Looking for improvements in your business? Then this book can really help you as it has for thousands of other painters in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, USA, Canada, England and even Russia. Thoroughly recommended by Dulux Australia, Master Painters Association, TAFE Colleges and individual painters, it is a source of excellent information for your business.

Whatever line of business you are in, the client must be dealt with in a professional manner and treated with the respect they deserve. Based on my book, ‘How To Become A Really Successful Painter’, this has the ‘Tradesperson’ touch to it.

This is a FREE book of numerous articles I wrote for the ‘Aussie Painters Network’ magazine which is Australia’s leading information service for the Painting and Decorating Industry. The information is highly useful for any business but it also consists of interesting stories about the History of Paint, a 16th century Warship, Russian Palaces, Canadian Murals, French Country Houses, Bathing Boxes (beach huts), and much, much more.

Different businesses make different decisions about what marketing activities to engage in, and the investment that will be made in each of these activities. The most important part for any business though, is to measure and monitor the results of these marketing activities. Trace My Business will keep a record of ALLyour clients
