What does it take to build and run a successful plumbing business? This video offers some tips on how a budding entrepreneur can develop and run a successful plumbing company. The first tip is that owners of plumbing companies need to be more than just plumbers. They must become familiar with accounting, marketing, and other business-oriented know-how.
Just as important is learning how to grow the business. Networking is a critical component of this as it helps position plumbing companies as the go-to place in people’s minds. It’s also a free method of marketing that creates future opportunities.
The other that you may have to pay for is SEO which helps lead people seeking plumbing services to a website. In addition to that, providing video tutorials and engaging with customers on social media helps plumbing companies create and retain customers. This should be followed up with good service and an awareness of the company’s brand. An owner should have a vision of what kind of company they are building to form an identity/brand around that vision, e.g. affordable services or exceptional problem fixers. Whatever that brand is, the employees should adequately and professionally represent it.
