Stellar-eMarketing Announces Discoveries on How Small Restoration Companies are Transitioning to Large Companies.

Dan York, Founder of Stellar-eMarketing, Inc., one of the nation's most experienced and accomplished Disaster Restoration Marketing Companies shares his discoveries, having worked directly with hundreds upon hundreds of Disaster & Water Damage Restoration Companies all over the world over the last decade and how smaller companies have transitioned into large, vastly successful companies.

(PRUnderground) July 14th, 2020

Out of all possible traits I’ve discovered of those that have made the transition to large and wildly successful companies, I’ve narrowed down the answers to what I feel are a few of the senior traits separating them out:

They’re hustlers. – Sales and marketing consume the majority of their thoughts, time and conversation. They know that to expand a business you have to sell and market like crazy and well above the level where you’re “comfortable.”  There’s no sitting around waiting for things to happen.

They are persistent until things work. – They don’t hop from one failed marketing action to the next. They pick one and they persist at it and jump through the hoops and barriers to make THAT one work. Then they find another, stick with it, and so on.  Before they know it, they have several successful consistent marketing and sales actions going at any given time. They’d never “bank on one thing” to make them a success or quit a new program because “it didn’t work” knowing full well that for anything to work, you have to be persistent at it.

They’re survivors. – They make it through anything. “Bad economies” and  “slow seasons” to them, are just part of the business.  They don’t complain about them. They see that as a market opportunity.  They hone in on their skills when things are slow, make them more targeted, and while the smaller guys are complaining they’re busy gobbling up the market share they’re missing while kicking cans.  They find ways to compensate. They don’t complain, they do something about it.  Then, when the slow seasons are over and pick up, they own even more of the market share.

They are everywhere. – Billboards, wrapped vans, SEO, PPC, Angie’s List, BBB, Yelp, Google Maps, Home Advisor, Mr. Coupon, Val-pack, networking plumbers, property managers and insurance companies, you name it. They make sure they’re everywhere where the client could find them or be referred to them.

They don’t throw $*&! to the wall and see what sticks. – I know a guy who spent his last $10k on a postcard campaign.  It got him one (ONE!!!)  phone call…and did not turn into a job.  He was bankrupt 2 months later.  I know another guy who spends $250k+ per year for radio commercials.  Most think he’s nuts, but he swears by it and says he’s doing millions per year in revenue off of it.  I’ve got clients that make over 75% of their Revenues from our Water Damage Restoration SEO service.  They spend a lot on their water damage marketing and ads, but it’s a 100%, responsibly spent, ROI achieving expenditure.  They know what every penny is doing and what it is making them. They keep doing what gets them an ROI and quit what doesn’t.

They are great business men. – They’re organized, they track profits & losses, they track where their calls and leads are coming from, they watch for high profit jobs & high phone call volume areas, then market more to those areas. They hire pleasant people for the phones that don’t turn-off their customers when they finally call them.  They don’t fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants.  They aren’t doing drugs in their businesses with their staff. Think it doesn’t happen? I wouldn’t write it if it didn’t. I’ve seen guys sniff multi-million dollar companies right up their noses.  No “Big guys” are doing this, I promise.

They are positive people.- They think things will work 1st, then they make it work. They don’t go, “things won’t work” first and then try it (just to prove they’re right that it “didn’t work”).  I can tell these types of people right away.  They’ll say something like, “I saw your website, I know it doesn’t work, but I wanted to hear what you have to say anyway.” Yeah, Bye-bye.  They’ve already decided it won’t work, so of course, it won’t.   My successful clients say things like, “I’m a believer,  but it’s so hard to find a good company to work with.”  or  “It’s not working yet, but we’ll figure it out eventually.” These guys have already decided that it will work…and eventually it does.

This may not be the tricks and tips you’re looking for, but I assure you, this is the reality of the guys you want to be that I’ve worked with.

Aug 10, 2020

HONG KONG — Riot police stormed several malls in Hong Kong on Sunday in a move to thwart more pro-democracy protests, as the city's leader heads to Beijing for talks on deepening economic integration between the semi-autonomous Chinese territory and mainland China.

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Aug 10, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington.

Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...

Hong Kong police say homemade bomb targeted officers

Aug 10, 2020

HONG KONG — A homemade, remote-controlled bomb intended to "kill or to harm" riot control officers was detonated as they deployed against renewed violence in Hong Kong over the weekend, police said Monday, in a further escalation of destructive street battles gripping the business hub. The "loud thud" Sunday night close to riot officers who had been clearing away a protester-built road block marked the first known use of an explosive device during protests that started in June over a contested extradition bill and have snowballed into an anti-government, anti-police and anti-China movement. "It exploded less than 2 meters (yards)...

Aug 10, 2020

BEIJING — Asian stock markets have risen after Washington and Beijing announced a truce on tariff hikes in a trade war. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul advanced. Japanese markets were closed for a holiday. President Donald Trump agreed Friday to put off planned tariff hikes this week on Chinese goods in a fight over Beijing's trade surplus and technology plans. In exchange, he said China would buy American farm goods. But the two sides reported no progress on basic disputes that sparked the 15-month-old fight that threatens global economic growth. Friday's truce "has simply temporarily halted the escalation...

"Is Apple guiding Hong Kong thugs?" the newspaper said. Beijing has pressed companies including Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways to take the government's side against the protests, which are in their fourth month. Apple didn't immediately respond...
