Countertop Marketing 2020

I would like to introduce myself. I am Paul Gallagher owner of Professional Remarketing Group, and the FireUps Local countertop marketing solution.
My focus is on direct response marketing and lead tracking to see ROI in real time. Since 2009 when i had my first countertop partner I have grown this service to providing over $20,000,000 per year in direct to consumer countertop sales nationwide.

"My denver partner would have closed 2 weeks ago based on the dip in activity. We quickly made and adjustment to message and bounced right back to solid response from the market. As we roll out into the coming weeks we will then be making more adjustments based on how far out the book out is as well as responding to any supply chain issues as they arise"

The key to our success...

...through this difficult time has been our ability to see and track response to programs and adjust perceived value to ensure that any customers in market are continuing to come to us. We track the click through the sale with our lead management tool. This enables us to make adjustments on the fly and respond to changing market conditions rapidly.

I specialize in direct to consumer marketing for the countertop space and have been honing this service since 2009.

I found when stock markets fumbled in 2008 a focus on investments in tangible items increases and we could be in good position to grow your direct to consumer sales. Investments in the home have the prescription of a stable return on investment so a tendency to put money into the home will increase. Especially if home sales and values slow or decline.


Many of your local competitors may not come back from this.

Especially if we see supply chain issues in the foreseeable future.  Access to slab yards and certain products could cause issues for some and make it difficult to provide service. We will look at your position and make adjustments to message and perceived value to tap into what the post 3/2020 customers looks like. Desperation could settle in and we could see wild changes in competition and strategies. This is where our ability to track and monitor success will be essential to navigating the next weeks months and years.

Key Employee Changes

  • You may find if you had to close that key employees could now not be available.
  • New Employees may be available from other businesses. This can strain your business or your competitions business. It is essential to be aware of this and react quickly to employee issues to continue to provide service.
  • Stepping up policies for sanitation for your facilities and for your interaction with people and their homes. This will be important in the short term for both your employees and for your customers.

Bailout monies

Get in line to get yours but from what I can tell this will cover payroll employees and operating expenses "without payback". Any other use of the money will have to be paid back with interest. That leaves owner operators without a bail out.

I will work with you to leverage what we will find as new competitive advantages
and help you adjust strategies in real time as businesses get back to work in the coming weeks.

Every completed estimate is automatically sent to the email address that you provide to us on your account as well as to the customer that completed the instant estimate. This customer may be early in the buying process so take the soft sale approach until they give you indicators of who they are as a customer.

Step 1: The customer may choose a countertop shape or enter the square footage if they already know it. They can also enter the EST# here to recall a previous estimate. Additional pieces can be added later.
Step 2: Once they have selected the shape that best represents the piece they are adding to the estimate we then request the dimensions of each edge and the treatment for that edge.

Step 3: Once they have selected the shape that best represents the piece they are adding to the estimate we then request the dimensions of each edge and the treatment for that edge.
Step 4: Estimate Registration. Registration is required for the customer to receive an estimate. This is essential to the data collection and reporting process as well as our ability to send you the details in real time. We have standard valuation on this form to ensure that the data is accurate as well as we have many catches in place to block the “spammer” from infiltrating the system.  A check box confirms that the user agrees to the terms and conditions basically stating that the estimate is for ball parking purposes only and that they will be contacted by you the local representative.
Email notifications are generated and sent to you and to the customer with a unique ID representing this Estimate.

Step 5: The customer is provided with an estimate only when they provide a valid email address and may click on this link provided in the email providing the estimate details.
Why does it work?
·        You have just captured the attention of a customer.
·        They have invested time in your website and have elected to give you valid contact info.
·        They have also provided you with specific information about their home.
·        The sooner you can get back to them and help them to the next stage of the process the better
·        You have specific touch points that you can talk about on your call to help move the process forward faster.
