Create A Solid Business Plan & Stick To It

It is important to have goals. Without goals, it is easy to expend your energy working on the wrong things, and it is easy for profits to stall out. A business plan allows you to set goals and stay focused. Every business should have one. As a Truly Nolen franchise, you have access to guidance in setting up a business plan for your franchise. This is definitely worth investing time in to pursue.

Consistent Quality Customer Service Is Crucial

When things go wrong (which happens a lot in pest control) it is important that you are on top of customer service. Not only will this help you retain current subscription customers, but it will also impact the reviews your customers leave on the internet.

As you seek to hire and train the best customer service team members you can find, keep those internet reviews in mind. An important role of customer service is to check key review sites and actively respond to legitimate complaints. When you turn a bad review into a good review, you make a big impact on potential customers.

Stay Up-To-Date On Latest Pest Control Advances & Trends

Customers often do some homework before they reach out to you. When they do, they're going to find what is currently trending. If you know what they know, you can properly address questions and steer the conversation toward why you use what you use. If a new pest control advance or trend is worth pursuing, you may adopt it.

That makes the conversation with customers even easier. They ask, "Do you use tamper-resistant rodent traps?" You say, "Yes, we do." They ask, "Do you use Sentricon?" You say, "Yes, we do." They ask, "Does your business use Integrated Pest Management?" You say, "Yes, we do." It is wise to do your research and always stay up-to-date on all advances that impact the services you provide.
