I am a construction superintendent building custom homes in southern California. Been doing this for more than 3 decades at this point. I've developed skills with Sketchup that I want to market to other general contractors engaged in very high end custom home construction. The 3D models I can offer are more than simply showing a rendering of a room to a client. I am modeling complete structures, all of the structural elements, along with systems such as HVAC, mechanical etc. I've not seen anyone else doing this. Well, the structural engineer generally does a model, but it doesn't take into account finishes etc, so its not as accurate as need be. With my 30 plus years of field experience coupled with my Sketchup modeling skills, I can offer custom home builders a way to actually "see" what they're going to be building and expose a lot of potential problems long before they are built and become costly to retrofit.
So much for the background - I need someone to figure out a way to market this to the general contractors that it would benefit and sell my services. I want a select, very high end clientele. These homes have construction budgets in the millions of dollars, so a relatively small amount spent on my model will put the builder way ahead of the game; particularly when its not uncommon for an owner to spend three, four or more hundred thousand dollars on plans from an architect that have a host of errors waiting to be discovered during course of construction.
My prospective clients, I suspect, will come from sources like Houzz. General contractors are a suspicious and mostly old fashioned lot, so they will have to be shown and sold. I don't think SEO will work because they wouldn't even know they should be searching for something like this. I think direct email marketing, maybe ads taken on particular websites catering to general contractors, and probably print ads. I'm looking to find a select group that sees the value, I don't want to be giving this ability away.
Sales and marketing is not my strong point and never has been. I need someone with the natural sales talent.
Here's a link to a 4 minute promo vid I put together showcasing the idea. The production values are bad, its too long and I have someone working on a better version now. I have a business name and logo. I'm looking for someone to tie it all together into a profitable package.
