Selling Paint Jobs is About Confidence NOT Competition

The two most powerful ways to quickly increase your confidence level and skyrocket your profits are:

  • Knowledge - The most successful painting business owners ALWAYS KEEP LEARNING.
Confusion stifles confidence and causes inaction, which leads to stress, frustration and failure.

Hands down, the fastest way to gain the level of success you desire is to 'learn from other peoples success.'

Begin to associate yourself with folks who are doing or have already done what you are trying to do.

Find out what goals they set... what actions they're taking... what books they're reading... what courses they're studying... what knowledge they're gaining!

KNOWLEDGE builds confidence, and confidence (not cockiness) sells painting services...

  • Systems - The most successful painting business owners always develop systems.
To some people the word 'systems' can be frightening... The first thing to understand about creating systems for your business is that, they don't have to be complicated or confusing.

In fact, the KISS philosophy (Keep It Simple Stupid) is a good way to describe how to develop systems for your business.

However, an even better and more accurate way to describe it (KISS) would be Keep It Simply Structured.

You will gain ultimate confidence once you have simple structured systems for each core component of your painting business!

Here is a link to an article I posted on our 'how to bid paint jobs blog' the other day...

It outlines a simple system for the "Client Call-in script" and it streamlines the process of gathering the most important information every time someone calls you for an estimate.

The main idea behind systems, is to create a simple structure so that each task is done exactly the same way every time... Once you know what you are doing and how you will do it, you no longer have to think about it.

Developing systems for your painting business will save you a huge amount of time, energy and frustration in the long run.
