This Week on YouTube: July 14, 2018

Hey gang! Here's another list of interesting videos posted by the Pros out there. This week the lawn care community on YouTube is talking about the challenges of working as a team (be it with your family business or employees), and the perks of being active on social media. You don't want to miss it!

Fire or Hire?

Is it really getting more and more difficult to employ people to work in the field of lawn care and landscaping? Or are there just not enough people willing to work hard anymore? These are all questions Tim Bennett of Lawn and Beyond LLC asked himself and realized he had to look at his business culture first. Learn Tim's new hiring system based on the candidate's fit.

Like Father, Like Son

What can be better than sharing your everyday business challenges with your family? Especially, if it's your son, who owns a business with you, supports you, and shares your passion. Right? Or is everything not as perfect as it seems? Watch this video by Ben of ACME Mowing, a father and son veteran-owned company in Oklahoma, to find out about the challenges and disagreements they often face.

Husband And Wife Working Together

Curious what it's like to run a business with your loved one? UAG member Shawn Spencer and his wife Savanaha of Spencer Lawn Care are probably the best examples. Watch their vlog to see how they're doing everything together: mowing grass, facing business challenges, and somehow still finding time to have lots of fun.

Perks of Getting Involved

Regardless of the business structure, all the pros above have one important thing in common - they all take pride in their work, and love showing it via social media. UAG Member Brian Fullerton of Brian's Lawn Maintenance discusses the perks of getting involved, and how social media helps your business grow.

Social Media Marketing Tip

Social media can be very cost-effective, and it's another thing the Green Industry loves about it. If you're looking for more ways to reach thousands of people on a budget, check out this simple Facebook tip. UAG member Danny Lanier of Lanier Lawn Care shows the way to market your business without having to go out and put fliers in door hangers.
