Get more work with a memorable phone number
Branding is the essence of every company. How you choose to brand your company says everything about you, your employees, your customers, and your presence within the industry. Marketing has never been more important, especially with the challenges we face today; every company needs to focus on ways to improve its marketing and get in front of its customers in better ways than the competition. The 800 PAVEMENT Network offers tremendous opportunity to all contractors in the pavement maintenance industry.
The 800 PAVEMENT Network was founded in 2005 by Mike Musto, CEO of U.S. Pavement Services, Inc. After branding the 1-800-PAVEMENT phone number on all the company’s trucks, job signs, equipment, and printed literature, Mike saw his business triple as a direct result of his 1-800-PAVEMENT phone number. With that, U.S. Pavement Services became the founding member of the 800 PAVEMENT Network. More than 15 years later, the network has grown to more than 275 pavement professionals and generates more than $1.4 billion in total combined sales while employing roughly 8,000 people.
For most, the key to the group’s growth has been unleashing the industry’s most powerful and effective marketing tool: an easy-to-remember, toll-free phone number that is exclusive to your company in your area of service. It is, perhaps, the best way to grow your business and generate more leads.
It is one number with endless opportunities!
Easy to remember
Would you rather have your customers remember a 10-digit number or a simple, toll-free number that resonates with your company name? We have toll-free numbers to choose from, all related to asphalt, pavement, sealcoat, concrete, blacktop and striping. Collectively we generated over 50,000 calls in 2020 — that’s 50,000 leads for all our members. You will own the exclusive rights to the toll-free number of your choosing. That means you can put that number on your trucks, job signs, billboards, and any marketing material you want to use.
By joining the 800 PAVEMENT Network you get a point of contact that your customers see and easily remember. They do not need to write it down; they simply remember 1-800-ASPHALT (or 1-800-BLACKTOP) and think of you every time they need work done. Perhaps best of all, it’s affordable; Only one call can pay for the entire year!
Not only does this number offer your customers the ability to remember you — using a memorable vanity phone number gives you a competitive edge and separates you from your competition instantly!
But a bottom line-altering phone number isn’t all you’ll get from membership in the 800 PAVEMENT network. Instead, you can count on a business development relationship with our national sales team, nationwide support and exclusive access to equipment and goods. In other words, we’ll help you get more work, and give you access to the tools you need to knock it out of the park.
The 800 PAVEMENT Network has partnered with some of the industry-leading providers of both products and services. We have companies like SealMaster, General Motors, TRUX, Sunbelt Rentals, Sherwin Williams, Pavement Soft, and 10 other vendors that offer huge savings to all network members. Many of our vendors have had a lot of success with our network members because of the buying power we bring to the table. Collectively, we sold more than 16 million gallons of sealcoat, 4 million gallons of traffic paint, and topped 20,000 pallets of crack sealer in 2019. That productivity made SealMaster the perfect partner as it offers up to 0.5% in rebates on all purchases made through the SealMaster catalog. Those can mean huge savings for you!
Thanks to a deep fleet of trucks (collectively, our network has more than 4,500), membership also comes with significant discounts from General Motors and TRUX. Our network is growing each year, and we continue to bring on more partners and build a stronger community. These are savings that not only help you pay for the network membership, but also add to your bottom line.
National Account work
As part of the 800 PAVEMENT Network, our members also get the opportunity to bid on projects with the National Accounts Team at U.S. Pavement Services. This group handles projects across the U.S. and Canada. We have awarded roughly $125 million in work to our network members. U.S. Pavement works with 12 of the 14 largest retailers in the U.S., which include companies such as Walmart, Target, Staples, Kohl’s, CVS, IKEA, Best Buy, and more. The 800 PAVEMENT Network gives our network members the unique opportunity to bid and perform big jobs.
You tell us the size and scope of work you are looking for, and our national team will take it from there. It’s the perfect opportunity to collaborate with the 800 PAVEMENT Network’s founding member — U.S. Pavement Services — to execute all scope of work while keeping these properties fully functional.
We hold our network members to high standards and expect every job to be completed as efficiently as possible. We have seen a lot of our members work together on a national level and be able to help each other on every project. Our Network is all about sustainable growth and development.
The 800 PAVEMENT Network is a strong, growing community built on trust, loyalty, and support. Every member can expect tremendous support and backing from the 800 PAVEMENT Network. What makes our network so special are the relationships we have within the network. We are all here to support each other, share work when we can, learn from each other, and grow together!
The network is more than just a bunch of contractors doing work; it’s a family. And as a family, we continue to look after our own and help each other in every way possible. You can always count on your fellow members — even when you travel out of state, you can connect with teammates across the nation. The point is to build a strong team and grow it.
The opportunities with the 800 PAVEMENT Network are endless, and it all starts with you becoming a part of the network by owning the rights to just one number. Our network gives you the ability to grow your business, cut costs, improve profitability, develop customer relationships and succeed in this ever-changing industry!
While the motivation for joining the 800 PAVEMENT Network may vary according to the needs of each individual Member, the four benefits of the network certainly help all members advance and succeed regardless of the situation. Everyone’s success story breeds greater success for the entire group. In this fast-paced pavement industry, it is critical to stay ahead of the curve, continue to educate and develop best practices. While the 800 PAVEMENT Network continues to grow, our goals will stay consistent: a) to help our members grow their businesses, and b) to help the industry raise standards and overall level of expertise and competence.
