Networking with Local Businesses
Power Washing & Landscaping in Surrey
As the saying goes in business… “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” There is some truth to this as I believe the strength of your business lies in the strength of your relationships.
When growing a local home service business, it’s very important to collaborate and network with other local service providers.
We are fortunate to have a positive working relationship with a local landscaping provider, Atkinson Landscaping. This company specializes in landscaping in Surrey, Langley, and surrounding cities. The owner Dave really cares about his company and keeps client’s needs at the centre of their company. In this way, the value’s at Atkinson parallels are values at Revive Washing.
We have been doing house washing, window cleaning, and gutter cleaning for the client’s of Atkinson Landscaping in Surrey, Cloverdale, and Langley. Both of our companies work in similar neighbourhoods in Langley and Surrey offering landscaping and house washing services to homeowners. If you are looking for an excellent option for landscaping your yard or outdoor living space, Atkinson is a great choice.
This week I met up for lunch at Chipotle in Langley and talked about our upcoming year. Here is a short video introducing Dave of Atkinson Landscaping as well as Dave their Operations Manager.
It’s important to view other service providers as allies rather than competition. After all, we work for very similar clients. When one company is able to refer the other company it helps the homeowner and also makes your company look good and reliable for being connected in the community.
If you are looking to network and meet other local businesses I would suggest joining a local chamber of commerce. We are currently in the Langley Chamber of Commerce and have been blessed to meet and network with a number of local businesses.
Hiring reputable contractors makes all the difference in your home renovation project. Atkinson takes care of landscaping the grounds including grass cutting, while Revive Washing takes care of the exterior washing including gutters, windows, and siding.
Networking in the community is extremely important while your company is still in infancy stage. In regards to growth, one of my favourite quotes is, “If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.”Back to Blog
