I need some advice. I had a PM I do work for (carpet cleaning) express interest awhile back in Pressure Washing services. Brought it up with him again yesterday, and we were discussing it. One of the guys who works for him has a Home Depot special, and has offered to do jobs on a per unit price. Don't know the price point yet, but I'd been thinking of doing something similar. He was making noises about how the owners are cheap, Bob gave a price that they'll pay, and he won't do a GREAT job...but it's better than nothing.
This guy manages 270 properties for various owners, most of them houses, or smaller apartment buildings. I want him to use ME. I need this money, this year. How can I get him to see the light? I'm thinking something like 175 for a 1 story, 225 for a 2-story, etc...but I also am not sure how many I'll be able to accomplish per day. At this point, if I could stay busy for the entire spring/summer time frame, making around $500 a day, I'd be freaking thrilled. I'm sure that's not much for some of you, but my business is brand new, and I don't have large equipment payments I have to make every month. 10k-12k a month would be just what the doctor ordered, and would give me some money to sink into presentations, marketing, and the like.
So, what I'm asking you for help with is figuring out how I can sell this to him. I'm gonna try to get an idea of the price point his guy gave him, and if it's too low, I'm walking away...but if you guys can help me figure out how to make this workable...
Tell me what further information you need to understand the situation, and we'll take it from there.
