To win more business, you need to stand out from the crowd
Many members get work through recommendation which is probably the best form of marketing there is, but there are still plenty of things that you can do to make your company stand out from the rest.
Recent statistics show that only 50 percent of builders have a website and less than 14 percent try flyers or mailings to drum up new business, instead the industry relies heavily on referrals.*
‘ULTIMATE’ PACKS FROM HBXL HELP BUILDERS EXPAND
A series of new software packs from HBXL will give FMB members a distinct advantage over competitors.
As with any recession, someone else’s misfortune creates opportunities for others and those builders who have managed to ride out the downturn should be building on their position and taking advantage of gaps in the market by using professional software packages to cut costs and win more business.
The new EstimatorXpress Ultimate combines HBXL’s EstimatorXpress Total Toolkit edition with a selection of new bonus packs, free training and enhanced support services.
