Hello Painters,

I'm curious as to the information you give to the prospective customers upon meeting them for the first time.

During my initial measure call I normally leave a two pocket folder with my business card, copy of my licenses and insurance certificate. I also include a spec data sheet on the Sherwin Williams products I plan to use.

I'm sure alot of you do the same and wondering what else I could leave to differentiate myself from the other contractors.

Thanks in advance.

What you don't just leave your price on the back of a business card in the mail box?

Trust me... you are already differentiated!

How about photos of completed work? How about a presentation cd/dvd? How about refrencs, both phone and drive by?

My favorite is a one page brochure that says very large at the top "Why should you choose Grumpy's Company?" Then lists several reasons.

I'm not a painter but I belive this holds true for all contractors.

I'm actually in the process of creating a 6 page brochure - 5x7 in size.. that gives the basics of what my company is all about. Pretty simple layout but easy to look at. Here's a downsized version of the front cover.

I have the grumpy page too that gives 8 reasons why I am a remodeling God, the insurance and license. Also leave a sheet with references and testimonials and another one with the picture of my website's front page, a copy of the warranty they will be getting and a copy of the survey they will be getting.

Painters,

Thanks for your responses.

Just recently added written testimonials and phone numbers of satisfied customers. By the way, they are all satisfied!

I've also included a copy of a full page advertisement that I run in a local community paper.

Name Brand Recognition!

I am now researching logo ideas.

Any suggestions?
