American Painting Contractor’s Marketing Interview with APPC Founder Brandon Lewis

APC Magazine Logo

Recently, APC Magazine’s Editor, Emily Howard, made me “spill the beans” about the marketing secrets most ultra-profitable painting contractors typically keep to themselves.

In this edition of Paint Radio, I pull back the curtain on these little-known concepts…

  • The Painting Profits Pyramid (and why so many painter’s never make the kind of money they deserve)
  • The Marketing Compass (a tool you simply can’t live without unless you want your market dollars to “get lost”)
  • What It TRULY Means to Be a Master Painter (trust me, it’s not what you think when it comes to profits)

You can listen to this podcast while you work or relax by Clicking Here.

You can also read the article, Seven Steps to Drive Volume, Consistency & Margins. NOTE: The article begins on page 26!

In this article, I go even further in-depth on the fundamental steps every painting contractor must know to maximize profitability through direct-response marketing.

I hope you enjoy these valuable, free resources.

“Our first campaign reached $60,041.98! That's a huge percentage of our annual sales! You don't pick the peach orchard just one time. Different peaches ripen every day. Thanks for encouraging us to keep after it!”

“15 requests for quotes and closed and/or completed $23,000 of work and I still have a few more to do. Conservatively this campaign will net $25,000 in found money in the first 45 days! Thanks Brandon!”

“This year has been the biggest year of growth for us. We're double where we were last year. I realized the real money in this business is in the marketing of the services - not the doing of the services.”
