Is Your Construction Business . . .
Running You into the Ground?
See if this sounds familiar to you?
You long for your construction business to be successful, but you’re not there yet, and that means you have no choice but to keep working long, hard hours.
The economy, customers, vendors, employees and just the act of paying your day-to-day bills seems to overwhelm you making you toss and turn at night, losing precious sleep.
You feel like you’re walking around with a big, fat target on your back!
So, like 98% of owners of construction businesses you keep banging your head against a brick wall trying to survive and thrive while watching your hard-earned dollars slip through your fingers.
You take on more work at lower prices, yet the money after the job is done that you need to stay ahead of the game still eludes you.
It seems at times . . . hopeless . . . as if you were a hamster running pointlessly nowhere in his circular exercise wheel.
You realize you need help, but you’re cautiously hesitant to get it. You think you can’t afford it. You’re afraid you won’t understand. You feel you don’t have the time. Nevertheless, you hope that you’ll find that ‘magic pill’ that will provide the firewall that will stop you from getting hammered from your business.
You pray that things will get better, that the ‘next job’ will be your payday.
At the same time, you’re painfully aware of the well-hidden land mines that lay in wait for you along the road ahead.
The truth is, you feel like one bad step and you could become road kill!
You wonder why this is happening to you.
The truth is that it is not all your fault. You had the desire and technical knowledge to become a contractor but no one ever gave you the business knowledge to succeed.
Research shows that 98% of contractors suffer the most with these two business problems.
Sales – The majority of contractors either relies on referrals or waits for the phone to ring. This is okay in a robust economy but when a slowdown occurs, you lose market share. To offset this, you need to market your business and your services, but you need to do it correctly.
Profit – The real reason so many contractors fail to make any real money is because of their markup. Your markup cannot be a bogus number; you must calculate it according to your needs and goals, otherwise insufficient margins are slowly killing your business.
In most construction businesses, there is a 20 to 50% untapped revenue waiting to be captured and driven into the owner’s pockets!
That’s true. The average contractor doing around 1 million in sales is leaking over $100,000 a year! That is because they lack the systems, processes and procedures in their businesses that tie all the loose ends together, making the business more efficient, productive and profitable.
The real killer is that most contractors won’t get the help to capture that money. Instead, they let it slip through their fingers, year after year.
Let me ask you a question.
If you could invest $25,000 and have it give you a return of $97,000 within a year or less, would you do it?
If you’re thinking of course I would, then . . .
