We have survived another winter.
If you own a lawn care company, winter is sometimes tough to get through. If you live in a northern state you can offer snow removal services. If you live in Florida lawns need constant care. However, unless you are able to make money during the winter months, you are probably in desperate need of immediate cash flow.
Whether you are just starting your lawn care business or you are hoping to increase your business and make more money in 2011 than you did last year right now (springtime) is the time to start acquiring customers and bidding on contracts for the upcoming lawn care season. Customers are ready to get their lawns cleaned up. Starting your business RIGHT NOW will give you a jump on the competition.
One of the problems we see with new lawn care business owners is that they do not know how to price their services. Sometimes, new guys think the only way to gain customers is by charging less money than their competitors. Undercutting the competition might seem like a good way to get customers but it is also a good way to put your lawn care company in jeopardy.
Estimating lawn care prices is a skill that doesn’t come easy for many lawn care business owners. If you find yourself underbidding and losing money on too many of your lawn care jobs, watch this quick video and consider purchasing the lawn care business program from “Start A Lawn Care Business” The program is jam-packed with information and business tools to help you start (and expand) your successful lawn care business.
