About the Business


There are 330,000 painting business owners in the U.S. and 99% don’t have fully professional businesses…and if we were to just give them a professional website, a social media presence and show them the basics, that entrance fee of separate checkbook, and things like that their lives would turn around in a second. Thus the service Topline Pro offers them is unique and appreciated.

You don’t have to be extreme you just have to be consistent…the biggest mistake is waiting to market till the exact moment you need more work.
