Are you an experienced handyman looking to make more money?
In order to stand out and beat the competition, you need to take your handyman services to the next level. It might be difficult to do if you haven’t updated some of your tactics.
If you’re ready to make more money, here are 5 tips to show you how.
1. Get Your Business Online
Customers these days do all of their service searches online. If your handyman services only get clients via word of mouth, you could be missing out on a lot of clients.
Making a website for your services will ensure customers find you and it will bring more potential clients without only resorting to word of mouth.
Make sure you also create a Google My Business Listing, so when customers search for a handyman in the are your business pops up.
2. Advertise The Repairs
Let’s face it, customers don’t necessarily search for handymen when they need repairs done.
Most people will search for fence repair, ceiling repair, garage door repair, and more. If you want to stand out, make sure you use those keywords. Advertising your services rather than your profession will help generate more buzz.
If people don’t know what a handyman really does, you should tell them what you can do.
3. Never Say No to Small Jobs
After you’ve been in business for a long time, you might be hesitant to take small odd jobs. Not only will you not know where they may lead.
The customer might want to work with you again or recommend you to friends.
If you want to make more money, you should never say no to small jobs. Besides if the job is small and it takes no time, you’ve just made yourself some fast cash.
4. You Need The Right Clients
If you want to make more money as a handyman, you need the right clients. You take your job seriously and you want customers who do as well.
Clients who only care about how much you charge are not the right clients. These clients will go to the next person as soon as you raise your prices.
A good client will care more about the quality of your work rather than what you charge.
5. Charge for Professional Services
In order to make more money, don’t undersell your work. Charge accordingly as anyone offering a professional service would.
If you have all the tools to perform a professional job such as claw hammer, brass deflector, socket wrench, and tape measure, then you need to charge accordingly.
Also, customers will see you’re charging for fair professional services and will find you credible and professional.
