If you are like us, and you want to improve your building business – then you’ve probably checked out the business coaches floating around at the moment. You may have noticed that a couple of them are specialising in coaching builders.
There is no doubt these people can help a builder improve. The problem with these guys is that, regardless of what ever they can teach you – at the end of the training they leave you an invoice, pack up and go home.
This is exactly the same problem with software salespeople. If you purchase software for your stand-alone building company – they arrive, install and leave. At best they will provide support and training but at some point this runs out.
They just are not providing the full picture or a full spectrum solution.They are just providing little bits and pieces of what it takes to build a great new home building business.
When you join a team of builders in a business format franchise network, you instantly gain the full spectrum support – the sort of support where the provider does not get paid* until you’ve got new homes under construction.
To build a great new home building business nowadays, you have to have:
- An exciting design range
- Online house and land package listing system
- A brilliant website
- Estimating and Accounting systems and software
- Quoting software systems
- Workflow management systems and software
- A great marketing, advertising and graphic arts portfolio
And most of all, you need to be part of a great team where you have someone to talk to. You will be surprised at what it can do for you and your business just to openly chat with another builder growing his business in another area who is not in competition with you. You can imagine that no industry innovation will go unnoticed, and that your non-competing teammates will bring it to your attention. How does a stand alone building firm keep up with innovations?
Get all this in one neat package, a coach that doesn’t make money until you do and a place on a team of committed building pro’s. We are growing our team at Stroud Homes and we’re looking for good builders in your area. If you are looking to grow your business but do not know where to start, we would love to show you the plan for your area. To make a time to meet, or speak to me – give us a call on 0435 803 411.
*ongoing franchise fees are paid after construction of homes are underway.
