Steve’s TOP TEN QuickTIPS of 2013

quicktips-year-in-review-2013It seemed like an inspired idea. Everyone else is running their “Top Ten Best” lists for 2013. So why not your faithful QuickTIPS scribe? But wow! What a job!

Honestly, it was an agonizing process winnowing out the very best 2013 “Make More Money” QuickTIP ideas. In fact, I failed miserably…

That’s why my original Top Ten morphed into our “Bakers Dozen” of 2013’s very best QuickTIPS! I couldn’t keep it to ten! So how many have of these great QuickTIPS you implemented?


Free 12 month “Spot and Spill” Warranty- Double your protector sales PLUS motivate homeowners to stay “on schedule”.

“Show and sell”- Blow your prospect away when you perform a dramatic “pre-demo”!

Surviving the “Dark Days” of Winter- Use these $50.00 gift cards to fill your slow season!


Get them out from behind their desk- Here’s how to involve your commercial contact in a “walk-through”.

How to get paid to do a “demo”- Better this than let the job go to your cut-rate competition!

Tap into the Realtor market- This is the fastest, cheapest, most effective marketing I know of!


How to “triage” water losses- When you are “flooded” (forgive me!) with water damage avoid the losers and book the “sweet ones”!

Your techs will fight to be “on-call”-  Bribery (and your employee’s greed) is a very effective motivator!

Create super loyal adjusters- Communication is everything so set up a password-protected “Sharing Folder” for each adjuster.

Conquer your biggest business enemy- Just ask yourself this one question… every single day!

Part time employees vs. full time- Here’s the pros and cons of part time workers.
