The Bradburn Group – Jordan and Jay – have found they work well as business partners. They are able to use their resources and their network to provide a renovations business. They work with people who are great at what they do, people who help them grow the business. Their mission is to do what they say they are going to do.
Homeowners say they can’t get ahold of their contractors, The Bradburn Group takes that worry away.
Social media works well for them. Before and after pictures speak volumes. It is a great marketing tool. As well as having video testimonials. Credibility is everything. When it comes to a video, it’s your face. There may be complications during the renovations, but it’s how they handle those situations, that sets them apart from other companies. Mobile phones make it very easy to navigate the social media sites. People will see the posts and an opportunity comes to the business this way.
Having a passion outside of your regular business is important. Jordan previously thought he would be a firefighter as a career, and is now a volunteer firefighter. He is now part of offering firefighting training here in Ontario. There are other colleges that offer programs, but this type of program, which is an online platform, you can work at your own pace. Then, you go to the academy for testing. At the end you are certified. There is a need for this type of program here in Ontario rather than people going to the U.S. It’s a fully accredited program. It’s about all the additional programs that are offered as well to help give people that edge when applying for the firefighter jobs.
Jordan’s wife also has just opened a new business – styled – it is a hair styling service (no cuts or colour) that is licenced to serve liquor. They also offer manicures and pedicures. It is a great place for parties and social events.
