Remodeling work is often considered to be seasonal. By the time November and December roll around there aren’t many homeowners looking to remodel their kitchen or at a bathroom. It may also take a few weeks after the first of the year to gear up with new projects. That’s why it is important that contractor generate as much business as they can during the peak months of the year. Here are some terrific ideas to help bring more customers into your contracting business:
Website with Photos
You can’t stay competitive in today’s marketplace without having a viable website. This is especially true in contracting business where a website will most likely be a potential customer’s first impression of your work. That work should be featured prominently with “before and after” photos. Every job you go on should be memorialized with photos. If you can take them, the make sure your crew does.
Put Your Old Customers to Work
The best advertisement you have for your contracting business will be your previous clients. Any one of those customers who has been totally satisfied with your work should be asked to provide a referral. If you can get them to post an online review, then that is even better. Make sure you leave them with a few extra business cards for them to give to their friends.
Keep Your Promises
The best thing you can do to expand your contracting business is to keep your promises. That means bringing a project in on time and on budget. Often there are circumstances out of your control that prevent you from honoring those promises. This is why you should build in a contingency that covers funding and calendar dates.
Support the Community
If you can sponsor a local charity or sporting team, then you’ll be getting the name of your contracting business out into the community. Not only does it help those organizations but it creates a positive image for your company. Best of all, it’s very little effort on your part.
