How do you close a sale during a crisis and even have record-breaking sales months? This proven technique will help fill your calendar and close the sale, every month.
Meet home improvement veteran and virtual selling pioneer Dale Thornberry. Dale developed his Patriot Close technique to help contractors he coaches land the job, even when times are tough. These proven secrets helped him continue to close jobs in times of crisis like the 1989 stock market crash and 9/11.
So what exactly is the Patriot Close? Dale explains, “You know, the American people today are the most generous in the history of mankind. They care about their communities and their country. That’s why I called this the Patriot Close. When a large event like the coronavirus crisis happens, many people are not impacted financially. Additionally, with COVID-19, many homeowners have been stuck staring at areas of their home that they don’t like, for months. It might be a bathroom configuration they never liked or a paint color that reminds them of their grandmother, or maybe it's time to add that sunroom they’ve been talking about to the back deck. This additional time at home is encouraging homeowners to make updates to their homes, inside and out.
The Patriot Close is about harnessing proven strategies and methodologies and helping you gear up for a record-breaking sales month in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.
Dale has passed this technique onto other home improvement contractors he coaches. Contractors who utilize the Patriot Close methodology have watched their businesses thrive in times of crisis. One contractor closed jobs totaling $100,000 in just one week during COVID-19! An unexpected result was that the pandemic has positively impacted contractors' close rates. Contractors we’ve spoken with are closing at 50% or more using the Patriot Close methodology, which is truly remarkable. We’ve packaged up Dale’s proven Patriot Close Strategy and made it available for all contractors.
