How Painting Contractors Can Get More Word-of-Mouth Referrals

Many painting contractors live and die by “word-of-mouth” referrals and desperately want to crack the code on generating more referrals. Sadly, most residential and commercial painters haven’t the foggiest notion about producing a consistent and constant stream of referrals. Don’t worry… Here’s how…

In this video I produced for Chris Haught at Blogging Painters, I reveal the following secrets about generating word-of-mouth referrals.

1 – What word-of-mouth referrals ARE NOT (HINT: It’s not marketing or advertising as most painters do it)

2 – The most powerful, simple tool for generating word of mouth referrals (If you don’t do this every month you are toast in referral world)

3 – How to easily leverage each and every estimate into a referral bonanza (most painters are wasting this opportunity)

4 – The guaranteed way to create a surge of referrals by piggy-backing on someone else’s marketing success (this is quick and easy, but required trust)

Using these four referral generation strategies, you can take your painting business’ lead generation to the next level and dramatically raise the quality of the clients you work with.

“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.”
