Plumbing Contractors Are Using Big Business Strategies To Improve Performance

Plumbers running small businesses are now finding ways to modernize their business models and significantly improve their financial performance. It would appear that there are five key strategies for the owners to focus on.

Perth, Australia - August 13, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Like many trades, plumbing contractors have generally been seen as micro businesses within the National business community with operations largely focused on small, local geographic regions.

However, all that may now be changing.

Craig Ridley, Business Coach at YourBusinessCoachingClub said today that the plumbing industry was starting to be impacted by the disrupting trends affecting all businesses across the globe, and as a result, plumbing contractors were rapidly modernizing their business models and achieving significant improvements in their performance levels.

“Given the personal and physical nature of the plumbing industry, people have come to realize that there are lasting profits to be made from running a plumbing business” Mr Ridley said. “Newer entrants to the industry have also started to apply big business thinking to their business models with some amazing results”

In a coaching Masterclass delivered to members of YourBusinessCoachingClub, Mr Ridley presented two case studies of plumbing businesses achieving significant increases in sales and profits while making only minor improvements in their five key profit drivers.

Successful plumbing entrepreneurs are focusing on five key strategies to achieve sustainable business improvement results:

1. They are systemizing the way they find new customers and using targeted social media strategies to appeal to their perfect market segment rather than taking the old fashioned shot gun approach to their marketing efforts.

2. They are finding ways to make more than one sale a year to each customer by diversifying their product and service offerings as well as offering regular maintenance programs that provide ongoing revenue streams from existing customers.

3. They are increasing the average value of customer transactions by systemizing the way their staff find value add opportunities during each service call, and often using customer driven checklists where the full range of issues are self-diagnosed prior to the tradesman arriving to start work on the initial issue.

4. They are improving profit margins through a focus on efficient operating processes and optimizing the allocation of work to appropriately trained staff.

5. They are maintaining strong controls on overheads, and in particular the larger cost areas such as occupancy, logistics, administration and finance.

The case studies showed how one business found ways to make a 5% improvement in each of their profit drivers with the result that profit improved by close to 75%. “While not every business is capable of achieving that level of improvement” said Mr Ridley, “the strategies employed in these case studies are easily applied to any plumbing business where the owners are open to making changes to their core business model.”
