Referral Marketing for Painting Contractors & House Painters

Recently, I wrote a two-part article in APC Magazine entitled “Word-of-Mouth Advertising Is a Big, Fat Lie”…

Tell me if you think I’m on to something or going in the wrong direction:

Word-of-Mouth Article Part One

Word-of-Mouth Article Part Two

You see, so many painters want word-of-mouth referrals and many claim that it is the #1 they get business. However, the truth is this: It is unpredictable, unreliable, and gives-way when you’re staffed up and you need work the most.

If you’ve ever been in the middle of this “hoping-and-waiting-for-the-phone-to-ring” wasteland, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about. In these articles, I unpack the programs and strategies I’ve used so successfully to help painting contractors create referrals in abundance… and with predictable consistency.

What do you do to generate leads and referrals for your painting business?

“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.”
