For Painters Frustrated by the “Online Leads Game”
Most painting contractors are disappointed in the leads they get from their painting contractor websites… and they should be. Do any of these problems sound familiar to you in your painting business?
- 1. National Lead Services Are Way Overpriced and Many of Them Pit You Against Other Cut-Rate Painters… This Makes You Constantly Lose the Job to PRICE While You Spend a Fortune and Waste Time Driving All Over Town
- 2. Using “Pay Per Lead Services” Means You Will Forever “Rent” But Never OWN Your Digital Real Estate… It’s Worse Than Dealing with a Pay-Day Lender
- 3. Online Giants Like Home Advisor, Angie’s List, and Houzz Dominate the First Page of Google Snatching Up Local Clients From Painting Contractor Websites… Unless You Know How to Beat them at the “Local Game”
- 4. Constant Calls from “Google Scams” Make It Impossible to Know What’s Real and What’s Fake – Everyone Promises to Put You On the “First Page of Google” for $200, But You Know That’s Not Possible for That Budget
- 5. Even “Fancy Looking” Painting Contractor Websites Can Fail to Rank In the Google 3-Pack or Be Found On the First Page – There’s More to Getting Found Online That Uploading Stock Photos
- 6. Most Website Developers Don’t Know Jack Squat About the Painting Business… So They Build Sites with Terrible Messaging That Doesn’t Make Your Site Convert to Real Leads

If you are a painting contractor frustrated with generating leads online that are high quality and convert, you are not the only one. I’m Brandon Lewis. I’m founder of the Academy for Professional Painting Contractors and publisher of Painter’s Weekly.
And painting contractors … and I know them well … report to me all over this nation, in Canada, Australia, UK, you name it, that they are frustrated with online lead generation, websites in general, social media, et cetera. It’s complex. It’s expensive, and they really don’t know where to go or what to do. The choices are overwhelming. Do any of these problems sound familiar to you? You’re buying tons of leads from these huge conglomerates like Angie’s List, Home Advisor, House, Thumbtack, you name it. You’re shelling out this money, but you’re having to compete with other painting contractors for the exact same leads in a race to the bottom of price. Not only that, every month the price of those leads goes up while the quality seems to go down, and you are actually helping them get between your local clients and you. Then they charge you for the pleasure of reuniting you. And that is terrible. And in the end, you have no equity to show for it, no online real estate portfolio that you have built yourself.
Let’s say for example that you have built your own website, but maybe you’ve done it with a company that’s not very familiar with the painting industry. And so your beautiful, pretty, graphically appealing website never gets found. Doesn’t show up in the 3-Pack, isn’t on the first page of Google, mainly because they have built a website around key terms that have nothing to do with the industry because they do not have the proven data of working in this industry for decades to know what people are looking for or have put you in a place where, because of all the local changes in SEO and the huge matrix that Google is using, isn’t recognizing you as being where you need to be, where the leads are. Maybe not necessarily where you are, or finally they’re driving them to a website that’s found, but because they don’t understand our repaint industry, they have filled up this website with things that do not allow people to gather enough information to convert. So you’re having page bounces.
If any of these problems or others are plaguing your painting business, I urge you to download this free resource that will reveal in a simple way and in a short concise period of time how you can solve these problems in your painting business. We’re going to reveal the good, the bad, and the ugly, because frankly, online leads are a great place to start in your painting business, but without a lot of other systems in place, once you generate the lead, it’s a poor place to finish. So we don’t pull any punches. We paint online lead generation for what it is, a tool and a tactic that needs a little assistance in other areas of your business, if you are going to be successful.
Not only does this wonderful training reveal the same secrets that I’ve been teaching top performing painting contractors to use all over the English speaking world, it also comes with a free report if you’re more of a reader than a watcher. At the end of this wonderful presentation, if you need help, simply reach out. We’ll give you a mechanism by which to do that.
Listen, I’ve worked with painting contractors that are 20 million, 16 million, 10 million, all the way down to a few hundred thousand and startups. I’ve worked with franchise and independents in urban and rural markets. These are the strategies that work everywhere, no matter what. If you’ve wondered what’s missing in your online lead generation portfolio, your strategies and tactics, it’s probably because you’ve not worked with a company or an expert who knows this repaint industry like the back of his hand.
Please get this free resource. You need it right away, if for no other reason than you can pick up some tactics and tips that can allow you to instantly and on your own change a few aspects of your online real estate that can help you generate more leads or convert at a higher rate.

