Hi I’m Chris Gunn, I am the owner and creator of Marketing 4 Contractors and we guarantee you more Sales leads with our Marketing systems for M&E Businesses
You might not know much about me. But in the past 30 years I’ve done the walk and talked the talk in Sales and Marketing for many of the worlds largest M&E Equipment Manufacturers, Distributors and Contractors in Construction & Building Maintenance Businesses right here in the UK, as well as helping smaller specialist contractor and supplier businesses develop their operations.
During that time I have won all types of contracts from M&E maintenance to full Facilities Contracts ranging from £2K to £2 million as well as selling new HVACR, Controls and Energy Management equipment for several manufacturers whether on new build or refurbishments.
You see, I’m a business owner just like you. I have had my fair share of sleepless nights worrying about my cash flow, my tax, my overheads & my staff… I know just what it feels like to be in business because I have been there and done it and got the t-shirt… MANY TIMES!
It all started for me when I walked away from my corporate career – Salary, company car, the whole lot!. I’d had a successful career, first at PME (didn’t everyone work there?) and then working with Carrier Corporation (see previous comment) , Dunham Bush, Next Controls, PFMS, Acorn Maintenance, Imtech and others.
I was a Sales and Marketer, always responsible for growing businesses. In truth, I’m far from a natural salesperson – in fact it was something of a nasty surprise to me when I realised early on in my career that in order to progress and do the kind of work I was interested in, I would need to sell – So suddenly it was a case of Oh Crap How will I do that!
But through study, experience, and having some of the best colleagues in the field as my mentors, I’ve learned what it takes for even the most reluctant of professionals to become highly effective at Marketing and Sales – and that’s what we now do for our clients.
My business now is helping specialist M&E Businesses (Chiller & A/C, Boiler, Lift, Fire Alarm etc.) whether in Construction or Maintenance and established or start-up micro-businesses. Since leaving the corporate world, I’ve been amazed at the depth of talent, knowledge, experience and passion for clients in the Construction and Facilities businesses that I’ve met.
However I’ve also seen how many of these businesses have failed, are struggling or failing to live up to their potential simply because they haven’t “cracked” Sales and Marketing. I’ve made it my mission to help these firms escape from being the “best kept secret” in their field and to get the clients, recognition and rewards they deserve.
