    Construction Bookkeeping And Accounting - Expectation Vs Reality

    Posted by Randal DeHart on Fri, Feb 22, 2019

    Construction Bookkeeping is something you need to understand first, then learn. Over the years, hundreds of people have told us how easy QuickBooks is to use and how hard QuickBooks For Contractors is to use, and that is so true.

    Here is what I see repeated many times among construction companies: You usually hire an “office admin with experience in QuickBooks," ask your spouse or significant other to do it for you, or you try your best and do it yourself. Some would take the time to hire an in-house bookkeeper – not knowing what they need is a Construction Bookkeeper/Accountant.

    Online Quiz: How To Create A Lead Generation Tool That Drives Traffic And Engages Your Audience

    Posted by Allie Bloyd on Tue, Feb 19, 2019


    Today's Guest Article Is From Allie Bloyd

    Quizzes are one of the best ways that home improvement or remodeling businesses can grow their email lists, engage their audience, and add a little fun to their social media or web assets!

    A quiz will do 2 things:

    1. Allow your audience to self identify as a potential customer by simply taking the quiz
    2. Allow you to diagnose and prescribe a solution for your prospect's problem on a personal level.

    Both of these help your online marketing efforts substantially.

    The question I often get asked is, HOW would I go about writing a quiz? It seems complicated and time-consuming. Is it really that difficult?

    The answer is NO! It's not that hard if you have a plan going in. Quizzes are hugely beneficial, but if done the wrong way, you'll waste your time, so I'll cover the 6 easy steps you can take to create an engaging quiz in no time at all!

    Top 12 Crucial Elements Every Construction Business Website Needs To Generate More Ideal Clients

    Posted by Norhalma Verzosa on Fri, Feb 15, 2019

    Whether someone found you via a referral, a word of mouth, or through the search engine results page, chances are not all of them will contact you instantly. Most likely, people will check and do an online research of your credentials and company’s credibility. That is what your website is for. Why should a browser choose your plumbing company? Can the site visitor afford your services? What are their options? It could be as simple as someone looking for faucet repairs and you only do brand new installations. Not only will your website provide essential details about your business, but it can also screen clients for you based on the information you provided. Serves both ways, right?

    You probably spend most of your working hours at the construction site but understand that your prospective clients (and former ones) are spending their time on your business site. Your online presence makes you a trusted source and a reliable expert that they can go to and come back to all the time.

    Make Google love you by creating a cohesive website with high-quality pages and show your website visitors why you do what you do so they will hire your services by implementing these 12 crucial elements to your website.

    The Home Improvement And Repair Contractor Success M.A.P.

    Posted by Randal DeHart on Fri, Feb 08, 2019

    You started your service business doing what you love thinking all you had to do was get good jobs, finish the work promptly, and make a lot of money. Then one day you get a rude awakening that getting jobs done and doing the work was only a small part of being in the home service industry. What started as an adventure turned into something not as fun as you thought it would be. You are now experiencing the challenges of being self-employed: How can I generate more leads? How much should I charge for this job? What can I do to be more productive and increase my profits?

    The secret is in thinking patterns and habits.

    • Success is a few simple disciplines practiced every day
    • Failure is a few errors in judgment repeated every day

    Which goes to show you that almost any home improvement contractor can generate enough cash flow and profits from their business to turn their contracting company from a people-dependent money pit into a process-dependent cash cow, and have the freedom they dreamed of when they started contracting.
