One of our business owners, James, picked up a huge job simply by talking to people on his way to pick up his machine in Houston.
"It was a long drive down here, but it paid off. We already have 6 semi trucks to shoot in Arizona. So we're diverting off our course [to do the job!]" — James W, Blasting Business Owner See more of James' story here.
Or there's Alex, who started generating business months before he bought the equipment.
"I go around telling people what I can do with this machine. I show them the Youtube videos, I let them know that I came here and tried it, and it does what it says it does. Believe it or not, I have clientele lined up already...and they'd like to have the service done." — Alex, Blasting Business Owner See more of Alex's story here.
Remember, talking to people is free, and it gives you valuable insight about the needs you can fill in your community. So get out there!
