What’s It Take To Become An Expert At Residential Service Contractor Marketing?

Some rules say that it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. We’ve been working on contractor marketing for over 15 years at 40 hours per week. Let’s look at the math (based on just one person):

One year

52 weeks X 40 hours = 2080 hours

15 years experience

15 years X 2080 hours = 31,200 hours

So we can kick back and rest on our expertise?

Of course not! Just as you understand the pace of change in your industry, we’re in marketing and it is constantly evolving.  Internet marketing alone requires daily reading to stay ahead of what’s hot and what’s new with the search engines.
