Achieving your customer's trust is important. When you interact with a customer, he or she will decide whether you are trustworthy based on your nonverbal cues, likability, level of interest, enthusiasm, caring and transparency, as well as the ability to listen, instill confidence, problem-solve and exceed expectations. Developing these trust-building skills may help you close more sales.
The February issue features a preview of NRCA's 130th Annual Convention and the 2017 International Roofing Expo®; tips for using technology to grow your company; Chamberlin Roofing and Waterproofing's renovation and installation of multiple roof systems on Dallas Love Field; an examination of stone wool insulation as an alternative to foam plastic insulation; and an explanation of how you can establish trust with customers.
