Making the Difference
“I think much of our competition walks into a sales call and starts spewing window film information at their prospective customer, without taking the time to ask questions and truly find out the answer to the question, ‘Why am I here?”‘ says Adam Feldman, vice president of Advanced Film Solutions in Lutz, Fla. “Armed with the answers to some key questions, we become the prospect’s ‘smart friend’ rather than salesperson, and we end up providing a solution to our customer’s problem rather than simply selling window tint.” The 2020, LLumar SelectPro National Dealer of the Year Advanced Film Solutions has displayed perseverance by overcoming several challenges.
“Some of the product backorders and shortages over the past couple of years have been an annoyance,” Feldman says. “[But] the fact that there appears to be a shortage of new people desiring to enter the trade while existing installers are ‘aging out’ poses a constant issue in getting the material installed.” Despite speedbumps, Advanced Film Solutions maintains momentum and sits in the $1 to $3.5 million revenue category after accomplishing the same feat a year prior. As success becomes constant, Feldman looks forward to building further-in person.
“We are excited to attend the upcoming San Antonio Window Film Conference and Tint-Off [WFCT], manufacturer’s dealer meetings, SEMA and other social opportunities that we have been deprived of since 2020,” Feldman adds. “You can have a tendency to feel like you’re on an island as a window tinting company, and opportunities to attend things of this nature make you feel more like you are a part of a larger industry.”
