Selling to Lawn Services

Without a doubt, lawn services are high value sales opportunities for businesses with an eye on growth. Don't forget that lawn services aren't easy sales marks -- here's what you'll need to convert prospects into customers.

Penetrating the world of lawn services can require complex sales and marketing strategies.

If your sales strategies lack horsepower, your entire revenue stream could be in jeopardy. Here are a few simple strategies you can count on to deliver results.

Internet Strategies

With lawn services going online in record numbers, it's becoming more important for B2B sellers to develop online sales strategies.

A user-friendly website is the anchor for all of your other online sales and marketing activities. However, you should also consider incorporating email advertising, SEO, social networking and other techniques into your sales and marketing mix.

Marketing Tips

In a B2B environment, sales and marketing are connected at the hip. To succeed in the lawn service industry, you'll need to entrench your company in the marketplace. Leading sellers strategically utilize their resources to establish and maintain a strong industry presence. Cost is a factor, but any channel that can raise your visibility with prospects is worth considering.

Make sure you invest in a first-rate website. These days, lawn services frequently access vendors through online channels. An investment in an attractive and user-friendly website is a must.

Industry Experience

In lawn service sales, industry experience is fundamental requirement. Although it isn't necessary to have decades of front line experience, it helps to speak the industry language and to understand the pressure points of a typical lawn service.

B2B sellers who lack industry experience can compensate for inexperience by subscribing to trade journals, partnering with industry insiders and immersing themselves in the industry culture. Remember, lawn services may also be more open to sellers within their network, so it's important to increase the size of your network as quickly as possible.
