How can I grow my business?

• Develop brochures designed for handouts at lumber yards, home improvement stores, garden centers,mailings, etc.
• Advertise on placemats in restaurants.
• Advertise on prime time radio station advertising.
• Maintain legible, quality lettering for your truck and equipment. A well designed logo is important.
• Be on time. Establish good business relationships, and always thank them for their business.
• Carry a wheelbarrow, come-along, and edger to rent out, sell or to facilitate a speedy delivery.
• Always obtain multiple phone numbers from your customers (e.g. office, home, cell and business address).
• Have business cards available – leave a couple at every job.
• Advertise through your local cable TV supplier – they are able to broadcast commercials to specific zip codes.
• Always be professional in demeanor and appearance.

One thing that must be consistently remembered… We are a Service Business, as opposed to commodity Business. We are the “square guys” known for service, as opposed to the “barrel guys” known for commodity. “It’s Hip To Be Squre!”

“It’s not ready mix, it’s mixed when you’re ready…”
“Concrete as personalized as your morning cup of coffee…”
