Networking in lawn care is important!
Why networking is important for your lawn care business
Networking is a valuable tool that can help build and strengthen your lawn care or landscape business.
You also make many friends along the way!
I have always tried to network and meet as many other business owners as possible.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many great friends and connections I have made while standing at the gas pumps at the convenience store.
Many of these connections have turned into valuable resources that I turn to all the time.
They in turn, do the same with me.
When you first meet someone, you may not have a clue that they are a realtor, business owner, or some other possible connection that could use your services.
On the flip side, they might be someone that you can refer some business to.
I am constantly giving referrals to the good business owners that I know.
Who are some good people to network with if you operate a lawn care business?
I network with tree companies, stump grinders, realtors, property managers, lawn application companies, painters, plumbers, construction people, lawn care and landscape companies, you name it!
I don’t really exclude anyone, I try to make as many relationships as I can.
Here are some possible networking opportunities:
Just remember, every opportunity that comes along is not a good one.
As a business owner, it’s up to you to decide which opportunities are good for you and which ones are not a good fit.
