Every Contractor Could Use Something To Better Their Business
Because every business is different, there is no one size fits all solution for business success. You may need some or all of our services just depending on how developed your business is, and what procedures and processes you already have in place. By working with Peddyl, you will learn how to grow your business as well as become more productive while reducing costs, increasing revenue, and maximizing profit margins.
In the 21st century it is essential for every business to have a website. Having one enables you to showcase your business to customers. On a website customers can learn about who you are, what you do, the products and/or services that you offer, and other details that make your business distinct.
No matter what your niche is, your potential clients will look for you to have a website and they are going to expect to see examples of your previous projects. So, if your business does not have a website, or has a website that looks outdated, it says that you don’t take things seriously. Without good web design your business is nothing more than an advertisement.
One of the industries that Peddyl works with is residential contractors. Whether you are a landscaper, patio builder, roofing contractor, or siding installer, Peddyl can help your business reach its full potential through the use of our provided services.
Marketing is an important aspect of any business, especially in contracting. Marketing can be used to target specific people and areas, advertise, generate new leads and keep up with existing clients. Basically, marketing is essential in order to reach and keep reaching your targeted audience.
Marketing also assists with brand awareness and popularity. When people recognize your sign, logo or wording from advertisements, they are likely to keep you in mind for any services they need that your business offers. Your business is more likely to come up in general conversation also if you try to bring as much attention to your business as possible. This generates new clients through word of mouth advertising. Everywhere people look is an opportunity to market your company in the form of internet ads, billboards, events and more. Peddyl can assist in the set-up and maintenance of all your marketing needs.
Lead generation works by keeping up a steady flow of prospective new clients for your business. You can’t begin to secure a contract without finding the clients first, and lead generation from Peddyl can put you in contact with consumers looking to remodel or rebuild their properties. By having access to generated leads, you can advertise for specific demographics and know who is more or less interested in your services, even if the leads don’t end up becoming official clients.
Leads are also important for keeping track of which prospective clients are worth following up on, and which you should leave alone. Peddyl’s professional lead service has the ability to weed out unqualified clients, such as clients that are too far away for service or consumers looking for a service or product that you don’t offer. This ensures both parties on the client and contractor end of the deal aren’t wasting their time.
Surprisingly, contracting businesses often secure contracts for work off-site. Call centers are crucial to making sure your company doesn’t miss any leads for new building or construction opportunities. A call center allows your business to be available for prospective clients, even when you’re busy with other aspects of your business besides customer service.
In addition to providing prospective clients with yet another avenue you can be reached, besides online and in person, call centers also handle both in-bound and out-bound calls. This means that the work of callbacks, rescheduling and confirmation is behind you. Your call center agents can receive in-bound calls with general questions about your services, as well as call back clients with answers to follow-up questions or more specific pricing.
As a contractor it is essential for your company to have finance. Some homeowners do not have the funds saved up to make large home improvements. Meanwhile, others may prefer to keep their savings padded. Offering financing services gives you an extra tool to close the deal, as well as provide you with an advantage over other businesses that don’t offer these type of services.
Many contractors turn to financing to pay for project expenses to cover their costs until payment can begin rolling in. Not everyone has $10,000 laying around to spend on home improvements for items such as a furnace or air conditioner. Financing allows your customers to pay a large investment over time. Financing can be a win-win for both you and your clients, you grow your sales, meanwhile your customers are getting their home repairs and maintenance they need at a monthly cost that works best for them.
As a contractor, outside sales is a must-have for your business to grow and succeed. Not only can outside sales reps secure contracts during in-home consultations for construction, they can also take measurements, show material or building samples, and answer questions that come up during client meetings. For example, a customer might be stuck on what color countertops to order for their kitchen, or what siding material makes the most sense for the climate that they live in.
An outside sales rep can come to your client with physical samples to give your clients a better idea of how to make their home exactly how they envision with the materials that best fit their budget and living area. Having an outside sales department also gives contractors an aggressive way to penetrate a very competitive market. By sampling products and giving in-person consultations before starting a job, you solidify a more personal relationship with your clients and ensure that they will speak highly of your professionalism and customer service, as well as your handy work. This creates an overall better reputation for your company, which promises new business leads through advertised word-of-mouth or reviews.
