Right now, as predicted, contractors are reaching out because their phones aren’t ringing. You’ve been busy all summer and have thrown marketing to the side and now it’s catching up to you. You reap what you sow and if you’re not marketing year-round it WILL catch up to you. On top of that, getting into a partnership is not your solution. You don’t necessarily need a business partner. Especially if you’re running a shitty business!

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.

Do these things right and you will attract the Winners to your business.

In this episode Tom talks with Josh Abramson founder of Allbright Painting. ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING began humbly 27 years ago with a few hand-stenciled wooden signs hung up on street corners in the San Fernando Valley.  After receiving his training and certificate of completion from West Valley Occupational Center in Woodland Hills, CA, Josh Abramson would go out everyday and try to promptly respond to the incoming phone numbers on his pager by pulling over and finding a pay phone in the hopes that he would be the first contractor to call the customer back.  His persistence and hard work paid off and slowly the business began to grow.  The early years were extremely rough, but eventually he hired his first employee and began to make a name for himself.
