Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions to growing an existing handyman business. I do work for a few General Contractors as well as having my own client base.
My priority this year (only the 2nd year in business) is to build my own client base and thus, grow through referrals from them. I have no issue with General Contractors at all, in fact, without them, I think most homeowners would experience a lot more horror stories then they do now.
I have a lot of experience in a great many trades and there are many occasions where I sub out some of the work to improve the timeliness of the job and, more importantly, the quality of the workmanship. I believe I am on the right track but just looking for advice to give my business a boost.
What type of work do you specialize in? My company focuses on business development & management for the home contracting industry. Some of the main areas we focus on are hardwood refinishing and installation including other types of floor and stair case applications.
If you would like we can setup a brief phone chat sometime and I'd be happy to discuss some strategies with you.
Let me know,
I am in a similar position. 10+ years in construction working for others. Only started on my own last year and I have a few customers that I recruited and grew from referrals. Now I am looking to sub for others or form partnerships etc. I am networking with other local businesses etc. But I am looking for more. I have a web site showing the projects over the past year as well as some of the projects I worked on as an employee. I am currently a licensed and insured Mississauga Renovator. Part of my business plan is to form alliances with others. Any takers?
