    21. How to Build a Roofing Company That Doesn't Own You

    21. How to Build a Roofing Company That Doesn't Own You

    This roofing company owner is done with his work day by 9:30 AM each day.

    Eric Richardson may have dropped out of high school, but he's one of the smartest roofing company owners I've met.

    Listen in to this in-depth interview to learn:


    How starting with the end in mind helps you build a business that doesn't own you.
    How you can spend just a handful of hours per week to generate your own leads (Eric generates about 60 inbound leads per week)
    How to sell value instead of price
    How to get off the roof and out of the truck so you can actually run your business

    Most roofing company owners never get off the roof and out of the truck. Thus, they're always in a state of hustle and grind - trying to get off the hamster wheel, but trapped by what they have created.

    Eric da Roofer has a refreshing take on running a contracting business. Tune in and take notes!

    20. Why Your Roofing Company Needs a Brand

    20. Why Your Roofing Company Needs a Brand

    Find out why your roofing company needs a brand.

    Owner of Golden Group Roofing, Greta Bajrami, shares her insight on business growth.

    She reveals how she has grown her roofing business without relying on door knocking.

    Through her social media presence, prospects get to know her company before they ever even buy.

    She uses this transparency to generate demand for her services.

    And because her success wasn’t dependent on selling face-to-face, 2020 didn’t hurt her roofing business.

    If you’re starting out with a small (or nonexistent) advertising budget, listen in.

    You will learn how you can build a brand without a large budget.

    19. Why You Aren’t Getting Clients

    Homeowners aren't choosing you?

    Find out why you aren't getting clients in today's episode.

    Everyone in your market is going to need their roof replaced at some point.

    The roofing company they choose comes down to who’s reaching them.

    You can create that connection with your market so when they think of which business to go with, you’re top of mind.

    The determining factor is your marketing and branding strategy.

    Your market needs to know you exist. Otherwise, they can’t work with you.

    In this interview with Dylan McCabe, Joe Hughes explains what a brand is and why you need one.

    You’ll also learn what Facebook campaigns to start running.
