Increasing Sales in your Trades or Services Business

If you are looking to increase your sales in a trades or services business, it’s important that you take time to reflect on what is working and not working.


The first step is to take an honest look at the way you’re marketing.


Next, figure out how much time and money need to be invested for the desired return on investment (ROI).


Once these two things have been determined, then focus on implementing strategies that will produce positive results such as setting goals based on your budget and creating a new lead generation campaign.

Here are some quick tips to get your phone ringing or your website collecting inquiries: 


  1. Identify your target market
  2. Create a marketing plan to reach these customers
  3. Offer special deals for new customers and referrals 
  4. Have an online presence – create social media accounts, add links on websites, etc 
  5. Invest in equipment that will make you more productive and efficient (i.e., printers, scanners, laptops, tablets) 
  6. Look at your operations and introduce client tracking software to gauge your overall business health (it is easier than it sounds)
  7. Jot down LEAD measures (like outbound activity, networking, marketing, blogging you will do) and stick to them
