With a huge market cap of over 25 billion dollars, there is a lot of money to be made!
Tree service companies are pounded every day by salespeople trying to sell SEO or lead generation services. This is a unique service that you will offer that has immediate value for their business.
It is also a recession-proof business (and covid-proof). Trees fall and need maintenance regardless of the economy or the weather. In the spring and summer, strong storms regularly uproot trees and blow their limbs and debris onto homes. Tree service professionals are extremely busy!
I know, you’re asking “But Jeanne, it’s wintertime right now, shouldn’t I wait until spring?“
Absolutely NOT. By researching this market I have reached out to dozens of tree service companies all over the country to gather data. One of the top things that I learned was that in many areas if a client doesn’t schedule their tree maintenance in the winter, it is likely they won’t get an appointment for many months!
Yes, tree service companies are slower in the winter, which opens up a huge opportunity for you! How? Unlike many other home service companies, the winter slow down is the ideal time to find the owner of the company because he will likely be at home or in the office. One way to ensure you kill a sale for a home service contractor is to call when they are busy on a job so winter is an ideal time to catch owners!
