Default Obligatory Introduction

Hello!

I am the "office" for a painting contractor in Oregon, and am constantly searching for ways to help improve the business side of things here. I find myself checking painttalk.com before I even google anything now. You guys are great!

I tend to share something I found here with my boss at least once a month to spark discussion or brainstorming, or even to ask "why do we do _____ this way?" He suggested I register here and stop lurking in the shadows, so here I am.

I will try to turn off lurk mode every once in a while, and actually participate.

Hopefully it's okay that I am here, even though I don't actually paint. Are there any other strictly admins here?

Welcome! I'm sure you can teach us quite a bit on admin.

Thank you, Aaron!

I forgot to say - ESP has been around for about 7 years and I've been here full time for about 1-1/2 years.

Haha! We wouldn't be able to fit that into our schedule, but I can give you the number for someone who might be able to and the two of you could work out a price.

Right now, I'm not even scheduling estimates until the boss-man looks at the house on google maps. Summer is pretty much over and we're booked for exteriors for the rest of September and into October. And it's supposed to rain until Tuesday

No, just determining if you have a successful business model. Their are some members here that believe the painter for a day can bring you great rewards. I'm sure you'll be hearing their voices now that's you mocked them.

Oh. I thought this was all just part of the hazing ritual.

We do sell Painter for a Day, maybe a handful a year. And we donate them to any school auctions that hit us up. But they only cover 8 hours of labor - no paint.

It's more of a marketing tool for us than an actual service, though I'm not sure how it was intended originally.

Welcome to the jungle. We do the painter for a day as well but don't get too many hits off of it.

Welcome aboard. I used to bid against Jeff on a few jobs when I was still in Hillsboro.
