"As far as companies go I am as small as it gets, but that keeps me competitive..."
Stroudsburg, PA (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
People in the local excavating and cunstruction industry are familiar with the name Frank (Francis) Martin. He has been an expert equipment operator for over 30 years for a number of excavating and contracting companies. In 2011 he decided to continue his career as an entrepreneur after the amicable dissolvement of a previous partnership.
Francis Martin LLC was formed in the fall of 2011.
Based in the Tannersville area, he isn't seen on any prominent signs or billboards - atleast not yet. Francis Martin LLC has employed the internet and social media as is almost necessary for any small business trying to create visibility in a tough economy.
He was asked, Why is it a good time to be starting over when so many businesses are experiencing very lean times?
"I was born and raised in the Poconos - specifically Monroe County - it is an asset to me when I decided to continue being self employed. It isn't by any means easy, but it's rewarding. I already have a few customers who have become friends or at least customers for life. Previously, with the help of my son, we developed relationships in places where the neighbors refered us just down the street or next door - over and over again.
Really, that is the best advertising and compliment. People got to watch as we worked and could see first hand where and why the cost of hiring us is worthwhile. As far as companies go, I am as small as it gets, but that keeps me competitive enough to pay my bills and save some money and still be able to produce high quality results. I also think - especially for repeat customers being the only face they deal with, it strengthens their trust in me and my services."
