The Business of Termite Control is the first book to look at the business side of controlling termites. There is a wealth of published technical information available on the tactics and technology of termite control, but little useful guidance on the business of termite control, until now! Two of the pest control industrys leading experts offer a comprehensive overview of how to successfully run a termite control business in good times and bad.
Here are the kinds of questions this book will help answer for those already in the termite business. Am I missing critical business opportunities with my current services? Should I change my current marketing strategy? Are there emerging niches I should exploit? And the biggest question, how can I adapt or focus my business to improve my bottom line?
Thinking of starting a termite control business? The Business of Termite Control will help answer questions such as: Can I compete with existing companies? What materials and equipment will I need? What will it cost me to get started? Who will train my employees? Can I avoid legal and regulatory problems? How do I price my work? What is the best way to market and sell my services?
