I am a small local business owner in a small city in Texas. I sell sprinkler systems and repair them for customers. I enjoy fixing a sprinkler head or creating a new zone for my customers. I have had this sprinkler company for over a decade now. I used to struggle to pay my mortgage, car loan, phone, and utility bills, but I don’t anymore. I used to do everything by myself, but now I use a company for internet marketing. They started as my marketing consultant.
The difference here between a sprinkler company with a marketing company and one without one is huge. Business owners don’t have time to market for themselves. That’s a big problem if they want to grow and want to grow. I used to have to do everything myself for fear if it would get done wrong. After I found out about marketing companies and how they can truly help me, I had to try it. I worked so many hours trying to get my business out to potential customers and do my job at the same time. Talk about walking in slow motion. You don’t get anywhere with this methodology or at least nowhere quickly.
I hired a marketing team on to do one thing. I wanted them to grow my business at any means. I told them I didn’t care how much business came my way that I would find a way to install and repair any sprinkler system that came my way. It started off slowly but by the third month, I was busy and happy. I had no problem paying my bills and planning vacations. I had to hire new staff to support the new demands I had for my services. I mean what a relief that was to be in that situation.
Don’t get me wrong, there were some problems I had to overcome with growth. However, if you want to truly grow, you will enjoy all the lessons ahead. I no longer stress about money or whether my company is going to make it. Customers flood our phone system, and our email systems are bogged down by new potential customers every day. We are booked weeks out at a time. Yes, soon I will be hiring more staff again.
Eventually, I needed even more help. I hired a manager to take care of things, while I took a side seat to enjoy the finer things in life. I also had to hire even more staff. I was so amazed about what internet marketing did for the company that I recommend it to any of my friends that own a business. I got to watch my business grow from a tiny pecan to a huge pecan tree. It was such an amazing site in just a few short years. It’s no wonder there aren’t more businesses with a marketing company like mine.
