Dealer Interviews

Talking Tint With Dealers


Recently, JWF had an opportunity to sit down with a number of installers and discuss a variety of topics. The result is a series of interview video clips called "Talking Tint with Dealers" where shop owners talked candidly about how they got started in the window film business as well as important strategies and tactics used to grow sales. Each interview provides a unique perspective about the industry as a whole and the challenges facing dealers in the future.

The intent was to not make a Johnson Window Films "propaganda" piece. Instead, the goal was to allow JWF installers to speak openly about their business in order to provide possible insights and/or suggestions for fellow Johnson installers.
