Why use a handyman services list

Using a list to keep track of the professional handyman services that you offer benefits your business in a number of different ways.

Create a consistent pricing strategy

When you build out a list of the services that you offer, you can attach a price to each one. This helps you price jobs between different clients clearly, consistently, and accurately. 

It also helps to ensure that you make enough profit for each job that you do.

Provide faster estimates and quotes

When you have a list of services to refer to, making quotes and estimates is as simple as adding items from your handyman services list to your client documents. There’s no need to rely on your memory or a scrap of paper.

You can also add complimentary handyman services to your quote as optional line items to win bigger jobs.

Here’s what that looks like in Jobber.

Build a marketing plan

Once you’ve compiled a list of all the services you offer, you’re ready to build an effective handyman marketing plan. You can start by identifying any services that give you a competitive advantage.

For example, if you offer babyproofing and aging-in-place upgrades for seniors but your competitors don’t, you can highlight those services in your marketing materials.

Next, consider any seasonal services you offer, like pressure washing or holiday light installation to make sure you’re advertising them at the right time.

Offer online booking

Add your services list to your handyman website and let customers book appointments online to fill your schedule with less effort. With Jobber, customers can select the services they want through your online booking page.
