 pages long), big-budget PPC on all three major search engines, banner ads, build links.

9. Joint Ventures can be the fastest way to huge opportunities. What organization has a large list of your dream clients? Find ways to add value and serve their members or clients, and they will promote you to their list. This is a HUGE opportunity.

10. Direct Mail: use the Dunning mailer method (see this video, skip to 1:00:51 to get right to it) to your dream neighborhoods. Most people try direct mail ONCE and then quit. Direct mail works like crazy used as a CAMPAIGN, rather than a one shot deal. The keys are, mail to your dream neighborhood, have great copy, and sequence the mailer properly. It’s a campaign, not a single promotion. Most businesses aren’t serious enough about how they approach direct mail, so they fail.

Anyway, those are some of the best things a business can do to get results. If you want to have a conversation with me about how you can do this for your own business, talking is always free. Fill out my contact form here, and we can schedule a phone call.

Let Me Guess: You Need Incoming Phone Calls, RIGHT NOW? Here is the Solution.

Most contractors I talk to really aren’t interested in any of this complicated “Contractor Marketing” nonsense. I mean, sure, they’re marginally interested, but only for one specific reason. And if you’re anything like them, it’s the same reason for you: You want your phone to ring with new business. Forget all the other B.S. Am I right?

I have provided a lot of marketing and internet marketing services to contractors, and after all these years, one thing stands above all the rest. If the phone doesn’t ring, it’s pretty much worthless.

So, I’ve finally found the most effective way to solve that problem.

A marketing service where you don’t pay unless you get an exclusive, qualified phone call.

How do you like them apples? :)

This is what we’re doing right now, and you don’t have to take it from me, but it is working extremely well. If you are so inclined that you’d like to chat about this for your business, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.

If you’re an HVAC company looking forward to the hot AC season, we may already have some leads lined up for you. The best opportunities are in major metro areas, in regions where it gets HOT in the summer. And to qualify, you should have a 24hr call center and offer 24hr service, and be able to handle the extra call volume easily.

If this sounds like you, feel free to give me a call. My name is Seth, and I’ll just go ahead and put this here: (406) 493-0805. Leave a message about “pay per call” if I can’t pick up, and I’ll call you back asap.

To see if you qualify for this Pay-Per Call marketing service, call (406) 493-0805 or email seth@primeconversion.com
