Podcast: Guidance on Reaching Your Goals from the “Home Service Expert”

Josh Smith's Headshot Josh Smith Vice President of Internet Marketing

In the latest episode of The Sharpest Tool™ podcast, Tommy Mello, the “ Home Service Expert,” lends advice to business owners with their own million-dollar ambitions. As the owner of A1 Garage Doors, a $30M-per-year company with locations across America, Tommy knows how to hire the right crew, build an effective marketing plan, and grow a business from the ground up.

To begin, Tommy and our host, Josh Smith, discuss general promotional best practices, as well as how home services business owners should respond to challenges that have been brought up by the COVID-19 pandemic. In large part, his advice (and experience) points to the same conclusion that Scorpion’s experts have found — as competitors pulled their campaigns, A1 doubled down on their digital and traditional ads, and now, Tommy’s techs are working late nights and weekends to cover the new business they’ve brought in.

As the episode continues, the conversation is packed with insightful tips for every home services business owner. One highlight is his “inspect what you expect” philosophy for troubleshooting unwanted outcomes, which is almost universally applicable. From the best ways to stay on top of reviews to details about A1’s recruiting and training process, leaders facing any digital marketing problem will gain concrete suggestions for maximizing their efforts and reaching their goals.
