Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 28, 2010
Miami-based G|Four Marketing’s “1INTO5” referral marketing program has been cited as “2009 Best Idea of the Year” by national contractor training firm, Certified Contractors’ Network (CCN). The award was presented to one of its members, Charlie Grindele, owner of DialOne Windows in Laguna Niguel, CA, at their recent conference held in Miami, FL.
A spokesperson for CCN said: "The biggest failing of contractors is that they get so busy running their businesses that they don't take the time to educate themselves or their employees on how to grow their company. Our “Best Idea of the Year” award is presented annually to one of our members who made great strides in this area by implementing a results-oriented strategy with proven results.”
About the “best idea”, he had this to say: “The 1INTO 5TM” referral marketing program, offered by G|Four Marketing, is the best program we’ve seen in this category in quite a while; we applaud Charlie Grindele for taking advantage of this unique – and very profitable – marketing opportunity.”
Upon receiving the award, Charlie had this to say: “The program just works! I started with G|Four last June by incorporating the “1INTO5” program into my business marketing plan. Within 3 months, I enjoyed a 60% increase in customer referrals! I was so excited by the results, I’ve shared it with many other CCN members who have since signed up for the program.”
He went on to describe his updated results: “I’ve spent about $17,000 and from it, got over $600,000 in additional business. It’s a no-brainer…! I want to thank CCN for this award and G|Four Marketing for introducing me to this amazing program.”
G|Four Marketing’s owner and founder, Brian Kaskavalciyan, described the “1INTO5” referral marketing program: “The 1Into5 Program™ is the only completely "Done For You" Marketing System designed to show appreciation to, keep in touch with, make additional offers to, and solicit referrals - hundreds, even thousands of times every year - from its clients’ best customers.”
He went on to say: “This powerful and affordable program is designed specifically for successful home improvement companies. As a member of the 1Into5 Program, with less than 10 minutes of "work" per week, our members activate a powerful series of marketing activities including; gifts, direct mail, emails and electronic newsletters to their best customers... all without another action or thought on their part.”
