handy man tools to grow business

If growing a Handyman business is a priority for 2016, we’re here to help. At Breezeworks, we work with Handyman all over the US and have learned from some of the best  (Rent-A-HubbyArbuckle & Sons, and Travis Farnes to name a few) about what it takes to grow a successful handyman business.

New Customers

Getting the phone to ring is the fist step to earning new customers. Keeping the phone ringing is the best way to continue growing. From the calls it’s a numbers game; converting calls to appointments, appointments to estimates, and estimates to jobs.

This process is a form of art and it’s perfected over time. Using Breezeworks to manage appointments, contacts, and invoices can help speed up things up. Here are some of the best online channels (with examples) to find new customers:

We’ve seen  these profiles filled out well by adding pictures of previous work, a contact number (cell phone works great), and a few sentences about the work we specialize in. It’s also important to get that first five-star review. This will help your profile start to show up on these review sites.

High-Quality Work

From our experience, the best way to earn referrals and repeat business is by doing great work. After finishing any job, we ask our new customers to keep us in mind for future work. We also give them a few business cards to pass along as well. One resource worth reading up on is the psychology behind word of mouth advertising.

Five-Star Reviews

Whether we like it or not, online reviews are a new customer’s first impression of our business. Reviews are also the main ranking signal on sites like Yelp, Angie’s List, and Thumbtack. Knowing this, we do our best to provide each customer with a five-star experience. The Breezeworks app helps us do this automatically without any additional work on our end.

A few interesting resources related to reviews:

Lifelong Customers

We approach each new appointment as an opportunity to earn a customer for life. We’ve learned that we can do more appointments each day when serving repeat customers. We use Breezeworks CRM to maintain all of our customers in a database so that we can serve them easily in the future.

    Legit movers offer basic legal responsibility and infrequently refer you to agents for additional full value
    safety. Fort Lauderdale Movers have these instruments the place most else don’t.
    During and after set up, use window followers, room air conditioners, or other mechanical ventilation gear
    you may have put in in your own home, to exhaust fumes to the outdoors.
    Use on-site composting for easy soil enchancment.
    Sunshine, water, and good soil are the fundamental requirements, but when you actually need to
    go the additional mile, you’ll be able to coax your garden into producing prize-profitable specimens with just a little work and some
    gardening know-how. Gather up outdated leaves, livestock manure, and/or
    green vegetable scraps and allow them to lie in or beside the garden till they rot, then work them
    into the soil. Chrysler Division fared effectively
    in the quick prewar years, rising to tenth place on over 92,000 units for 1940, then to 8th for ’41 with nearly 162,000.
    Much of this was owed to a now very broad range of models and costs.
    Ford also started promoting “Lifeguard Design” safety options, equipping all fashions with dished steering wheel, breakaway rearview mirror, and crashproof door locks; padded dash and sunvisors value $sixteen additional,
    manufacturing unit-put in seatbelts $9.
