Invest In Quality Supplies
The fact that the phrase ‘if a job is worth doing, then it is worth doing right is a cliché certainly does not make it any less true.This notion is very much applicable when it comes to gardening and landscaping businesses.
As inthe majority of other industries, the quality and standard of the equipment and/or technology one invests in for the business directly influences how well and how easily you can complete each job, both to your and your client’s satisfaction. Purchasing landscaping materials from an established and reputable landscape supply company is one of the best possible steps to take to grow your business.
Utilize Social Media
You would have had to be living under the proverbial rock not to know how influential and downright powerful social media platforms are both on a personal level and on a professional basis, and you should immediately start to invest time into cultivating your various social media channels.
Always ensure that all content you post, including every video and photograph, has your company logo and contains a link to your official website. Regularly update each platform and ensure that each post includes your contact information and any special offers you may have on that particular month.
Regularly Raise Your Prices
Obviously, this doesn’t mean simply pricing yourself out of the market just as you have your business where you want it to be; rather, it refers to the importance of building a little profit into every single gardening and landscaping job you complete.
One of the most effective and profitable ways to grow and expand your gardening company is to focus on adding value into every element of the business and then charging accordingly, especially at the times when you invest in new equipment, materials, and even new staff members.
Pay Attention to The Area You Service
Often, when the owner of a small but successful gardening and landscaping business makes the decision that it is time to start to grow and expand, they make the mistake of extending their service area to encompass a larger number of gardens.
However, perhaps surprisingly, it makes much more business sense to actually shrink your service area, especially when your business is already successful and you have built a regular customer base because of excellent word-of-mouth referrals.
The smaller your service area, the more working hours you have each day that are not wasted on traveling; imagine being in the position where you are the only landscape gardener for a whole neighborhood!
