Blaine Fox is a recognized expert on the residential mechanical
service industry. He is currently working with some of the nation's
leading HVAC contractors to improve their marketing. He will be
contributing to the HVAC-Talk newsletter on a regular basis and will
also be speaking at Comfortech this year. This is part three of a three
part article on the importance of branding.
In the first two installments of this article, I discussed the
importance of branding your company as the “energy-saving experts.”
That’s because if your customers see you as the “guys who save
energy,” that really means they see you as the “guys who save
money.” Next, I discussed some of the things you need to do to align
your team internally so your brand message is clearly defined, and your
employees are aware of it and ready to act on it.
