Grow Your Onsite Wastewater Treatment Business Using Free Tools From Infiltrator
If you own a business, or if you’re in charge of your company’s financial results, you probably ask yourself these questions on a regular basis: “How can we grow this?” and “How can we improve the bottom line?”
There are several avenues to achieve these goals. The standard approaches include landing more customers by increasing marketing effort, and on the profitability side: cutting costs. Another common approach involves broadening your scope of services. This option can be daunting and risky. It usually involves hiring more people and probably hiring people that bring a wider range of expertise, which means ramping up the payroll to a new level. Of course, the timing of hiring new talent can make or break a company. Highly capable talent comes at a cost and if you don’t yet have enough work to keep them busy, it can drain operating cash quickly. So what’s the right answer?
Most growing small companies take on the additional work with the current level of people and ‘just deal with it.’ This can lead to disgruntled workers and owner burnout. There has to be a better way, right? What if you could leverage your growth using the human capital assets of others? What if you could broaden your offering while not taking on new employees?
Leverage Vendor Relationships
In the onsite, decentralized wastewater world, there’s a smart approach that could lower your risk during growth stages and expand the types of customers you service. It involves getting more out of your vendors. Use them to do more of the design and detailing work. Push them to hire engineers and CAD techs to do more for you, then your cost and risk profile is lower as you ease into broader markets and additional services. They will qualify what they do to control their own risk.
