When I talk to contractors, many ask the same question, and that is, “How do I grow my company the right way?”
To me, there are only two answers:
1) Master Organic Marketing
2) Master Acquisition
Mastering Organic Marketing means you are so good at the right messaging delivered using the right marketing vehicles that you create more demand for the work you can do in a given day which means you need to grow your team to support this ability.
Great Organic Marketers have figured out on their own or with good marketing outsources how to make their phone ring “off the hook” which has allowed the owner to hang up their tool belt and begin to focus on what it takes to run a successful business.
Mastering Acquisition means you’ve learned how to buy someone else’s company and acquire their customers and good will and sometimes their assets like trucks and inventory or even their building.
Great Acquisition Players know that Acquisition can and often does happen in many ways and in many forms.
My focus here is on Acquisition as the best way to… Buying Your Way to Growth.
