Here and there

My goal is for you to find something of value in this post – something that you’ll be able to grab and implement into your life and/or business. Here goes:

Is it friendly? Professional? Make sure it’s not the default: ‘you’ve reached 5 1 7 9 0 2…’

If it’s not very professional, if you sound grumpy or in a hurry – record it and make it better (an idea I shared in Remodelers Community – another free Facebook group you might consider joining.)

So we’ve talked about Eating Your Frog, securing Google Reviews, opportunity to work on the balance of Faith/Family/Business/Life, and a quick reminder about your voicemail messages.

Lastly, if you are looking for a way to save time and execute your sales and marketing at a higher level – here’s a video that clearly explains how Remodelers AutoPilot works and what it includes.

Time: How to find more of it

A few quick things for you today:

Are you on Instagram? I’m going to be posting business related items more often over there. Please follow me here!

I’m dusting off the podcast! I uploaded two new podcasts last week. Search and subscribe to ‘Remodelers On The Rise‘ in iTunes or your favorite poodcast app.


I’ll be in Nashville next week for the National Remodeling Show! Are you going to be there? Let me know so that we can meet up in-person.

I’ll be teaching two sessions on Friday (10/27/17) morning – would love to see you there:

  • 10:00AM – F03 What You Must Do to Make a Great First Impression – Room 202A
  • 1:00PM – F08 5 Powerful Words When Talking With a Prospective Client – Room 202A


Time. How do we save it? How do we find more of it?

That’s one of the key things Remodelers AutoPilot offers.

It helps you quickly organize your sales pipeline, follow-up with a click, fire out an appointment confirmation email in seconds, send out a professional monthly email newsletter to your entire list in a couple minutes, schedule 5 Facebook posts with hardly lifting a finger – the time savings adds up each week as you execute your sales and marketing at a very high-level.

A helpful tool for you

This is a little tool that might save you some time and help you get creative in your follow-up with prospects.

It allows you to quickly record a video of your screen (along with your voice) and spits out a simple link to the video.

Great for creative follow-up with prospects.

To email design revisions back to a designer or architect you’re working with.

To give one of your office employees instructions on how to complete a task.

Here’s a video I recorded to show you how it works. It’s a free program called Jing.

I hope you find it helpful!


Imagine if…

You can get a professional email newsletter out to all of your previous clients and prospects with roughly 2 minutes of your time.

You can send excellent Pardon Our Dust postcards to all the homes around the neighborhood where you’re working.

You can click a button to send out a professional appointment confirmation email.

You can quickly and clearly see your Sales Pipeline and follow-up with prospects in a variety of quick and easy ways.

You can click a button at the end of the project to automatically send out a Client Satisfaction Survey, 5 days later an email to have your client leave a Google review for you, a nice 6, 12, and 18 month check-in automatically scheduled and sent at the correct time. 5 seconds of your time and all of that happens for you.

Those are just a few of the things that Remodelers AutoPilot can do for you.

Text them!

I was doing a class yesterday for everyone who signed up for Remodel Your Sales Process.

We were talking about how to best follow-up with our remodeling prospects – one (of the many!) things we discussed was:

Don’t be shy about texting them! Often we call and leave a voicemail a couple times. We send them an email.

And we get nothing.

Send them a quick text and a lot of times we get a reply and an update from them!

If you haven’t tried this before, try it today.

One of the participants tried it while we were on the webinar – he sent me this text to let me know how it worked:

“Texted another one I called earlier with no answer and they called me right back! ? ?

Another one he texted sent this back to him (again, someone who hadn’t responded to his calls):

“Thank you for the call and text. My days have been insane. I’ll have time to call you tomorrow between 2 and 3. Talk to you then!”

Just a simple idea for you today that you can implement today! Let me know how it goes.

The remodelers below were overwhelmed. Then they signed up for Remodelers AutoPilot and everything in their life is better now! That was a bit of an exaggeration – it doesn’t solve all of the troubles in your life, but these folks are definitely less overwhelmed.

They have a more automated sales process (they click a button and an appointment confirmation email is sent), a consistant email newsletter is going to all of their previous clients – they now have several solid systems implemented in their remodeling business.
