Eakman Construction Company / Seattle
2019 Revenue: $7.2 million
Remodeling activity: I see remodeling activity continuing to increase for the foreseeable future. In Seattle, one of the country’s biggest tech hubs, there’s not enough property, so the houses that were built here in the early 1900s to 1930s need to be remodeled desperately.
Social media: I believe wholeheartedly that social media is the cheapest and best way to advertise. We spend almost all of our marketing budget on content creation. It’s not often that people call and want us to build them a house because they saw us on Instagram. That’s not the goal. But when an architect tells a client about us, that client can follow us on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, or TikTok. When they sit down with us, they know who we are. Social media builds their confidence and legitimizes our company. That’s the goal.
