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.

Most Builders Get More Inquiry than They Realise

Understanding Why Will help You  Multiply Your Sales

  • They fail to recognize the lead because it initially involves too many tasks they don't feel ready to tackle
  •  Sometimes it is a simple matter of not having the time to address the issues
  • Because the Customer is not ready and still does not have the necessary plan
  • They lack of clear process to help the customer through the preliminary stages of building the home
  • The customer loses confidence even though the builder is probably the perfect builder for their project

Multiply your sales in the next 12 months. Get in Touch 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.
