If you are unemployed or underemployed, a lawn care business might help you get back on your feet.
The latest job estimates are in and the federal government tells us that the unemployment rate is over 10% in serveral states according to Bloomberg.
So, how do unemployment numbers affect the lawn care industry?
In addition to our other business duties, we consult new and existing lawn care business owners. Our lawn care business office receives calls everyday from people, just like you, who want to start their own lawn care companies.
We are often asked if the global recession is affecting lawn care businesses. The recession is affecting lawn care companies but not in the way you might think.
The preliminary attitude is since people don’t have jobs, they are not paying money to have their grass cut. From speaking with hundreds of lawn care businesses around the country, this is not our experience. There are challenges with this economy but with great challenge comes great opportunity. Quite simply, you just have to know where to look for customers.
We have identified many market segments that are being underserved by the lawn care industry. I want to share one of those market segments with you right now.
Everyone knows that the housing market is in a slump right now. The real estate market’s loss is your gain. Real estate agents are scrambling to move houses and their primary concern in attracting buyers is “curb appeal.”
Real estate companies will pay you good money and ongoing income to your landscaping company if you only know how to approach them the right way. They, as well as home owners, are interested in protecting their investments and moving properties out of their inventory.
Our lawn care business program shows you how to give real estate agents what they are willing to pay for by increasing curb appeal of their properties. The lawn care package also gives a great deal of information concerning pricing guidance and how much to charge for the work you do.
If you are unemployed or if you are just looking for extra income, a lawn care / landscaping business might be the perfect business to start to get you back on your feet.
