Word of Mouth on Steroids

We all trust friends and family for recommendations when we are looking to buy a product or service for the first time.  I even had a client that came to my shop and said “Roger, FIVE of my friends told me about you. Just tell me what I need.”

But what if there is no friend able to refer you to a professional? Then we visit “Google” or some review site to see what other people are saying.

Here is the point for today’s newsletter: I want to ask for your review online.

Not for your family and friends because I know you will tell them in person or via email or text about how great I am…sorry, I just got a little carried away….. but for the people you (and I) don’t know.

I could spend a lot of money chasing new clients with “junk mail” and having to pass on that cost in my services –  but I know a better way is to ask you (an valued client) for a bit of your time writing about your positive experience with my products and services.


ike my friend Michelle Fontaine from FBSmarty says: “Social Media is word-of-mouth on steroids.” Nowadays almost everyone has a smart phone or tablet and is connected to the internet daily. What a better way to help your friend (me!) than telling thousands of people about my services of “dressing naked windows”?

Don’t be shy! Do like my mom does: just go on and on about my neatness, promptness, knowledge, friendly manner……and my humbleness LOL !!

But in case you are on the shy side you can always just give me a call to chat about your upcoming projects at 508-520-6700.

Thanks very much for your time and nice adjectives recommending what I do!
