Sam Taggart here – The force behind D2D Experts and your partner in all things sales.

Having started selling at 11, I’ve spent 17 years in sales, transforming it into a pathway to success. Over the years, I’ve guided thousands of roofers and collaborated with hundreds of roofing companies. I’ve even been on stage with the big players like GAF, a multi-billion dollar shingle behemoth.

Whether you’re just starting in roofing or running a roofing empire, I’ve got insights tailored just for you. 

Have you noticed that some age-old roofing practices don’t cut anymore? 

It’s time we challenge the status quo and think a bit differently. 

You see when it comes to the roofing industry, it isn’t just about selling a product; it’s about understanding the industry’s nuances, challenges faced by salespeople, and the strategies that can make or break a deal. 

Here’s the thing: not all strategies are efficient or effective. Some are outdated, while others are revolutionary and can skyrocket your numbers. 

Drawing from my diverse background in alarms, solar sales, and roofing, I am here to share some game-changing strategies.

Check out the podcast below, or keep scrolling for an overview:

Here’s What You’ll Learn in This Podcast:

  • The 1050 50 Model: Why this traditional payment structure in roofing might not be the most efficient and how to think about scaling.

 

  • Redefining Job Positions: The difference between a salesman and a project manager and why it’s crucial to differentiate the two roles.

 

  • Operational Efficiency: The importance of guiding salespeople towards consistent activity and the pitfalls of spreading oneself too thin.

 

  • The Power of Specialization: Why salespeople should focus on what they’re good at and delegate administrative tasks.

 

  • Building a Culture of Carnivores: How to foster a sales environment where everyone is hungry for success.

 

  • The Importance of Systems: Every roofing business needs systems to ensure efficiency and scalability.

 

  • Letting Go of Control: The benefits of automating, eliminating, and delegating tasks to free up time and resources.

 

  • The Role of Leadership: How business owners can guide their teams towards success by providing clear direction and support.

 

  • The Value of Training: Why continuous learning and training are essential for new and experienced sales professionals.

 

  • The Future of Roofing Sales: A glimpse into the evolving world of roofing sales and what to expect in the coming years.
