5 Sweetheart Business Tips for Contractors!


Looking for a way to build your business? Then "take a tip" --- or 5 of them --- from the experts at Simonton ProNetwork.

To gain new leads for your business, try these sensible and low-cost ideas:

1 - Reach out to past and current customers. Ask people if they can think of anyone else who may be interested in new windows. If they're happy with the work you've done for them, they'll be happy to refer others!

2 - Use your connections. Ask family, friends, co-workers, employees, church members, club members and anyone else you know if they can recommend new customers.

3 - Reward referrals. A gift card to a local coffee shop or restaurant, or a logo item from your company, can go a long way toward building goodwill with key contacts --- and it will keep them coming back with more names.

4 - Swap customer lists with other businesses. Is there a similar but not competitive company in your marketplace? What about a roofing company or another specialized building company you could share leads with?

5 - Connect with key organizations. Contact your local homeowners association and find out how to get on their approved contractor list --- and contact other HOAs in your area. Consider offering special coupons to members and ask to be included in the HOA's next meeting, in their newsletter and on their website.
