You may have noticed that I’ve been slacking off a little when it comes to new contact on the site. Our company has been busy as ever and that’s been taking up a lot of my time, but more than anything I was just at a little bit of a dead end. Luckily, I’ve solved that problem. At least for the next year.
Starting today, and every Wednesday for the next 52 consecutive weeks we’ll be publishing a new video on our YouTube channel. The series is called Window Wednesday and it came from about 1000 requests from our readers and customers. Here’s the very first episode:
Now I know that frequent visitors of the site already know who I am and what we’re up to but we get comments from window salespeople who are offended by me revealing their secrets all the time. They usually tell me what a no good idiot I am and I tend to get a kick out of it.
You see they often just got out of sales training 101 where their heads were filled with dreams of riches. Then they go out into the world for their first few weeks of actual window selling where they learn it’s not so easy to close those deals at $1,500 per window. They hear about our site from a customer who doesn’t fall for the model home discount or one of the others, and they come hear to tell me about how dumb I am.
So, this is the very first episode. We’re just getting warmed up. The next episode will be about the difference between employee and subcontractor installers. After that we’re going to talk about the one and only reason window companies use today only prices and from there the possibilities are endless.
If you have a suggestion for a video topic, let me know in the comments below. I have 20 or 30 ideas written out and we have 52 weeks to fill so I’m absolutely open to suggestion. Think about what aspect of shopping for windows has seemed the most difficult or the most challenging to navigate. I bet you lunch I can help to make sense of it.
If we use your suggestion we’ll send you a TheWindowDog t-shirt of your very own!
