Hire artists for contracting?
That’s what Nick May, founder of Walls By Design, did.
He’s a successful interior painting contractor with over 14 years of experience and get this, he only hires artists! Surprised? Be sure to listen to this episode to find out why.
Here are some other topics we cover in this interview:
- Why targeting high end customers actually brings in a wide variety of customers and gets your phone to ring.
- A unique way that Nick builds relationships with industry partners in order to get into those million dollar homes.
- How hiring employees makes you better at what you do.
- How to hire your first employee (more specifically, how I should hire my first employee.) Where to look, who to hire, and when.
While Nick isn’t a handyman, his knowledge and ideas can be applied to any home service business. He has a ton of great marketing info to share and you can hear is passion while he talks about how to get more customers. Here is my favorite quote from the interview:
“Almost all marketing methods will work for somebody. You’ve got to find what works for you.”
Wise words for sure.
