The Spec Shaman Book
The Spec Shaman: How To Get Your Building Products Specified is the must have book for business owners, sales and marketing staff, building product reps, and movers and shakers in the industry. The product specification strategies in the book will provide building product manufacturers the critical tools and knowledge necessary for success. Our team explores getting on the design team, project phases, effective technical assistance, mistakes to avoid, and LEED v4 specification strategies. The experts provide the most concise and cost-effective method to get products specified.
The Spec Shaman book has been described as the most effective resource for building product manufacturers in decades. Instead of “reactionary” selling, our team teaches product reps to get involved in the project early and get in the specification before it is issued. Industry leaders have praised the book for its insight and specification strategies.

“In these days of constant change in construction project delivery methods, most lose sight of the fact that every project begins with a specification. Always has, always will. Leave it to the Spec Shamans, Ron, Craig, and Brad, to shed new light on the lost art of consultative selling on the part of a well- trained product rep.” Warren Barber Manager, Technical Marketing
