    EP #47: How to Win at Reputation Marketing ft. Shawn Hill from NiceJob

    EP #47: How to Win at Reputation Marketing ft. Shawn Hill from NiceJob

    Hey contractors, do you know how to win at reputation marketing? If you don't, well, you're in the right place!

    Did you know that 90% of consumers use the internet to find a local business?

    Your next question should be how you plan on making sure those consumers, or in this case homeowners, notice you instead of your competitors. The answer can be found in an emerging marketing strategy known as reputation marketing.

    A mix of brand marketing and reputation management, reputation marketing is all about transforming delighted customers into raving fans. This fandom, in turn, creates a buzz surrounding your business – attracting customers in a way that traditional marketing tactics just can’t touch.

    It’s all about flexing that street cred in the form of customer reviews and letting your work speak for itself.

    Shawn Hill from NiceJob is sharing exactly how you can leverage homeowner reviews to grow your contracting business and how their software can help you stay ahead of the curve.