The Problem with Masculinity: There Isn’t Enough of It
Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve watched or heard about Gillette’s recent controversial video. It depicts a wide variety of shoddy behavior and makes the wholesale assertion that men are at worst the source of it – at best complicit in letting it happen while creating a culture that encourages it. If you are […]
At the paint store coffee pot, Brian’s 2019 painting predictions…
Two days ago, I was dropping of flyers at local paint stores about the 2019 Painting Profits Summit. There was a little bit of a line to talk to the clerk, so I got a cup of coffee and spoke to an owner named Brian for a while about what he thought the new year held […]
Why Your Painting Estimator Can’t Close Sales at High Rates
Believe me, I understand your frustration… It’s expensive to hire, train, manage and pay a full-time estimator. It’s even MORE frustrating when their estimate closing rate is low and you constantly lose to low-priced painters. Basically, you are PAYING someone to LOSE business for you. It’s not good.( But if I’m being honest with you, […]
Will you pass on your painting business to your son?
Please don’t find this subject-line offensive. I don’t write the mail, I just deliver it. As best I can determine in auditing my subscriber lists name-by-name, ownership in independent painting businesses skews 97% male. I’m not giving an opinion on it, simply stating the observable reality. It’s no surprise that you find a lot of father-son […]

What Painting Contractors Are Saying!
"It's worth every penny"
My idea of marketing for my business has changed dramatically. All the templates and the tools have allowed me to present my company in a more professional manner to clients. The PowerPaint Presentation Process™ has helped close more sales on the spot. Many estimates that I would normally let slide have resulted in closed sales because of the follow-up systems.
I would tell any painter looking to join that it’s worth every penny. The tools you’ve given me so far have helped me put some people in place that takes a load off me on a daily basis. If it’s a money issue, go ahead and take a leap. Become a member you’ll appreciate that you did.
- Anothy M.
"Exactly what I needed"
The Monthly Mentoring Calls are very good. I learn quite a bit. Great stuff. The scripts and tools in the PowerPaint Presentation ProcessTM was exactly what I needed. Thanks for starting The Academy and helping us struggling painters. It’s gonna be a great year!
- Rob R.
"It has changed my outlook"
It has changed my outlook towards my marketing. The APPC is able to provide that marketing plan that I have needed for many years, but was reluctant to work on to generate consistent leads for my company.
- Ray R.
"Man...this is crazy"
I have never had so many estimates to do all at once … I really do think there is the potential to close $100K if not more from this list I have right now. I am really looking forward to setting down my "painter cap" once and for all so this is probably the best "problem" I have ever had in my entire working life!!!
- Neil C.
"It's opened my eyes"
It's opened my eyes to new avenues for growth. The different aspects of marketing show you how to make more money and work less in the process. Go ahead and join - It's worth it.
- Bryan H.
"It's a must"
Since we’ve signed up with you, we have actually moved into a bigger building. We got a warehouse that’s about 3500 square feet with some offices in the back. I’ve hired three new employees and that puts our staff at 15. We’ve been getting a lot of calls because of the Customer Reactivation Campaign, doing anywhere from five to seven estimates every day. I just promoted my top painter to production manager and I’ve hired my sister to work in the office. I just wanted to thank you Brandon.
You really put a fire under my butt to get going…I just needed some guidance and you provided that for me. I would tell any painting contractor who was considering joining… that it’s a must - especially for a contractor just starting out. They need some guidance as to how to market their company.
- Rob Y.
"I am closing sales at a higher profit margin"
Since joining the APPC, I now have a concrete direction when it comes to marketing. It is teaching me how to effectively spend my marketing dollar for the most return. I’m hiring an office manager and I am currently ramped up to 6 employees. I had two operating employees at the time that we joined. We are booked solid for the next month.
I have cut my estimating time in half...I’m doing my estimates on the spot now. I’ve been able to present myself much more professionally to my customers. I am closing sales at a higher profit margin as a result of knowing how to build more value in my painting service instead of showing up just being a painter...That has helped me dramatically.
- Shawn T.
Your advice is 100% right and made things super simple. I have not even implemented all of your strategies and I’m already seeing results in increased profits! 50% margins thanks to the PowerPaint Presentation ProcessTM. The value far, far exceeds the investment.
