Starting Your Own Pest Control Company Is Easy With Pestmaster
Today’s post explains how Pestmaster simplifies two of the hardest parts of starting a pest control company: identifying a target market and building a winning business plan.
Challenge #1: Finding A Fertile Market
Like the farmer who seeks fertile soil to grow their crops, you need a fertile market to grow your business. If you’re planning on starting your own pest control company, that means identifying local markets with sufficient demand for pest control services. Lucky for you, they’re everywhere!
In fact, most pest control services are enjoying demand spikes throughout the US. For example:
- Post-construction termite treatments on the rise. Revenues earned from controlling termites this past year exceeded total pest control revenues generated in 2005, according to new research by Pest Control Technology.
- The bed bugs are biting. Almost all (99.6%) pest professionals report providing treatment for bed bugs in the past year. That number – which has been consistent for the past few years – is significantly higher than 15 years ago, when only 25% of pest professionals reported treating for bed bugs. Nationwide, service revenue derived from controlling bed bugs increased by 6.6 percent from the prior year, bringing total revenue earned to $611.2 million.
- Demand for mosquito control outpaces other segments. In 2016, mosquito treatments were among the fastest-growing pest segment. Last year service revenue spiked by 12.6%, primarily from an increase in demand for residential barrier treatments.
And that’s only the beginning. You can read our full industry breakdown on the Pestmaster Facts and Figures page.
Whether you choose to focus on one of these services or target the whole is up to you. But make no mistake about it: the pest control industry is booming, and finding a fertile market is easy in 2020. And if you choose to partner with Pestmaster, this step is as simple as browsing available markets on our website.
Challenge #2: Finding (Or Creating) A Winning Business Model
With the pest control market booming, lots of people are starting their own pest control company. If you want to stand out from the competition, win sales, and build an enduring brand, you’ll need to develop an effective business model.
That means identifying your specific audience, establishing business processes, recording all key resources, developing a value proposition and locating key partners. All that needs to be in place before you start having fun thinking up names or designing a logo.
But we’re not here to tell you how to create a winning business model–we’re offering you one! Rather than spending years developing the skills needed to build a competitive business model, why not adopt the proven system and processes our franchise owners have used to build successful companies since 1979?
