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 […]

HomeAdvisor and Angies List Leads for Painting Contractors

HomeAdvisor painting leads are derided by the majority of painting contractor reviews. Angie’s List leads for painters present a similar problem as well… one you might now even know about.

Been working with this marketing coach for 3+ years and seen phenomenal results. This Painting business coach has helped me keep painters in Missouri busy through the slow winter season and more than tripled our painting company's size. Don't settle for online painting leads that go nowhere. If you are a painting contractor who wants to leave more for your family than a garage full of used paint and some tools for a garage sale after you are gone, I recommend you contact Brandon ASAP. When it comes to help with marketing for painting companies, this is by far the best investment I have made in my painting business.read more

Brandon definitely does A+ work! We met Brandon at a conference where he held a workshop on marketing for painting companies. We signed up for his coaching program on the spot, and he has helped us steer our company out of low-profit new construction to higher-profit repaint and residential work. We have always struggled to generate commercial painting leads, and Brandon has made that process simple and streamlined for us. We wholeheartedly recommend Brandon and his team. If you are a painting contractor you NEED to check out what he offers.read more

Amazing organization that is quickly moving to the forefront of the painting industry! Brandon KNOWS his stuff. He is innovative, yet has a keen knack for combining every form of marketing and sales techniques. He truly understands the power of utilizing everything from the latest in social media marketing, to video, to "old school" mail. Speaking of mail.... he will "read yours" if you give him 5 minutes...lol! But, he will also quickly set you on a path that takes you from struggling in your business - toward success!read more

The APPC is a fantastic source of information, tactics, techniques, and procedures that will prove invaluable to any paint company owner who is interested in growing his business and increasing profitability. I highly recommend Brandon's programs, and as someone who has attended his invaluable presentations on marketing and recruiting, as well as his education about the "business end" of paint company ownership, I can give my highest and unconditional recommendation for these business development services. There is no better source of paint-company specific business information out there.read more

We are a Platinum member with the APP. Brandon Lewis is an outstanding coach! I have ran a painting business for more than 25 years and I wish I had a resource like this when I first got started. He has changed my view and given me the tools to improve two key areas of our business - How to implement a professional sales process and how to recruit quality painters. We attended the professional painting summit last January in Florida. We were surrounded by painting contractors willing to share proven solutions to just about every problem painting contractors will face in their businesses. I'm looking forward to the one In Tennessee this coming January! Whether you are just getting started or have been running a large painting business for years, I would highly recommend you look into how the APP can help you fix those nagging problems we all face.Keep up the good work Brandon!read more

Brandon Lewis has great information and techniques for professional painters or contractors such as myself. I started in the paint business as a painter and two years later started working for myself. I knew how to paint but I have learned everything about sales business and marketing along the way. And customer service. Listening to Brandon Lewis really helped me to be a better business owner. Without sales and marketing you have no business. I was a painter and now I feel like I am much more of a business owner and a business professional. Thank you Brandon Lewis for your great work. And the academy for professional painting contractors.read more

I had contacted the APP sometime in April of 2018. After 7 years in business I got tired of always running into the same issues in my painting business so I was looking for a “coach” of sorts to get some systems in place to promote growth for my business . After a lot of research I decided to join the APP and I am glad I did !!!! I can’t even put into words how helpful Brandon has been !! My business has increased 35% in the last 5 months and implementing his systems has made everything go much smoother . Especially the sales process !! I have never been so confident selling paint jobs in my life . Looking forward to continued growth and I would highly recommended the APP to any painting contractor !!read more
