Meet John Lonsbury

I founded Lonsbury Consulting with a commitment to working closely with a limited number of clients, ensuring you receive the personalized attention and expertise you deserve. With over three decades of marketing experience, I specialize in helping home services businesses, especially those with annual revenues between $5M and $15M, achieve significant growth through strategic marketing and creative content development. My expertise in crafting unique marketing strategies and my background as an Emmy-nominated creative director enable me to create content that deeply resonates with your customers.

My Promise:

I provide personal attention to each client, a roll-up-my-sleeves approach to problem-solving, and an honest, tell-it-like-it-is analysis of critical business functions and potential opportunities. You will always receive my best thinking. And, I will never work with your competition. Ever.

Experience and Specialization:

I get “it.” With 30+ years of experience, including extensive work with pest control companies, HVAC specialists, certified electricians, and professional plumbers, I bring a wealth of marketing and general business knowledge to the table. I have launched new products and new companies, helped create movements, and resurrected companies that were in their last stage of life. I believe these experiences enable me to be a quick-study of your unique situation, cut directly to your core issues, and recommend effective action steps.

I take a strategic approach to marketing problems of all kinds and I am adamant about getting the fundamentals right. At the same time, I thoroughly enjoy generating innovative new strategies and nurturing the creative process, especially for those in the pest control, HVAC, electrician, and plumbing industries.

Success Stories:

Brought professionalism to the marketing and branding efforts of a local home service company by preparing marketing plans and budgets for the first time in its 40+ year history, instituting department procedures, facilitating the company’s first annual strategic planning, and creating industry-recognized advertising. Results: 300% growth.

Launched broadcast and targeted streaming television advertising for an HVAC Company, that was venturing into television advertising for the first time. I created and produced a series of attention-grabbing TV ads that were strategically designed to stand out in a highly competitive market. We used humor to highlight unique selling points and customer testimonials. The campaign successfully raised brand awareness, leading to a significant increase in customer inquiries and service calls. This move not only differentiated the company from its competitors but also established it as a top-of-mind choice for consumers.

Rebranding and positioning for a Plumbing and HVAC Company: Led a successful rebranding effort that positioned the business as a leader in the commercial plumbing market. Enhanced online content strategy, resulting in increased engagement and a stronger brand identity.

Successfully introduced marketing automation software and developed email campaigns for an alarm installation, service, and monitoring contractor.

Developed a business plan and private placement memorandum that secured over $3 million in both institutional and angel financing for a start-up business.

Repositioned a national HVAC products brand by developing a comprehensive sales process for independent distribution channels and creating award-winning sales literature to sell the long-established product lines in a new way.
