This happens to contractors all the time - a prospective client will say to you “If you can meet our budget we’ll let you do this job”. For decades, contractors have been giving away control to the point where the average consumer thinks that they can play budget games and try to tell us how much a job will cost. Fortunately for you, there are clear steps we can take to regain the ownership of the budget; and it all starts with taking control of your business.

In this episode, we talk about…

  • Knowing your numbers
  • Building a brand
  • Getting Leads
  • Marketing your business

Podcasts are growing in popularity and this is an amazing time to start and launch your own podcast! Even though podcasts are typically free, contractors can use them for marketing and growing their business. Podcasts allow contractors to share their story and provide value in an accessible way. We all understand the importance of relevant content, and Tom recognizes The Contractor Fight would not be possible and would not be as successful without the help and expertise of his friend, Travis Brown. Travis is the founder and Chief Podcast Producer at his company called Podcast Buddy. He helps business coaches, influencers, contractors -anyone- to launch, grow, and monetize their podcast.

In this episode we discuss...

  • Why contractors should create a podcast
  • How telling a story can differentiate your business
  • Quick steps needed to create a podcast
  • Common mistakes Travis has seen new podcasters make
  • Travis’ coaching services and Podcast Buddy’s benefits
