Bid Winning Strategies in Asphalt Maintenance
Winning a bid goes beyond offering the lowest price for the service. You need to leave your customers feeling confident that they’ve found the right contractor, something that the right price doesn’t always guarantee. Following these tips ensures you create a lasting impression, develop trust with your customers, and leads to a higher conversion rate.
Know Your Cost of Operation
Before you start seeing customers, you need to have a ballpark figure in mind for how much you’ll spend on each job. Let’s face the facts: if you don’t truly know your operating cost, you’ll never truly know your net profit. Getting crystal clear on your numbers is an absolute must.
Offer A High-Quality Product
All the software in the world can’t help your asphalt maintenance company if you don’t offer a quality product. The single most critical piece of your product is actually your people. Train them carefully, and make sure everyone in your business is delivering killer results at all times. Oh, DO NOT cut corners on materials either. Ever.
Believe it or not, shorts and mismatched socks doesn’t inspire confidence in your potential customers. Keep a fresh, branded polo in your truck just in case. You never know when opportunity will knock.
Be The Expert Advisor
When you’re with customers, you must be able to answer their questions and break down multiple solutions to them. Having a proposal software that allows you to do calculations in the field and quote almost instantly is always a great look as well. Your expertise builds trust in you, your product, and your brand.
Local Web Presence
Having a web presence makes an enormous difference. This presence provides legitimacy and, if done correctly, useful information that drives visitors towards you and away from your competitors.
Don’t worry, this doesn’t have to be a complicated ordeal. A website with a home page highlighting your services, a Contact Us page, and an About Us page with a a brief overview of why you started your business will do just fine.
