Elevate your Roofer Brand

Heidi J. Ellsworth, RCS Partner visits with Jeff Williams, IKO Brand Director and Jack Gottesman, IKO Marketing Manager about branding in this informational and thought-provoking Roofing Road Trips podcast.  To many roofing contractors, “branding” can sound like a big undertaking that is potentially unnecessary.  Jeff talks about how it can be intimidating to even a seasoned marketer, so it is understandable that this concept can seem elusive in day-to-day business.  Heidi and Jeff review the importance of taking the time to establish a strong brand and how it will continue to help and improve sales and marketing as well as overall company culture.  Jeff shares the top five things every roofing professional should know about branding their business for success.

Video Marketing and Selling Performance

Heidi J. Ellsworth, RCS Partner, visits with Jack Gottesman, Marketing Services Manager for the U.S., about how contractors are working with homeowners using video marketing to help them find the right roofing shingle that offers both performance and appeal.  

Jack shares on this podcast that there is no such thing as 'one size fits all' when it comes to selecting roofing shingles.  Asphalt shingles can provide the beauty and luxury of authentic shake or slate roofing and he is working with contractors across the country to help share the message of beauty that performs with homeowners through the use of video during this time of social distancing.

Helping contractors find the right performance shingle line with the right colors for homeowners is Jack’s passion. He will share the process of selecting the right product for the right region with the perfect color to make any homeowner happy.
