4 Ways to Increase Your Construction Business and Advance Your Team
Posted by: Erika Green on January 26, 2018
When running a business, it’s important to continue to find ways that will grow your team and ultimately increase your profits. It’s no secret that relying on the consistent work from your existing clients is not enough, so as you’re planning for the new year, improve efficiency by considering the following:
Check out our rental centers
From demolition equipment and insulation blowers to snow-removing skid steers and trailers, our rental centers at The Home Depot have the right tool for any project thrown your way. Spend some time checking out our tool, truck and equipment inventory and how our services can bring convenience to a jobsite. Our rental centers can be your one-stop shop for your business, with versatile products for all seasons, all projects.
Take on more indoor jobs
To increase your revenue during colder months, consider adding on more indoor jobs like facilities maintenance or other work your team is skilled in doing. Jobs such as interior painting or commercial building insulation need completed at any point throughout the year, so keep these projects on your team’s horizon.
Installing building insulation may require use of equipment like our Genie scissor lift or JLG scissor lift, so make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment from us before getting to work. We have tools and operating tips available online or at our rental centers that will make your jobs as convenient as possible.
Improve your skills
There should never be an “off-season” when it comes to growing professionally in your trade, so it’s important to improve upon your technical knowledge.
One opportunity to grow is by attending trade shows and conferences. You can learn from seasoned professionals and network with other contractors, ultimately building your business’ credibility. In addition, you can bring back new ideas that will help you maximize efficiency year-round.
Perform a business assessment
When there may be some extra down time, take a step back and see where there is room for improvement for your business and what opportunities you can take advantage of to increase revenue.
Do you need to adjust your sales goals? Does your team need additional training? Do you need more manpower? Use the next couple months to improve how you currently conduct business.
