Learn How To Start Or Grow A Handyman Business

HS 003 – 5 Strategies To Increase Your Hourly Rate

Have you ever wondered why some handymen are booked solid at $75/hour while others are struggling while only charging $25/hour?  Sure, level of skill plays a major role, but there is  much more to the equation.

In this episode of the Handyman Startup Podcast, I discuss strategies that you must implement in order to demand a solid hourly rate.  There are 5 things that have allowed me to go from charging $25/hour to demanding $60/hour and having customers be more than happy to pay that.  I discuss each in detail so you can start making more money with your handyman business.

Here’s what to expect in this podcast:

  • Why your appearance plays a major role in how much you can charge.
  • How targeting the right customers will make or break your business.
  • How the types of services you offer effects your profits.
  • How to re-assure customers and increase the likelihood of being hired.
  • Why quality should be integrated into every aspect of your business.

Thanks for listening and don’t forget to put these strategies into action right away.
