Using the HVAC Flat Rate to Stay Afloat

It’s a recovering economy and many of us are struggling to stay afloat. Contractors and business owners are among the hardest hit groups. To stay afloat, being creative by up-selling products and services is a key initiative your business can benefit from; however this process can be greatly simplified by utilizing a menu with your HVAC flat rate pricing.

There may be things out of your control such as the recession, financial policy changes, and market swings that are beyond your control; but are you making some common mistakes as well? Can you also learn from the mistakes of others? What are other business owners doing to remain afloat right now?

Logistical Problems

You may have spread yourself thin in terms of the capital and assets you have at your disposal or in terms of the jobs you have undertaken. To put it bluntly, you may have bitten off more than you can chew. You could have expanded recently or have diversified without the necessary tools, knowhow, or wherewithal.

Putting more money in your bank would immediately help lessen your load. Imagine how much better it would be if you could focus on the quality of service instead of the quantity of service. Don’t make any unrealistic promises, choose your customers with care and let your technicians put a menu of HVAC flat rate prices to good use when they are out on call.

Not Being Organized

Are your accounts up to date? Are you making the best use of the assets you have at your disposal? Is the right person doing the right job in your organization? Do you have sufficient inventory and capital? Are you wasting money and precious employee man hours in sales training that ultimately seems to have little or no effect upon your bottom line (training for improving technical skills would be put to better use)?

Many business owners are now using tools such as the new HVAC flat rate menu pricing to let customers make up their own mind about products and services so there is no pressure of upselling in the equation.
