This Week On YouTube: Jan 12, 2018

Hey gang, and welcome to the first YouTube round-up of 2018! We hope you had a wonderful holiday with friends and family, and enjoyed some much-deserved relaxation time over the holiday period!

As we head into the New Year, this week’s round-up shares some great videos that look at 2018 goals - from starting the lawn care business you’ve been thinking about, to planning ahead for the year for your existing business, and more. Check out the videos below!

Growing your lawn care business in the off-season

Earlier this week, UAG Member Shawn Spencer, of Spencer Lawn Care, shared tips on how to use the off-season to grow your lawn care business. We thought his advice was so good we’re sharing again here, in case you missed the original video.

Start your business TODAY!

Over on our forum, we see quite a few questions from newer members on what it takes to actually start a lawn care/landscaping/property service business. Blake Albertson of B&B Lawn Care offers some inspiring advice on how to make 2018 the year that happens.

Build loyalty to build your success

In any business, loyalty is key when it comes to prolonged success. As Nick of Saving Green Lawn Care shows, when you can grow loyalty in both clients and employees, your business will benefit even in the slow months.

How to market and build a customer base closer to each other

Route density - building a client list from customers in the same local area - can be key to saving money when it comes to growing your business. Ryan Sciamanna of Loyal Green Lawn Care and Services offers some great ideas to help you build, and market to, that closer-knit customer base.

Don’t let 2018 pass you by

Okay, so we’re cheating a little here, as this was posted outside the last 7 days. But we were so inspired by this video from new UAG Member Brian Shain of Top Notch Lawn Care, we had to include it in our round-up. Looking to be inspired in your business for the year ahead? Here you go!
