First Impressions: A Painter’s Perspective

They say that you only get one chance to make a first impression. What do you think? Does that expression hold true in business? In friendships? In romance? A good impression does not guarantee a high-dollar sale or a successful romance, but it can definitely get things started in the right direction! On the other hand, a poor first impression can quickly destroy any hopes you had. There is still some hope – a bad first impression can be corrected – but it takes a lot more work to correct a bad start than it does to begin well in the first place.

How Are First Impressions Relevant to a Painting Company?

Our desire is that our clients, whether residential or commercial, have a positive first impression of us. That includes several aspects:

  • A professional, tidy, modern, easy-to-navigate website
  • Responsive office staff who are timely, polite communicators
  • Helpful, low-pressure estimators who look to win over long-term clients, not quick sales

We believe that putting our best foot forward will give our clients confidence that we can also help them look their best!

Helping Homeowners Make a Good First Impression

Exterior painting is the most important aspect of creating a positive opinion when people come to your house. This is the curb appeal that realtors talk so much about, the view that guests are met with when they approach your home. To make a positive impression, your exterior painting needs to be fresh, modern, stylish, and well-maintained. To help keep your home exterior looking great between exterior paint jobs, we recommend annual pressure washing.

The front door is part of your exterior painting, but it deserves a special mention. Painting your front door is a quick, easy, inexpensive job, and it is worth making it beautiful and colorful.

Once your guests are inside the house, they will typically be in a foyer or hallway, and their first stop will probably be the living room or kitchen. This is where interior painting needs to begin, so that your home feels fresh and stylish. You also want to make sure your most-used bathroom is attractively painted, and also your guest room, if they will be spending the night.

Interior painting provides you with nearly limitless opportunities to customize your house, making it a reflection of your tastes and your personality.

Helping Business Owners Make a Good First Impression

As a commercial painting company, A.G. Williams is often called upon to help businesses look their best. This might involve condos, restaurants, schools, churches, retail stores, corporate offices, or nearly any kind of commercial or professional building. In these commercial settings, there are two main groups of people that you want to consider when you paint.

The first group that you need to think of is your clients. For them, a good first impression is vital. You need fresh, attractive branding, a clean, up-to-date exterior paint job, clear signage, and bright, professional interior painting.

Your employees spend more time than anyone else in your facility, and their satisfaction is important, as it helps them do their best at their jobs. While the “first impressions” types of painting aren’t necessarily relevant to them, the places where they spend time should be kept attractive and in good repair. This could include offices, conference rooms, lunch rooms, bathrooms, and so on. A creative, pleasant work environment will promote creative, pleasant workers!
