You know processes and systems are important to your remodeling business. You may also know that creating a process isn't that hard.

I aim to answer that (and motivate you!) in this little audio clip.

Rank #10: 4 Unique & Cutting Edge Ways to Market Your Remodeling Business Online

Podcast cover
Read more

In today's interview with Spencer Powell of Builder Funnel, Kyle and Spencer look at: 

  1. Online Reviews
  2. Our Pricing Content Experiment (openly talking about pricing)
  3. Thought Leadership Marketing
  4. Becoming a Media Company
Spencer comes from a long line of builders who have been in business for over 100 years now, dating back to his great-great grandfather.  Spencer got started in marketing when his uncles' business made a shift from purely home building to adding a remodeling division.  When the crash hit, they needed remodeling to support new home revenue until building came back.   Spencer took the reins on their digital marketing efforts and helped them grow their remodeling division from $2M to $5M over the next few years.  Since then, Spencer has proven his expertise in helping builders, remodelers, and contractors generate more leads and sales using the power of their own company websites.     For the last 8 years, Spencer has helped hundreds of companies around the United States and Canada build better marketing and sales systems and turn their websites into lead generating machines that work for them 24/7.

Rank #14: Job Cost Reports

Podcast cover
Read more

Where did the money go?

We aren’t making any money on this project!

Maybe I need to sub out more of my work and cut back on my self-performed/in-house labor?

These are questions and thoughts one of my remodeling clients was saying on the phone the other day.

He had a lot of hypotheses. A lot of, ‘Maybe it’s this? Maybe it’s that?’

What he was lacking is a hard look at his Job Cost Reports.

Rank #15: Transparency: You’re not going to tell me it's smart to show my clients a price breakdown, are you?

Podcast cover
Read more
Every remodeling sales presentation is a tug of war. The homeowners are pulling for a price breakdown, partly because they’re wary of being overcharged, but also because they need to make informed decisions about tradeoffs that affect their budget.   The remodeler is pulling in the other direction and wants to reveal only the total cost of the job, partly because it’s easier, but also to avoid questions about markup and profit.   Instead of resisting client requests for a cost breakdown, Michael Anschel from OA Design Build in Minneapolis lays all his cards on the table. It sounds like a nightmare but it works like a dream. Kyle digs into this topic with Michael and it’s certain to get your thinking.   An article from ProRemodeler on Michael's process: https://www.proremodeler.com/big-reveal   Michael's presentation on transparency: https://prezi.com/orzynijt1byl/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy
