How do you know when someone will need your service?
When they do need you, how do they find you?
We donít know when people we need our services, however when they do how can we be visible and top of mind 365 days a year. At Localman in a Van we believe we have the answer. Localman in a Van is about connecting businesses together into a local network to get work.
The way we see it is we all have the same workplace - Mumís house. Whilst at the home we are often asked who we know that can install a powerpoint, fix a pipe, mow the lawn. Given this we decided to put together a list of 164 businesses who could provide the services that Mum & Dads require to keep their home looking 100%.
Localman in a Van operates on a number of levels
Connecting you to Mums & Dads
The Localman in a Van calendar is given FREE to households in the local area for Mum & Dad to use throughout the year for all their important dates. At the top of each month is a list of the local trades and services they may need throughout the year. It is all on one page and repeated each month, so you are visible 365 days a year.
Connecting you to other businesses
Referring work to other businesses is the best form of work, the only way to refer though is when you know someone. Through a series of networking events it is the intention of Localman in a Van for businesses within the network to get to know each other, so that when a customer asks 'do you know someone who can fix this', you can say 'I know just the right person for you'.
Connecting business to business
There are a number of businesses who only do business with businesses, their services donít extend to the home, eg OH&S, Business Insurance etc. These businesses will also be part of the local network so we can get to know more businesses, thus refer more work.
We can all improve our businesses, leading to greater profitability. Throughout the year there will be opportunity for you to focus on your business and ways to improve how you conduct your operations, for both you and your staff.
Your own salesperson
Each area has its own assigned salesperson. The role of this person is to be an extension of your sales force. Their main focus is in getting work for you. As you are often too busy doing the work in the business, we help with that. Any chance that we get to promote your business locally to other businesses and households we will.
Job Search Team
In each area whenever there is work that is available we will be on the lookout on your behalf. We understand that you may not have time to look for work, so when we discover the local construction group is seeking applications to assist in the construction on new buildings or the local council is looking for maintenance services, we will be sure to let you know so that you donít miss out on the opportunity to get more work.
Interested in joining? We are looking for more Tradesmen to join the Localman in a Van network.
