    Contractor Marketing

    in Marketing

    Showcase your work with us. You’re proud of it and you’ve poured your heart and soul into it – so let us show the rest of the world. Building and remodeling videos are going viral every day. People all over the world are genuinely interested in your trade, so why are you hiding it from them?


    Show them what you do on video. Let’s be honest, many of your clients start by being DIY fanatics, they’ll research online and try to imitate the professionals. So the best thing you can do is introduce yourself to them in this early stage. Show them who you are and what you can do. An instructional video is the best type of marketing content you can put out there. It builds trust by displaying your skills. Of course, it took years to build those skills – something that DIY fanatics will soon find out, and then they’ll call you to fix the mess.


    Same as DIY, remodeling is one of the biggest trends of the decade. Everybody fancies a new bathroom or kitchen, so why don’t you put on display your best work? Video marketing, in fact, every type of good marketing, is about telling stories. People love hearing a good story, and we’re sure you have great ones to share. Some hideous, dark, rundown kitchen that you’ve remodeled into a beautiful work space fit for a professional chef. Or a hidden gem of a bathroom that you’ve polished to perfection. Even better, some disaster you helped avoid at the very last minute – disaster stories with a great result are even better than success stories for creating viral content.


    Let us be the story tellers for you. We’ll do the talking and the networking, and you can stop worrying about your next contact. You’ll just have to decide which jobs you want, and which ones you’ll be kind enough to refer to your less fortunate competitors.

    HOW TO BECOME A CENTER OF EXCELLENCE 

    HOW TO BECOME A INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR

    Independent Contractor is a natural person, business, or corporation that provides goods or services to another entity under terms specified in a contract or within a verbal agreement.

    The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or direct only the result of the work and not what will be done and how it will be done. The earnings of a person who is working as an independent contractor are subject to Self-Employment Tax.

    Distinction Between an Independent Contractor vs an Employee

    in Business

    Appearances are not always what they seem. In this show, Bill and Rick discuss the various factors that go into the mix when ascertaining the true classification of an individual as an employee vs. an independent contractor. While we might normally think its either a verbal or contractual agreement that determines status, when challenged by one of the party’s, there are several measuring sticks courts will look at in order to determine the true intent of the parties. Its not as simple as merely issuing a 1099 or W-2. If you are in need of help in your business, and you are thinking about engaging someone’s assistance, this show will explore the information you’ll need to determine the direction and understanding required to ensure both the status of that individual as well as your obligations to him/her, as either an employee or independent contractor.

    The Amazing Therapeutic Benefits of Hot Tubs


    Here are a few reasons to invest in a hot tub and a glimpse into the amazing therapeutic benefits.


    Relieve Muscle Pain
    One of the best traits of a hot tub is its ability to eliminate muscle pain. With sustained elevated heat and targeted massage, there’s nothing like submerging a sore body into a steamy pool of bubbling water.


    Promote Sleep
    Using a hot tub prior to going to bed will promote a deep, restful sleep. Getting out of a hot tub causes core body temperature to drop, which triggers the release of certain hormones that promote sleep.


    Alleviate Stress
    While we all endure some degree of pressure and anxiety, elevated stress is unhealthy and can cause serious health conditions. Even a 20 minute soak in a hot tub can provide stress relief.
