Default Commercial Account Templates

I was just wondering if anyone had any commercial marketing templates that they could share with me. So far all my accounts are residential, but I would like to expand by taking in new commercial accounts.

What would be you goal with such a marketing template?

I think the reason why you don't see commercial marketing templates on here like residential ones is because they differ in how they are approached.

With commercial, it seems you wont get anywhere sending them a flyer or door hanger. Instead you need to find the contact person and get in touch with them. Find out when they accept bids and find out what they want bidded on.

Does this help?

If you want a quick response, basically each business handles it differently and you have to find the contact person at each location and ask them.

If you want to read some detailed information.

Here is the section of my blog that deals with commercial customers and it will help you quite a bit.

Let me know how this works out.
