Answering Service for Painting Contractors and House Painters

If you run a painting business, you know how important it is to answer the phone live. However, you may not understand how high the call abandonment rate is for voicemail, busy signals, and after hour’s calls… and exactly how much money in can cost your painting business (see graph below audio program):

• Recent statistics from Forbes magazine show that 80 percent of callers sent to voicemail do not leave messages because they don’t think they’ll even be heard.

• Other studies site different numbers: Adam Boalt, an expert and a provider of phone support services for small and midsized businesses, puts the voicemail abandonment rate at between 50 percent and 75 percent, depending on the type of business.

• That’s why he suggests having a live person available to answer the phone. “Less than 1 percent of the people will hang up on a live person,” he says.

      David – I’ll have Jennifer email you about this. Sorry for the slow reply, we get so much spam it’s hard to get to the real replies.

    So, if you re discouraged about the process, cause I kinda was too, I m not a real administrative person. I hated getting the documents together, so I ended up getting some administrative help to do that type of stuff for me. I m an on-the-go, high energy guy. So it s simple as it was, when I finally got through it and for a little while I was doing everything but the post packet, and I forgot about the post packet, and Brandon called me out on it.

    To paint our house, we always need a professional painter. But it is very hardship to get a good professional painter. I got cleared all my doubts from this article. This article also can help the painters and painting contractors since it also provides all the information about painting and designing. Thanks for the article.

“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.”
