You Can't Hit a Target You Can't See
Ever dumped money on direct mail letters that got absolutely no response? Or perhaps you got a response, but from the wrong prospects… you know, the “price-shoppers” or those unable to finance who still find time to waste your time while “just checking around.”
Mega Marketing: 2008 Victims & Victors
Back when I was growing up – which is weird, since I’m not grown up yet – astrology was just catching on. Signs of the Zodiac, the Age of Aquarius, and predictions by ladies with too much eye makeup were everywhere.
Indoor Air Quality - Myth or Money Generator
If you’re in the HVAC industry and you’ve heard anything about Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), you know it’s important. You know that energy efficient homes seal in and recirculate the same germs, allergens, and chemicals. You know this can cause health issues for occupants within the home. You know that indoor air can be 12 times more polluted that the air outside.

Mega Marketing: Find Hidden Money In Mistakes
I’ve got a fondness for old houses, old cars, and old buildings too. So, on any given day, things are breaking all around me, “just because.” I’ve got contractors on speed-dial (though some have me on call-block) relative to every system that can fail, which of course means all of them.

Eight Reasons You Should Be Ashamed for Missing Comfortech 2008
I’ve been going to Comfortech for 10 straight years, and I’ve learned how these things operate. I know the “sneaky” things they don’t put in their glossy brochures.So they asked me to “write something” on Comfortech, but failed to give me boundaries, and instructions. (I bet they don’t make that mistake again!)
Train Your Techs to Sell, or Watch Your Business Fail
