Plus the New HVAC Business Model Called PriceFixer™
Do you hear the buzz in your ear about the evolving world of HVAC? The current landscape, as we know it, is about to dramatically change…there’s a new model in town for doing business, and with this change on the horizon, contractors are lining up for Success Day to learn exactly how they can become a part of the movement. To start, here’s an eye-opening exercise for you. Identify the largest, most successful residential service contractors across the United States. Do you recognize any similarities? The majority of these contractors at one time were clients of Jim Abrams and Terry Nicholson.
Abrams and Nicholson have a 23-year history of collaboration. They established quite a reputation for helping contractors achieve tremendous success and for building big contracting businesses before selling their company, Clockwork Home Services — the parent company of One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing and Mister Sparky — to Direct Energy for $183 million in 2010. Prior to Clockwork Home Services, in 1996 Abrams founded the HVAC industry’s first publicly traded company, Service Experts.
Some of the more seasoned contractors may remember when Abrams invented the “best practice” concept for contractors when he founded Contractors Success Group with long- time business partner John Young.
Mr. Abrams is the Dale Carnegie of HVAC success, quite simply put.
NEW CONTRACTOR GROUP
Being the business builders they are, retirement is not really in the vocabulary of these guys. Now that their non-compete agreements have expired from Direct Energy, the dynamic duo is at it again and their future shines brighter than the sun.
Today, Abrams and Nicholson are set to launch PRAXIS S-10™ Success College for Contractors. A major change is occurring in the HVAC industry. To meet the demands of consumers, they have created an innovative new HVAC business model for service contractors called PriceFixer™. It’s designed to generate highly profitable replacement sales with no salespeople, no selling technicians, and no commissions. Consumers are absolutely going to love it, hands down.
This time they are focusing on helping the smaller contractor achieve success. PriceFixer™ is tailor-made for the small HVAC contractor who needs more highly profitable replacement sales, or plumbers who want to add HVAC to their service offerings.
Small contractors battle for market supremacy against large contractors. They lack the resources to train, advertise and market like large contractors. This creates many obstacles for small contractors that threatens their ability to survive and makes it difficult to succeed.
Abrams and Nicholson are launching PRAXIS S-10™ with Jimmy Hiller, a former student of theirs and owner of Nashville, Tennessee-based Hiller Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric. When Hiller first met Mr. Abrams and Mr. Nicholson he was a struggling contractor with two employees, in debt up to his eyeballs. Hiller has since grown his company from one truck to 630 employees with 12 locations in three states as a direct result of their mentorship and application of the praxis principles for small business success taught by Abrams.
PRAXIS S-10™ is the premier Success College for Contractors and members will receive four major components:
- The knowledge that was never taught at trade school on how to manage a profitable contracting company.
- PriceFixer™, the innovative new business model that generates replacement sales with no salespeople, no selling technicians and no commissions.
- Discounts and savings on virtually any item a contractor would purchase.
- An e-training solution designed to create the world’s greatest employees.
Through the PRAXIS S-10™ principles of small business management developed by the world’s leading authority on HVAC success, contractors acquire advanced technical and business knowledge. This 10-step proven formula for success is the small contractor’s roadmap to accelerated growth and profits. The praxis principles of success have been acclaimed and studied in various business and trade publications.
The buzz is getting louder! PRAXIS S-10™ is hosting five free national events across the country called Success Day – The HVAC Contractor’s Guide to Greatness, to introduce the Success College for Contractors.
