Turn Your One-Person Contracting Operation into a Turnkey Solution for Customers

What if I told you there was a way to bring in more money as a contractor and have new customers flocking to you that required less work for you and reduced your overhead costs?

It might sound like a riddle, but the solution is relatively simple — partner with other contractors to turn your one-person business into a turnkey solution that offers value to your customers. This simple solution will solve a lot of headaches you face and get more money in your pocket. Here’s why.

What is a Turnkey Delivery Solution?

Construction projects often require hiring several contractors. This can be a pain point for the customer, who now has multiple people they need to talk to for quotes, updates, payment, and other essential details about their project. 

A turnkey delivery solution condenses all of those heads into one point of accountability. If you are a builder, for example, your turnkey delivery solution could mean partnering with an electrician, a plumber, a landscaper, and an excavator who all play a role in the project.

You will all continue to work independently. However, by partnering together, you can coordinate on projects so that you are all on the same page about timing and pricing. The customer has one quote that gets distributed to each of you based on your agreement. They have one person to contact when a question arises. In short, they don’t need to be the project manager of their own project, which makes them a whole lot happier and saves a lot of frustration.

As contractors, you all now have a greater customer reach because you can offer an enhanced service. You also have the benefits of working with people you trust to deliver quality work on your agreed-upon timeline. By keeping your customers happy and streamlined, you can get more work done in less time.

Marketing Yourself as a Contracting Group

Once you have developed partnerships with other contractors, you can begin marketing yourself as a contracting group that offers turnkey solutions for home builds, remodels, and commercial construction projects. You can use each other’s networks to find new customers and provide additional services to returning customers.

In short, you can become an unstoppable force in the market because you have the power of a group of people who trust each other and are committed to delivering high-quality services. By working with contractors you trust and respect, you can ensure that your customers are taken care of during every aspect of their project.

I Can Help You Go From One-Man-Show to Turnkey Solution

Operating as a turnkey solution is the best thing you can do for yourself and your customers. This method reduces costs because you can pool together more resources. It makes it easier for you to coordinate with other contractors on the same project, eliminating headaches and improving efficiency. Work gets done faster, you get paid earlier, and customers are so happy they tell all their friends to hire you for their next project.

Marketing yourself as a group instead of as a solo contractor will drive more business and help you make more money without adding more hours to your workday. I can help you develop a marketing strategy that will generate new business as a group. Contact me today to schedule a free strategy session.
