The past few years have brought many challenges. Plumbers, HVAC service providers, and other contractors strive to ensure their customers have water, heat, and a safe place to live. Yet supply chain issues continue to frustrate both contractors and consumers. These challenges won’t last forever, and those who weather the storm will become stronger on the other side. Why not think proactively? Take some time this fall to evaluate your business and devise a plan for success in 2023. Start by discussing your current contractor insurance needs with your experienced Mississippi broker.
6 Tips to Increase Your Opportunities for Success in 2023
Typically, we think of goals for a new year at the end of the current one. However, the past couple of years has proven that nothing is forever. Thinking ahead will give you the best opportunity to enjoy more success later. Here are a few tips to get you started:
- Review the year: Your company has felt the pain of waiting on parts from slow supply chains. In light of this and other frustrations, what has worked and what hasn’t? Do you need to change your current operations to ensure you have parts available? Ask your employees for their insight. They’re out in the field and know what’s working and what isn’t.
- Consider new revenue streams: Maybe you have only ever handled the framing of houses. Are there other areas you could include? For instance, you could lay foundations too. As a landscape contractor, you might offer quarterly cleanups for your client base to help them keep their properties beautiful and safe.
- Expand your vendor pool: As it gets more challenging for you to find parts and supplies, your vendors are also having a challenging time. Now is the time to establish additional vendor relationships for your supplies and equipment.
- Make the most of your marketing efforts: People still need their leaky faucets and roofs fixed, and their furnaces maintained. In short, they need quality contractors and you need to ensure they can find you. You can research ways to utilize social media and consider adding articles to your website. If you don’t have a website, it’s a good idea to get one going.
- Network with others in the field: Find ways to expand and enrich your network. It can help to join professional groups and develop new relationships while strengthening existing ones.
- Talk with your agent about contractor insurance: Do you have enough insurance to protect your business? Your preferred broker can assist you with obtaining the best coverage to keep you protected.
