Lawn care contracts - Spring 2014

Lawn Care Contracts – Spring 2014


Spring 2014 – Make money with lawn care contracts, mowing services, landscaping.

How much money will you make with your lawn care business in 2014? The answer can be largely affected by your lawn care contract bids.

The first blades of green grass have yet to force themselves through the frosty layers of winter earth. But, just as assuredly as you know they are preparing themselves for the spring thaw, so do you also know there is going to be a ton of money to be made in lawn care once warmer weather arrives. The question is, how do you assure yourself as much money as possible before spring arrives?

The answer to that question is: Lawn Care Contracts.

Large lawn care agreements and mowing contracts are being bid RIGHT NOW. Between January 1 and April 30, preset lawn care contracts and more flexible Requests for Proposals (FRPs) are readied by large landowners (apartment complexes, industrial plants, government agencies, etc.). These large land owners are looking for good prices but they are also looking for lawn care operators who have the capability to mow large areas and provide professional level lawn care services.

Successful lawn care operators are already sniffing out lawn care and landscaping contracts by making early contact with purchasing managers.

I cannot emphasis, enough, the importance of beginning your contract bidding process early. Far too many lawn care operators wait until the last moment to begin their bidding process. There are several advantages to beginning your bidding process early.

1) Mental – Beginning your lawn care bidding process early gives you a great mental advantage over those who rush around at the last minute to develop a pricing strategy. By starting now, you will have several weeks to evaluate the size of the project, the costs involved, and your profit requirements.

2) Social (Networking) – Starting your lawn care contract bidding process allows you to become friends with purchasing managers of large organizations that need lawn care work. If they know your business practices and understand you are serious about doing the work properly, purchasing managers will often correctly use their authority to help you win the contract over lesser capable competitors.

3) Equipment Provisioning – Winning a large contract often means you will need to purchase larger lawn care equipment. By knowing your equipment needs in advance, lawn care operators can seek deals and great pricing from lawn equipment manufacturers instead of rushing to buy the equipment.

4) Manpower Hiring – Large lawn care contracts often mean you need to hire additional employees. It is better to get new hires on board early so you can properly evaluate their skills and train them to do the work properly. There is nothing worse than losing additional contracts because you don’t have available manpower to secure additional work.

Whether you are brand new to the lawn care industry or you are a seasoned pro who wants to make great money this year, I invite you to purchase our Lawn Care Business Guidebook series and Estimating software package. This professionally developed lawn care business program is jam-packed with information and business tools that will help you start and grow your own, successful lawn care business.

Leaf raking make money

Leaf Raking Business

Autumn 2013 – Make more money raking leaves this autumn than mowing grass during the summer?

If you operate a lawn care company, you have probably suffered through a long hot summer mowing grass and look forward to autumn’s cooler weather. Fortunately, leaf raking season allows you to work in cooler weather and still make great money with your lawn care business..

Leaf raking season is here and many customers are desperate to keep their yards leaf free. They are willing to pay good money for leaf management, gutter cleaning, and flower bed cleanup. Also, right now is a perfect time for fall planting and a final shrub trimming before winter arrives.

Of course, for lawn care operators in the southern U.S., lawn care work hardly pauses for cooler weather. So, there is always money to be made year-round.

If you are looking to make money this autumn, we have developed a Lawn Care Business Guidebook & Estimating Software that helps you get customers, bid contracts, and make great money with your lawn care business. The estimating software and pricing guidebook can dramatically help you make more money by showing you how to bid jobs more effectively.

lawn care estimating

Estimating Lawn Care Prices

Summer 2013 – Lawn Care Business Estimating – More money if you do it right.

 

Do you have trouble calculating a proper price estimate for your lawn care business? Proper pricing is probably the single most important factor that will help you start and operate a successful lawn care business.

Too many people starting out, or new to the business, do not know how to properly estimate their prices. They often low-ball their estimates and lose money on their lawn care jobs. Our estimating software will help you with your pricing.

During our time in the industry we have seen many lawn care businesses get started. Unfortunately, many lawn care businesses make the mistake of improper estimating. There are two common mistakes in lawn care estimating.

1) Lawn Care Companies over-estimate their prices and lose many potential customers.
2) Lawn Care Companies underestimate their prices and lose potential profit.

Overestimating your lawn care prices will drive customers away from your business. All customers (even quality, high-paying customers) will eventually determine market value for lawn care services and find a quality provider at a better price.

Underpricing might get you a lot of customers. But, if a customer is willing to pay $5 or $10 more per mow (and still be happy) why not charge more money? If 1 customer will pay $10 more per mow and you provide 30 services per year, you are LOSING $300 per customer.

Correct pricing is a balancing act. Our lawn care business guidebook includes a great section on PRICING PSYCHOLOGY that will help you determine how much money your customers are willing to pay for your services.

The Lawn Care Guidebook and Estimating software is on sale this month for less than $50.

Lawn care business owners can make good money in December if they follow a few marketing strategies. While the leaf raking season is mostly over, many lawn care customers are looking for one last grass cutting of the season. Customers want their yards looking good for the holidays.

So, even if you are in a northern state, take this opportunity to contact all of your lawn care customers to let them know you are available for pre-Christmas and holiday lawn care. You will be surprised how many of your existing lawn care customers will have you come to their property to rake the remaining leaves and give the grass one last cut (even if the grass doesn’t really need it.)

Also, don’t forget that January is the month that many businesses and government agencies bid out their lawn care work. You need to be tracking down these contracts right now. Lawn care contracts offer big money if you bid them right.

Our LAWN CARE BUSINESS GUIDEBOOK & ESTIMATING SOFTWARE: www.StartALawnCareBusiness.com/order.html will help you start and operate a successful lawn care business.

November 2012 – Leaf Raking Means Big Money To Lawn Care Business Owners

Learn how to estimate your leaf raking jobs with the LAWN CARE BUSINESS GUIDEBOOK & ESTIMATING SOFTWARE: www.StartALawnCareBusiness.com/order.html

If you have ever thought about starting a lawn care business but waited and waited and didn’t get started last summer, you might think it is too late to begin in November. You might be missing one of the biggest profit seasons of the year.

Leaf raking season is a VERY busy time for lawn care business owners. There is a HUGE amount of money to be made during November and December and you can still profit by offering leaf raking to your customers. Customers gladly pay money for leaf cleanup in their lawns but they also pay for gutter cleaning, flower bed leaf removal, and driveway clearing. We have had customers pay us exclusively to blow off their driveways each week. That’s GREAT MONEY for only a few minutes of work.

So, if you are debating getting started with your own lawn care business this month, check out our professionally develped Lawn Care Business Training Manual and Estimating Software business package. This is a HUGE business package that will help you start and operate your own successful lawn care business.
