  1. This is interesting. I think this book would contribute a lot to the contractor marketing people. My college buddy who has been in construction business always wanted to expand his. Residential buildings is one of the most competitive business since the dawn of time. And for me, it deserves some good recognition. There are plenty of ways to be a contractor leader in the market. And internet is one of the best ways to do your business.

  2. The book sounds interesting. Internet marketing is crucial these days.

  3. It is always good to be informed about such things when you get a contractor for assistance to know exactly what he's doing or needs to do. Installing a heating air conditioning is quite a big investment and you must make sure you have the right contractor taking care of it for you!
