Like many company owners, Kip Lee, owner of The Window Man, in Savannah, Ga., is not a fan of draws. He advises paying salespeople up front. Putting money in their pocket as soon as it's in yours, rather than dispersing it as a series of draws, "keeps the hunters hunting" (i.e., selling), Lee says. In addition, "that way they're not trying to manage the job to get you to install it as quickly as possible" so they can get the remainder of their commission. "You sit down with salespeople and they prove to you with photos and their estimates that they sold it at a proper price," Lee says, then you write a check.
Lee recalls his own days as a salesperson when "mystery Friday" would arrive. Salespeople were never completely sure how much their check was going to be for, and they often ended up disappointed. Then "they burn through leads because they're mad at the company," Lee says.

Like a lot of home improvement company owners, Kip Lee, owner of Coastal Empire Exteriors in Savannah, Ga., has been back and forth on subcontractors.The owner, whose company this year will generate about $8 million in sales of mostly sunrooms and windows, started out five years ago using subs, then switched to employees."We did that for a few months," he recalls, "then we went back."
He returned to subcontracted labor - 100% of the company's work today is installed by subs - for the simple reason that he, like many home improvement company owners, finds subs less expensive.

When you pay per job, you get jobs," Lee says.

"We are excited to bring this new service to the area," said Kip Lee, owner of Coastal Empire Exteriors."In our first five weeks we have already installed almost one million dollars worth of Outdoor Living packages."According to Lee, smart shoppers buy pools during this time of year while the prices are lower.
CEE has been in business since 2001 serving Savannah and the Low Country.Until now, they have specialized primarily in sunrooms and replacement windows.Lee discovered a need for a comprehensive pool service company in the area after soliciting many pool contractors to have a pool of his own installed."I was very surprised and disappointed in the service I received," said Lee."I had several no shows, and those who did come out were unable to tell me about their company or product."
From this experience, Lee decided to launch a new division within his own company."I assumed that there were many people out there who were just like me and wanted to be able to purchase a package deal from a credible contractor so they would not have to concern themselves with details such as where to get their concrete or what electrician to call."Apparently Lee was correct.In CEE's first week their Pool and Outdoor Living division took orders for an amazing 21 pools.
The widespread interest in CEE's new Pool and Outdoor Living division is likely due to their reputation as a reputable company known for their credible contractors, ethical staff, and quality products and services."CEE offers a great value package, financing, a lifetime warranty, and best of all, you don't need to know anything about pool installation," said Lee.
