HOW TO GROW YOUR HOME SERVICES BUSINESS IN A CHALLENGING ECONOMY

Updated: Mar 27, 2023



Santa Ana, CA - March 13, 2023 - Technology Source, a national technology advisory firm, is proud to announce a new program designed to help home builders and home service providers succeed. The outlook for the home services industry in the coming year is expected to be positive. With more people spending time at home, the demand for home services like repairs, landscaping, cleaning, and interior decorating is likely to increase. However, the industry is still likely to face challenges such as rising costs of labor and materials, as well as the need to remain competitive in the market. To ensure success in the industry, businesses must be able to adapt to changing customer needs and leverage technology to stay ahead of the competition.


For this reason, Technology Source has started the Home Services Industry Support Program (HSISP). The program is free to small businesses, and starts with helping construction, roofing, HVAC, and other home service businesses, review where they stand in today’s marketplace. It includes an audit of their online presence and scores them against benchmarks to see where they stack up against competitors. Then they help the business explore CRM, automation, and other SaaS tools to gain leverage and grow in an uncertain economy.


Technology Source is committed to providing tools and services that help businesses succeed. The HSISP includes access to various SaaS products including an ideal solution for businesses that need an all-in-one solution to manage their operations. With the help of Technology Source and small business management software, businesses can focus on their core business activities and save time and resources.


Here are Five Reasons why small businesses are opting into working with Technology Source’s advisors and the HSISP program:


1. Streamlined workflow: the right platform provides an all-in-one platform to manage all aspects of a business, from customer relationship management to scheduling to invoicing. Home services businesses, such as plumbers, electricians, and home builders and repair providers can benefit from streamlining their workflow in several ways. Streamlining the workflow can help to reduce the amount of time and resources spent on each task, saving money on both labor and materials. Additionally, streamlining the workflow can help to reduce the number of errors that occur in the completion of tasks, making sure each job is completed correctly.


2. Increased customer engagement: the right platform, tailored to home services businesses, should have a customer relationship management (CRM) system to allow them to easily keep track of customer interactions, send automated emails and reminders, and quickly respond to customer inquiries.


3. Improved marketing results: the right SaaS tool should include marketing tools to allow businesses to create and send targeted emails, track website visits, and monitor their social media channels. This helps businesses track their marketing performance and improve their results. Home service providers should care about digital marketing and social media for their business because doing so can significantly increase their visibility and brand awareness. SEO can help home service providers rank higher in search engine results, making them easier to find for potential customers, and social media can help them build relationships with their customers and engage with them on a more personal level.


Additionally, SEO and social media can help home service providers build a reputation as an authority in their field, which can help them win more business. Ultimately, SEO and social media can be powerful tools for home service providers to help generate more leads and increase sales.


4. Increased efficiency: automated features save businesses a lot of time and effort. For example, businesses can set up automated emails, appointment reminders, and invoices, allowing them to focus their time on more important tasks.


Automating invoicing and client communications can be a great way to save time and increase efficiency. It can also help a home services business remain organized and keep track of payments with ease. Automation can also help save money by eliminating the need to hire someone to handle these tasks, and it can help the business stay connected with clients by sending out automated reminders and updates. Ultimately, automating these processes can help a home services business focus on the core of their business and increase your profitability.
