The Service Roundtable is a revolutionary organization founded by a collaboration of leading contractors to share information and help other contractors improve their sales, marketing, operations and profitability. For a very low monthly subscription, contractors are provided with a variety of business tools, such as direct mail letters, brochures, sales literature, training material, pricing spreadsheets and more.
Every week, one or more of these tools is posted to the Service Roundtable members' download center. An email describing the tool and its usage is sent to Service Roundtable members. Contractors can click on a link in the email to quickly download the tools and put them to use in their businesses immediately. They can use them as is, easily customize them for their unique circumstances, or wait for the next tool. Additional emails during the week focus on business improvement ideas and tips.
The Service Roundtable is governed by a brain trust of the nationís best contracting companies. Accordingly, the business tools are contractor focused. They are relevant to the way contractors work today. The Service Roundtable offers the tools most contractors need, but lack.
In addition to the business tools, the Service Roundtable represents a community of progressive contractors. Through our online Roundtable discussion groups, contractors communicate with their peers across the country in a convenient and timely manner. Service Roundtable members help each other solve the problems all contractors face.
The Service Roundtable is wholly Internet based. The use of the Internet dramatically lowers the cost of delivery, making the organization affordable to anyone.
The Service Roundtable is priced at just $50 per month for membership in a single trade, with no upfront or initiation fee. This compares to annual costs of $8,000 to $25,000 each year for most contractor alliances and groups, plus equivalent initiation fees. While many other organizations are content to attract a few hundred contractors, Service Roundtable members number in the thousands.
The Service Roundtable does not compete with other contractor groups, trade associations or organizations. Rather, it is a complementary organization, fulfilling an industry niche in a unique manner. Many of our members are also members of exclusive alliances, trade associations, and even franchises.
Service Roundtable material is made available to many industry consultants and trainers to use when working with contractors. This improves the effectiveness of the trainers and consultants by freeing them up to focus on value added activities like implementation and individual performance improvement, rather than the development of sales and marketing material. Consultants and trainers also participate in the online Roundtables, passing along their knowledge to Service Roundtable members (and also picking up a customer or two along the way).
Manufacturers and distributors support and promote the Service Roundtable because dealer use of Service Roundtable business tools improves the sales performance of their customer base. They know that more sales by their dealers ultimately results in more equipment purchases from them.
