I took the plunge and started my own company, Contract Exteriors, back in 2009. I was the lone sales rep in the beginning, but knew that I couldn’t continue to do it by myself if I wanted to grow that side of the business.
We are a new construction focused business and I understood we needed to learn how to become more effective in the remodeling portion of our business.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Everything changed, for the better, after my first Certified Contractors Network conference.
Networking + Lead Generation + Training = Growth
I went to my first Certified Contractors Network event as a guest in the fall of 2013. Throughout the conference, from the interaction with other owners, to the breakout sessions, I knew this is what I needed to help me grow my business. Prior to going to the conference I researched what CCN was all about. The more I read, the more interested I became.
Initially, what I liked about CCN was the opportunities for networking. I realized that I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. The members of CCN are very successful at what they do. The knowledge that everyone can gain from being around other successful people is exponential.
My immediate priority, when I joined CCN, was to develop a sales team and create a more defined system than what we already had in place. As I started the process with CCN, I was pretty much starting from scratch, so our remodeling division grew almost 350% in the first year! And, our lead generation process continues to improve, daily.
I believe that CCN has helped my whole company refine our system. Without joining CCN we would not be where we are as a company.
CCN’s ability to help develop your entire team from sales to production to administration is the reason I believe every contractor should join the group! The knowledge we’ve gained over the last twenty months has been invaluable and what’s even better is the conversations I’ve had with fellow members has allowed me to increase my knowledge base beyond what I could’ve done on my own. The relationships I have formed with fellow members has been incredible.
Even as a newer member of this organization, I’ve felt accepted into this group from day one. I truly do not know what I would have done, or where I’d be with my business if I hadn’t joined!
See For Yourself
If you are doing your research on CCN, you’ve come to the right place. I highly recommend Certified Contractors Network. Their training and guidance have been so valuable to me.
You, too, can visit a CCN event as a guest, just like I did. Browse around and register for any of their events. You’ll be so glad you did!
