Top 5 Tips to Make the Most of the Spring Rush

By Paul Jamison from Jamison Landscaping

As the winter finally seems to be ebbing away, it’s time to get ready for that time of year - the Spring rush - where our phones seem to go crazy!

This is also where we can really start planning out the year ahead, and where we’re going to make changes in our business.

In this video, I want to share my top 5 tips for making the most of the spring rush this year.

As you can see by the video, if you break down what you need to do into manageable sections, it can really help set you up for success in the upcoming season.

  • Have a plan. Don’t let yourself get stretched thin, and over-promise on areas where it might be difficult to manage effectively. As I like to say, the riches are in the niches - drive your business where you want it to go.

  • Set boundaries. We need to be intentional in our relationships year round, but essentially in the spring. Avoid burnout, and set boundaries when you work, so you can have the downtime you need with your loved ones be clear of distraction.

  • Increase prices. Don’t be afraid to raise you rates. Send communication, explain rising costs means raised prices. Most customers will be fine with this. Communicate, explain why, and customers will get it.

  • Work hard. OK, this is a given, but just like I mentioned in set boundaries, we need to work intentional. Demand in the spring for our industry is always high, so let’s work hard and crush our goals. We have the chance to make the most money of the year.

  • Save money. You need to save for a lot of reasons - winter funds, vacations, new tools, etc. When you make extra money in the spring (and raised prices), set aside a percentage for your winter fund, and paying off debts, quarterly taxes, etc.

I hope this video helps, guys, and let me know how you plan ahead for the spring rush.
