Hey. It's Brandon Lewis here. As you can see behind me, there are lots of rapids here at the Conasauga River, because recently, it rained a lot and there's whitewater, right? Noise, turbulence, is what they also refer to it as. It's interesting. I work with hundreds of painting businesses, lots of owners, and I've discovered that the same...
Hey guys, it's Brandon Lewis with the Painter's Academy, and I want to talk to you about selling your services to commercial painting prospects, especially repaints. I will never talk to you about new construction, I think it's a bad industry with low margins and lots of risk, but I will talk to you about going after large commercial...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis, with Painter's Weekly, and we're moving into the spring repaint rush. That means the labor market is getting tighter. Let me ask you a question. Do you struggle with hiring and recruitment? Is it a big issue? Do you feel like you can't find any painters? There aren't any painters. There's no painters left out...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis with Painter's Weekly. I see a lot of things going around in our industry about generating leads online, and a lot of it is not very helpful. A lot of it is about renting to own your space online. It could be going with a lead service that gives leads to five or six other...
Hey it's Brandon Lewis here with Painters Weekly and I've got some pretty exciting news in my world. I'm having another girl. We did a gender reveal this weekend and it was super exciting to have everybody here and to find out that we're going to have yet another addition to the Lewis household that is of the female...
Time management is something most painters struggle with... you are not alone! This weekend, we celebrated Sylvia’s 6the birthday with a grand tea party where she invited all of her friends. They had a great time eating dainty sandwiches, sipping tea, receiving etiquette lessons, and trying on large, outlandish hats. When all the girls got together wearing their many hats, it...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis here. I can't tell you how many times I get on the phone with owners who are at ten, 15, 20 percent net profit in their painting business and they think it's okay. They think it's the norm. I'm here to tell you that you can quickly and easily get to 30 percent net profit...
The hardest thing you will ever do in your painting business is turn a complete stranger into a satisfied client. Yet every spring, owners allow the “Painting Pirates” to commandeer relationships that took decades to build. Don’t believe me about the difficulty of building your client, prospect, and referral list? Consider this...? I could parachute into your local market and start...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis here. I'm getting ready to leave Galveston, Texas, where I've had a wonderful four days at the PDCA Expo, where I was able to raise $49,500 in about 10 minutes because of the amazing generosity of the owners of painting businesses in the room, people that absolutely love this industry, love the fellowship, love the...
Hey guys, it's Brandon Lewis here with Painter's Weekly. I hope you like my shirt. A friend of mine bought it for me for Christmas, Tommy, my best friend since 4th grade. We spend all our holidays together. He's like a big brother to me and I don't know if you know but, Polk High 33, is Al Bundy's jersey...
