How to Stay Connected to Customers While Social Distancing

We’ve all felt the impact of COVID-19 personally and professionally.  As your business heads into peak roofing season, tapping into a range of available digital tools will help you successfully engage and connect with customers while respecting the Center for Disease Control’s and World Health Organization’s recommendations for social distancing practices. 

Taking the following steps can make the transition from face-to-face selling at the kitchen table to virtual presentations and selling strategies seamless for you and your team.  With so many rapid changes, make sure to familiarize yourself with local government restrictions on roofing services and general state-issued safety guidelines before starting a project.

Prioritize Safety Without Sacrificing Your Success

Nearly every step of your sales process can be done online without the need for in-person meetings, allowing you to prioritize safety while keeping your business running smoothly.

Here are some ways you can provide No-Contact Services, starting with your Virtual Presentation Sales Kit.

Enable Appointment Scheduling Online

Use scheduling software, such as Calendly or Appointments on Facebook, to allow customers to easily set up appointments and avoid the back and forth.

Deliver Your “In-Home” Presentation via Video Calls or Conferencing

Social distancing and stay-at-home orders mean no more physical presentations at the kitchen table. Instead, use video conferencing software, like Zoom, to virtually provide your “in-home” presentation to your customers. Be sure to follow Zoom’s best practices for security.
