Telling your company’s story will connect with customers
Everyone has a story to tell, even heating and air conditioning companies. Many are a story of passion, sacrifice, and the will to succeed where others have failed. People can identify with that and relate to it in their own lives. They want to hear about success and what you stand for. If you humanize your company, consumers will identify with it. They will want to do business with you over your competition. So, how do you brand your HVAC business in 2020?
Whether customers want to buy the latest tech, dine at the finest local restaurant, or find a plumber to fix a leaky faucet fast, they’ll most likely check reviews before purchasing, ordering, or contracting.
In fact, one out of three customers reported a three-star or lower rating would dissuade them from patronizing a business. This places immense pressure on businesses to not only satisfy their customers but to delight them as well.
If you own and operate an established business or are just getting started, Yelp is a platform that can help customers provide valuable feedback and for prospective customers to find you.

As a trade service professional, it’s incredibly important to keep your customer base strong. One of the best methods for doing so is investing in a strong sales follow up marketing campaign. Knowing how to market your HVAC business isn’t always simple, but taking an extra step to follow up with a prospect can be the difference between a sale and empty pockets.
But follow up marketing isn’t just limited to that first contact with a prospect. Another follow up marketing opportunity happens after you’ve provided a service to a customer. How do you keep that customer in the marketing loop to avoid never seeing them again? The key – again – is to rely on timely follow up marketing.
At its most basic definition, follow up marketing means that you – wait for it – follow up after an initial communication to stay in contact with a prospective customer who may convert into a first-time customer or turn into a return customer, if you play your marketing cards right that is.
