I see you have just joined our forum and you are seeking shameful self promotion.

How about posting something useful about painting to be of mutual benefit to our trade ?
Not a shameful promotion. Just trying to make sure I don't have to lay off any of my employees this winter. You should know that wintertime painting slows down. I have enough work to feed myself, just more worried about my employees familys. If you have any paint questions feel free to ask and I will try to help you too. We should try and look out for one another. Don't you think?:yes:

Denton Tevas HAS a winter ???????????????????


Yah know, throughout my short career as an independent contractor, I've oft had offers of "you promote me and I'll promote you"

I've learned during those measly four + decades that it is best for me to know WHO and WHAT I am promoting. I've discovered that if I pass on to Suzie and Harry a high quality craftsman, I also benefit, but inversely, if I recommend a ******* hack, my reputation suffers. AND conversely, if the guy who passes on my name is one who is discerning, the jobs through him are ones I can be proud of having my name on.

So I have learned not to indiscriminately connect myself with everyone who promises to share my name. It's always a good idea to know who and what you are allying yourself to.

Same here, fortunately I don't use that approach online. I don't believe FB fits painting as much as it does other services, products, etc. Only exception I believe is if ur part of a national chain or franchise.
If you work it, it's a cheap way to get some calls or emails, but it can be a lot of effort without enough return.

If you are a frequent user of FB then having a company page takes a minimum of effort. You essentially have a free second 'free' website. One in which you can access and change at will.

We make at least one post per week with pictures to show off interesting, challenging jobs or funny day to day moments from our work week. Costs nothing, except for the time to do it. Which is about the same amount of time as it takes to write this post.

What's more, homeowners that are big fans of FB will search for you on FB. Here's our page. I will happily 'like' the OP's page.

Great-looking FB page! I'm not normally a big fan of company's pages, but that one strikes a great balance. Nice to see the training sessions as well as the project photos.
