What Makes DreamMaker Stand Out in the Remodeling Industry?

In today's world, word-of-mouth is the strongest marketing tool there is. Most customers decide on a product or services based on a recommendation from a friend/family member or from a review they read online. As a business owner, it's crucial to understand how customer satisfaction can affect your revenue and profits.

High Customer Satisfaction Rating

High customer satisfaction is what drives an increase in profit and revenue. Qualified Remodeler states that “An InfoQuest study found that ‘a totally satisfied customer’ yields 2.6 times more revenue than a ‘somewhat satisfied customer’ and 14 times more revenue than a ‘somewhat dissatisfied customer.’

A company that consistently satisfies its clients is often getting double the return on its investment to acquire a new customer.” Think about it – consumers, like you and me, are trying to predict the experience we are going to have with a product or service to meet our own satisfaction. We don’t want pain or dissatisfaction and we AdobeStock_58883541are willing to put in effort to avoid it. Positive reviews are your best friend when running a business because most people rely on. Because of this, you want to make sure that you give your clients a positive experience so that your reviews represent a good customer experience.

“A McKinsey study found unhappy customers on average tell between nine and 15 people about their negative experience, and 13 percent of unhappy clients tell more than 20 people. Bad news travels faster than good news, especially with the Internet. Customer satisfaction therefore is a good way to play offense and to help a business grow, and it provides a solid defense against faster-traveling negative word-of-mouth.” (Qualified Remodeler’s, How to Win with Customer Satisfaction)

Hear what our franchisees have to say about the DreamMaker franchise opportunity:

“The support from DreamMaker starts with (DreamMaker President) Doug Dwyer and his commitment to treating people right, and it just telegraphs down to everyone. I’ve never heard them say ‘no, I can’t help you with that.’ They are always willing to help and willing to spend time to help me. They are methodical, and they are very supportive. You become part of a family with them. They are interested in your life, not just your royalty fee.” — Ed Gribben, Stuart, FL


“DreamMaker has the feel of a family. Every year DreamMaker has a convention, which they call the Reunion, and the fact that they call it that gives a real insight into the mentality of the corporate team, which welcomes you warmly. There’s always a lot to talk about, and everybody has a chance to bond and discuss common issues. DreamMaker owners get to know each other on a personal level at Reunions and training sessions, and when you continue to meet with six of those people twice a year, you develop very good friendships.” — Steve Everett, Fredericksburg, VA


“Before DreamMaker, I ran my business more like an old-school carpenter, with everything done by hand. I was like a guy with a toolbox full of hand tools. With DreamMaker, I’m the same carpenter, but now I have a whole garage full of power tools. That’s how I feel about my business. There are so many tools within the DreamMaker system — so many things that have helped the way I do business. It has transformed me from a company that was barely operating paycheck to paycheck, to now being a company with profitability.” — Steve Miller, Mansfield, OH
