What They Say

  • I have been burnt in the past, so I was skeptical. My partners were certain I was falling for the same trick again. My business before Building Buddy is a fraction of what it is now. The sky seems to be the limit.

    Mick Holahan – Canetoad Constructions

  • I wanted to grow the business so that I could give up the tools and concentrate on managing the projects. To do that I needed to multiply my turnover. I am naturally cautious, but I can honestly say that Building Buddy has had my back for almost 4 years now. I would recommend their services if you want to grow your business.

    – Terry Heuser- Cooringa Homes Constructions

Most Builders Get More Inquiry than They Realise

Understanding Why Will help You  Multiply Your Sales

  • They fail to recognize the possibility of a new project because it involves too many obstacles they don't feel ready to tackle
  •  They May be unable to tackle these issues because of time constraints
  • Because the Customer does not have all the relevant information for the project ready. Sometimes they don't even have a design

We know you can manage the sales you are making. We know you can do all the necessary work yourself. We also know you cannot grow your business beyond the ceiling imposed by your lack of time and resources.

Leverage your skills and multiply your sales in the next 12 months. Get in Touch now to find out how

There are many things you can do to grow your business;

  1. Spend More Time Marketing
  2. Get more Sales
  3. Increase your margin.

But the single most important thing you can do to grow your business is to sell more to your preferred customer type. This can be described as

  1. Nail you Niche - Be a builder who specializes. Find a niche and become an expert in that niche.
  2. Develop a steady stream of Leads
  3. Understand the costs so you can make sure you are mining this niche in a profitable manner. You cannot deliver a proper service to your customers if you don't make money doing so. If your customers don't understand that; find new customers.

Let's deconstruct this for a moment. If you have a minimally functional building business, you would be doing between 1-3 new home projects per year, or several minor renovations per year. let's just call that average.

If you are already doing some work, and have the sense to place prominent signage in front of the project; people in the market for a similar project will notice it. The market tens to work that way. 100's of people may see the project, but only those interested in building a similar home will take notice.
