Hello, Sam Taggart, the driving force behind The D2D Sales Experts.

Today, I’m zeroing in on a pivotal area for any roofing business: roofing sales recruitment, based on a transformative training session in Austin, Texas.

Building a high-performance sales team in the roofing sector presents unique challenges. However, years of refining strategies for roofing businesses and hands-on experience have led me to discover the blueprint for assembling dream teams that don’t just meet expectations—they shatter them.

Key Takeaways

Let’s cut to the chase and discuss these golden strategies that have helped me build teams. 

Watch the video in full here, or keep reading for a brief overview:

  • Leverage Your Warm Market for Roofing Sales Talent

Imagine the untapped potential sitting right in your contact list. Your friends, family, and acquaintances could be the top roofing sales performers. It’s not just a job; it’s a life-changing opportunity that teaches resilience, negotiation, and the art of the deal—failing to introduce them to this opportunity? Well, that’s just holding back their potential for greatness.

  • Engage in Every Conversation With Purpose

Have you ever found yourself chatting with a waiter or an Uber driver and thought, “This person has the hustle I need on my team”? Every interaction is an opportunity to recruit. From casual conversations to formal networking events, every dialogue could lead you to your next roofing sales star. So next time you’re out and about, remember: recruitment never sleeps.

  • Look Beyond the Low-Hanging Fruit

While job boards like Indeed can be a resource, they’re often not where the cream of the crop is found. The real gems are those not actively seeking new opportunities but are open to them when presented in the right light. Instead of waiting for talent to come to you, go out and find it. Is that waiter making minimum wage? They could be your next top seller; they don’t know it yet.

  • Become the Ultimate Networker in Roofing Sales

Top talent isn’t found through passive recruitment strategies; it’s discovered through active engagement and networking. Your next roofing sales superstar might be your cousin, neighbor, or friend’s friend’s friend. The key is to constantly be on the lookout, always ready to share the incredible opportunities your team offers.
