Default Hello Fellow Painters

Woo HOO, just found I should post here first to introduce myself and give you some background info. Sorry if I jumped the gun and started posting in things I shouldn't have.

My name is Karin, my husband is a painter and has been for twenty years. We started out in Ohio on our own and were able to get insurance and BWC for our employees, etc. We worked for a contractor as a sub for about two years and he started bouncing material checks on us and we stopped that. We moved to NC since NE Ohio's economy was plunging. We have lived here almost two years and have tried marketing as much as we can afford and can not get hits anywhere. I NEED HELP. I'm the accounting professional and handle all the books whereas my husband is the painting expert. My husband is real good at what he does and I'm just having a hard time marketing which is why I came here.

Okay, I guess that's all for now. My husband I'm sure will come on here and post once in a while too under this username, he just doesn't like computers very much. LOL

Welcome to the forum, there are a lot of great threads in the marketing section that you may find helpful. After you read a few, start a new thread and tell us what you are doing, post your website, etc and we will try to help.
