Block and Tackle - Business fundamentalsToday I was inspired by a discussion with Alan Moore, the owner of Meridian Plumbing. I asked him how his business was doing since taking it over. His response, “Phenomenal, we’ve grown the business 40% in ten months”.

I asked him, “What are you doing differently?”

He responded, “We block and tackle better than anyone else. We focus on the fundamentals and it’s working”

Intrigued I asked him what fundamentals they focused on to bring about such a huge upswing in their business.  Here are a few nuggets I gleaned from our discussion:

  • First visit and consultation are always free. Show the customer you are invested in earning their business.
  • Arrive on time!
  • Come to serve and work for the customer.
  • Give the customer options and explain the pros and cons of each.
  • Execute on what you promise.
  • Recognize you are a guest in the customer’s home. Treat their property and them accordingly.
  • Say Thank You!

Amazing what kind of explosive growth you can achieve when you get to work and focus on the basics.

Thank you Alan for the inspiration! Keep up the good work.
