Pest Control Business Start-up Tips For Entrepreneurs In 2020

Today’s post reviews the 3 most popular pest control business start-up tips for entrepreneurs, all of which are already rolled into the Pestmaster streamlined pre-opening process. Let’s discuss!

Pest Control Business Start-up Tip #1 – Choose Your Services

The number-one tip from the top-ranked article Google turned up for “pest control business start-up tips” was to “determine which services you’ll provide.”

Sounds simple, but it’s not. Granted, almost all pest control services see strong-and-steady demand across the country (as shown on our Industry Facts and Figures page), so you probably won’t choose a dud. But to get the greatest return on your investment, you should tailor your service offerings to the specific needs of your local area. For instance, if there’s lots of construction in your area, termite controls can be hugely profitable.

Don’t worry: Pestmaster only offers franchises in territories in areas with robust demand for profitable pest control services. If opportunities are available in your area, rest assured the demand is there to support your business. Moreover, we’ll help you create and advertise your service offerings for best results in your local market. Our blend of residential, commercial, and government pest and vegetation control services ensures there’s always healthy revenue streams available for your brand.

Pest Control Business Start-up Tip #2 – Develop Your Value Proposition

What makes you stand out from the competition?

Why would somebody choose your business over any other? It’s important that you can answer this question before start-up. But easier said than done for self-starters.

Pestmaster franchise owners have plenty of answers to choose from. Our comprehensive service model means we’re one of the only true one stop shops in the pest control world, able to handle all sorts of pests, wildlife control, health-related vector control, and invasive vegetation in any setting. We’ve been perfecting our service model since 1979, and been committed to upholding an environmentally conscious approach for years. We also use only top-quality products, many of which we get through exclusive vendors.

Pest Control Business Start-up Tip #3 – Build Your Brand

Branding is a top priority on this list of start-up tips. You’ll need a logo, color scheme, name, tagline, font, website, uniform, vehicle wrap, social media page, and ad campaign in place before you open your doors for business. That can be a lot for start-ups without graphic design inspiration, marketing experience, or web savvy. But it is an essential part of the pre-opening phase.

Once again, it’s all taken care of for Pestmaster franchise owners. Our brand identity is rock-solid, with more than 40 years of success, 5-star reviews, and jobs-well-done under our belts. When you start your pest control business with our team, you get all the perks of our winning reputation from day-one–something even the most inspired start-up branding can’t measure up to.

Dr. Stuart Mitchell | BCE

I’ve been in the industry for years and I can’t tell you just how valuable the Pestmaster franchise opportunity really is. I have much greater access to identifying and getting potent government contracts with the help and assistance from the corporate office. We would not be nearly as successful as we are today, had we not purchased a Pestmaster Franchise.

Pestmaster® has been the best investment I’ve ever made in my life!

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster franchise, we could not have gone from just one to several employees in less than one year of purchasing the franchise. Without the franchise, we would not have known about the high-dollar pest control services opportunities such as West Point Academy and we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.

Paul Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

I owned my own small pest control business for six years before I decided to buy a national brand franchise. The amount of business I was able to produce in those six years was doubled in just my first year with Pestmaster. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster of Salt Lake City, UT

I knew I was ready to start a business and looked for a long time but could not find my value-added proposition What could I do better than anyone else to distinguish me from the others in any industry? I have always been a technical person, so I was not confident in my ability to start a brand and market it. I also didn’t want to start from zero without help and support in my new adventure. For these reasons I looked into franchising opportunities and quickly found Pestmaster. They provided the value-added proposition, branding, marketing and support that I was looking for. The business model works and the people in the PFN will help you succeed.
