Why you should trust Dave Negri to help
you grow your contracting business

Our marketing podcast is unlike anything available elsewhere to contractors…we talk with marketing specialists across the board who give us concrete tips directed entirely towards the trades. Some of the topics we cover include Marketing, Sales Cycles, Pricing, Positioning, Branding and more. Just about everything we talk about we’ve done the good the bad and the boring. We discuss what has worked for us why it has worked and why it might not have worked. Good marketing is the key to having a very profitable business. Throwing good money into the black hole of advertizing is not good marketing it is BAD advertizing . We will show you the difference and teach you how to ask the right questions when that next person comes in to sell you advertizing. Remember the person selling you advertizing is selling you advertizing today so he can eat tomorrow. He is not a team member.

We are a marketing resource to contractors in the building, painting, pressure washing, roofing, plumbing…heck almost any trade that you can mention.

Dave Negri

Contractors Secret Weapon owner and operator

Our goal for this podcast is to help contractors stay on top of all the different marketing topics that are available, sorting out what is working (or not) in the industry today.

At the end of the day, we will consider it a win if you achieve enough success to stop thinking of your contracting business in commodity based terms and can switch over to a value based business, cherry picking only the best clients who respect you and your experience in your trade.
