Startup cost saving ideas

  1. Make Use Of Free Online Marketing Tools

Due to the advent of the Internet, there are a multitude of new and inexpensive ways to market your new landscaping company. Some of these are very simple, and they consist of things like going on Google Business and setting up a page, which will allow people who live in your local area to see your business on the top of the list. This is a solid method, but it works best if you create a free blog using a platform such as Weebly or WordPress. For the best results, you can pay a few bucks a month to register your own URL. This blog should consist of pages that describe your services along with a little about you and your business. On top of that, you should post one or two articles every month that talk about your services. This is one of the best ways to market, and if you choose not to register a URL, it is completely free.

  1. Plan Very Thoroughly

Take the time to plan the landscaping project you are about to embark on. Speak with the client and get a good idea of the scope and scale of the project, along with what you’ll need.

  1. Spend Time Estimating The Cost

This ties directly into the planning phase. Take the time to estimate the costs and look up various prices, while adapting your estimate as you do. Take into account material pricing, the costs for your employees, and other such charges.

  1. Put This Estimate In The Job Contract

Show this estimate in the contract, and then make it very clear that if, for whatever reason, they need to go above this estimate, the client must pay extra. Your time is valuable, so this very important. In some states, the law enforces these additional costs.

  1. Rent Commercial Trucks – Instead Of Buying

Renting a commercial truck saves a great deal of money in the long run, due to the expenses that come when purchasing trucks. Rental companies geared for commercial companies needs have created a great system for allowing you to easily, quickly rent trucks. Also, many even deliver them on-site, then have them picked up!

  1. Shop Around For The Best Prices

Take the time to find a variety of different suppliers. This will enable you to discover the best prices for your work and, if you take the time to do this well, you’ll be able to save quite a bit of money. In the long term, you’ll know where to get the right materials for a good price.

  1. Reuse And Recycle Materials

You can do this rather easily, if you take the time to cover your materials and tools. This may take a bit of extra time, but it allows you to save a fair amount of money. If you need to dispose of materials, find recycling options that will, almost always, be cheaper than the standard disposal methods.

  1. Build Your Network

Using local business networks and the National Association Of Landscape Professionals, you can easily find people who are in the same business. If you get to know them, they will help you find clients and good jobs. In today’s world, your network is one of the most important things to focus on creating.
