Client’s Issue:
Quillen Brothers was in search of methods for improving their online reputation by increasing the number of positive online reviews and social media presence. The company also had a need to generate additional leads in a cost effective manner.

Tony Hoty’s Solution to Problem
Tony implemented his proprietary customer care program by helping the company transition a current employee in to the role of Brand Ambassador. In this new position of Brand Ambassador the company representative traveled to recently completed projects to deliver gift baskets to customers. While visiting with these customers, the Brand Ambassador collected dozens upon dozens of photos and customer reviews. The Brand Ambassador also scheduled appointments for the sales staff to quote additional work. Furthermore, the Brand Ambassador elicited referrals to quote business for family, friends and neighbors. Lastly, the Brand Ambassador went door-to-door in tight proximity around the recent installations generating leads from other nearby homeowners. Tony would host “Plan & Review” sessions via phone and web conference in order to review metrics and discuss any challenges. Tony held the Brand Ambassador accountable to specific performance standards and coached on best practices.

Results of Implementing Tony’s Solution
The customer care program has been responsible for the collection of hundreds of positive customer reviews which is well documented on the company Facebook page. The revenue generated by the Brand Ambassador through repeat business, referral business, and radius marketing around job sites has translated to nearly a million dollars in annual sales.

CareFree Home Pros

CareFree Home Pros

Name of Client: CareFree Home Pros

Location of Client: Hartford, CT

Description of Client’s Business:

CareFree Home Pros is an established bathroom remodeler generating approximately $6,500,000.00 in annual sales volume.

Client Issue:
CareFree had a variety of successful advertising campaigns that were producing consistent results. They also purchased leads through various lead aggregators such as HomeAdvisor. These sources although profitable, were effected by seasonality and other external factors which made the company somewhat vulnerable. Furthermore, additional forms of lead generation would be required in order to continue to grow the business.

Tony Hoty’s Solution to Problem:
Tony recommended that CareFree explore an additional form of outbound lead generation that would allow them to manufacture their own leads. This would create more balance in the manner which they generate leads and help them assume more control, particularly when seasonality, political campaigning and other external factors stifled their inbound lead sources. Tony suggested a retail marketing opportunity in a national big box retail store. Tony made on-site visits to train the marketing staff on how-to effectively generate leads inside the retail stores. In addition to employing various strategies for engaging retail store shoppers, Tony implemented his proprietary seven step process for scheduling qualified appointments.

Results of implementing Tony’s Solution:
After CareFree Home Pros fully implemented this retail store program, they generated nearly a million dollars in net sales volume within their first calendar year. To date CareFree has generated over 6 million dollars in cumulative sales from this lead source.

Quote from Client:

“Tony was instrumental in introducing our company to more outbound lead generation, particularly with respect to retail store marketing. His proven process helped accelerate our learning curve, so we could achieve profitable results right out of the gates!”
– John Anglis, President

Client’s Issue:

Southwest Exteriors

Southwest Exteriors

Name of Client: Southwest Exteriors

Location of Client: San Antonio, TX

Description of Client’s Business: Southwest Exteriors is an established replacement window and siding contractor generating approximately $10,000,000.00 in annual sales volume. (2013 – 2014)

Client’s Issue: Southwest Exteriors had participated in various home shows and other live events to exhibit products and generate leads. The results from these events were not providing an adequate return on investment. The company had one medium sized booth space and exhibited its products in typical fashion consistent with all other vendors present at the show. The sales team staffed the exhibit which caused an issue of over-qualification reducing the number of potential appointments.

Tony Hoty’s Solution to Problem
Tony visited with Southwest and introduced a variety of strategic methods for increasing booth traffic which included multiple booth locations, additional exposure through sponsorship, as well various attraction devices designed to drive consumers to their booth space. Furthermore, Tony suggested the removal of the in-home sales staff as the employees responsible for working the home show. The sales team was replaced by event marketers that were trained specifically to execute the home show strategy and schedule firm appointments with his proprietary seven step process.

Results of Implementing Tony’s Solution
After implementing Tony’s recommendations at the San Antonio Spring Home & Garden show held at the Alamodome, Southwest increased their sales from $30,000 to $318,000. That is an increase of over ten times the previous year!

Quote from Client:

“Tony has very valuable experience in home show and event marketing that helped us get up to speed quickly. As a result, we are now seeing a significant improvement in the ROI (return on investment) we need to justify these costly and competitive endeavors.
– Scott Barr, CEO
