Staying updated with the trades industry is important for your trades business. Now that you are a business owner, you need to be across all aspects of the business. You need to know how your business is performing and the daily ins and outs of your operations. However, you also need to step back and check the broader picture. How is your business doing in the construction and trades industry? How do macro environment changes affect your business?
Just like the first homeowner’s grant. It’s expected to create an increase in new homes and your business could capitalise from it but there could be a shortage in staff so you need to adjust and account for all possibilities. If you’re a plumber specialising on renovation or refurbishment and there are new DIY bathroom products on the market, it may cost you business. It’s important to be across industry news so you can avoid potholes and take advantage of opportunities.
Nothing’s irrelevant so you need to be up to date with the economy, weather, politics and home trends. You can subscribe to industry publications and take time to read them. You can check out Inside Construction, Build Australia and ABC News on Building and Construction.
Be friends with other contractors and clients to be involved in the industry. It’s good to hear various perspectives on hot tops and understand the performance of your competitors.
As you look for different ways to grow and improve your business, seeking professional advice could prove to be an important and helpful decision.
