Whether you’re new to the pest control industry, have been around for years, or even decades - taking the right steps to continuously scale your business is more important than you might think. Regardless of where your business is at in its lifecycle, you should have the same goal - to boost your bottom line year-over-year.
Few things are more scary to a business owner than failing. If you’re not scaling your business, you’ll become stagnant and fail. Don’t let this happen to you! If you’re unsure how to scale your business, follow the steps below:
- See where you’re at financially. Once you’ve benchmarked where you’re at, it’s easier to determine where you want to be. Revenue - Expenses = Net Profit
- Identify pain points and invest in your business. When it comes down to it - the biggest pain points we often hear is lack of time, money and resources. Investing in resources (software, manpower, or both) will often help you overcome the pain points you’ve identified.
- Set goals and be realistic. While it’d be nice to grow by 150% the first year you’ve set goals - don’t set yourself up for failure. Set goals that work for you, whether they’re monthly, quarterly, or yearly - while they can be a stretch, make sure you can realistically achieve them.
