  • What do your competitors have?

    What does your next closest competitor have that your company does not? Or what do they have that you admire and strive to achieve?

    new trucks and equipment(they have been in it alot longer though) also one guy owns a hydroseeder and a ton of tractors, skid steers and dump trucks. I would love to have at least a tractor or a skid and a dump truck. I have been doing a lot of mulch jobs and I could get more done if I didn't have to have mulch delivered somewhere everyday. I could just buy a bunch of mulch dump it at my house and go around every couple days and knock out two/three jobs a day.

      Competitors

      A very tough question. Only one of my competitors has a website. Two are listed on Google Maps (not the one with the website). I checked county records and none have a license (I guess I spent $321.00 for mine).

      The one with a website (a one page site), offers complete lawn services, roofing, siding, replacement windows, and general handyman services.

      The local newspaper has a block ad for one.

      I received 6 calls today! Right now, I'm a little fearful of growing faster than I might be able to properly service. My goal was 50 jobs and I have 21 now. We have had a week of solid rain and the grass has started growing with a vengeance. I get my replacement vehicle Monday and am already considering another and employees.

        If your the only guy in town who is license I would take that and run with it. Advertise it everywhere.

        When it comes to hiring...when i started having a bit to much work than I could handle by myself, I hired a full time helper. He is actually a part timer because the two of us get jobs done quicker than I could by myself. So I have only been working him 25-30 hrs per week. I guess my point is: when you get too busy hire a part timer first and see if that helps you enough...if not then hire him full time!

        Just a suggestion
