Glass & Mirror Marketing: How to Leverage your partners

Posted by Chuck Bankoff on Nov 15, 2015 1:07:21 PM

Think Outside the Shower

In a previous article “Don’t Sell the Shower, Sell the Bathroom” I outlined the exact sequence that we used to help market one of our glass and mirror clients sell shower doors and other glass amenities. That strategy (like this) uses glass & mirror as our example, but the concept is consistent across many industries.

Writing Web Copy – My “Easy” List

Feasibility Check on Your Business Model…Do the Math

Got a referral from Brenda the other day. Absolutely no information on who was going to call me other than his name “Alberto”.
