This year has not been a typical year: high 70’s temperatures in mid February, almost no snow on the ground and lots of work for this time of the year. To be more exact, we are about 87% higher in sales compared to the same period last year.
So, what’s going on then? In regards to the climate, I have no clue (maybe a little) but the focus of this newsletter is the window treatment business. Therefore, my theories to our extra volume are these:
Online Reviews – I have been collecting testimonials from happy clients since day one (twelve years ago). Today between all directories we have about 400 five star reviews and maybe 3 or 4 that are 4 stars. People feel confident that we are a reputable (shady) company and trust we are going to hold up our reputation, which we proudly do.
We Love What We Do – It sounds cliche, but I sincerely love meeting people and finding solutions for their glare, hard to reach, noise & privacy issues. I love when prospects say “the other company said it was not possible”. I am here to challenge that. My competitors even hire me for jobs that their own crews don’t want to do. Please try me!!
We Do Cool Stuff – Below are a couple of videos from two recent jobs. The first is a plantation shutter installation in front of a bathtub. The faucet was set higher than the window sill which prevented the shutters from swinging open. However, we provided a clever solution without disrupting the design element. The second video is about how technology can help you live a much cooler life in your own home. Don’t believe me? Ask Alexa then, or better yet, watch Alexa in action.
In the meantime, I am somewhere having a chat with Alexa…
