There are many home improvement contractors who are missing out on work, because they do not know what they are missing. Home improvement contractors often refuse to give quotes because the job is too small or the job is too big for them and their brickie mate (or whatever the mates trade) can’t make it work, as already mentioned, work for the other, or for any number of reasons. But the truth is that the potential customer will then tell them to all your neighbors, friends, and anyone else within earshot.
When this happens, the one who speaks is not to say something complimentary about you or your business. Other people, then to keep this “talk” away, in their minds, and when they have a job to come and see your name written on the net or in the yellow pages, they are reminded that your friend had a bad experience with you, then they will never call you, unless totally desperate.
This is definitely not the kind of Word-of-Mouth (WOM) advertising that you or your business need.
To avoid this kind of bad WOM advertising is really easy. The first thing to remember is to treat people from requesting a quote to you with the same respect you would want given to you. And that involves ‘ fessing up when needed, and simply say that you prefer not to do small jobs because your company is very large and that it requires more work for your employees, or anyone that is feasible and reasonable reason that you can come up with. But talk with them. Let them know in advance that you would prefer not to do the job and suggest that you call someone, preferably someone that you can recommend honestly. There is no point to say that the and it is a good trades person, then the person fills the job.
My Dad always said to us kids that “we would be labelled by the company we keep”. My Taiwanese business friends always told me that before he could introduce me to any of your contacts, they had to be sure my character. This is logical, at any time, but especially when doing business. If the person who recommended you to the people you don’t want to do the job for the animals-you, you will dress up the bad WOM so I suggest to be very careful if you choose to go that way.
Now, the good news is that if you follow the above suggestions, you will get good WOM advertising to be honest, straight talking trade contractor. There are a lot of scam stories broadcast regularly on the shonky contractors and so most of the people became suspicious, to say the least.
to Be different and aims to satisfy as many people as possible with your honesty and knowledge. Good WOM advertising bursts around your company and providing better paying jobs for people who may never be possible to achieve via any advertising dollars that you would have to spend to get more work.
Use word of mouth (WOM) advertising to your advantage, and not let anything harmful be said about you or your business. This is, by far, the best advertising you will ever get, and it is advertising that you can never pay. For us, it is to your advantage and not to miss by not being on the front first.
