Starting a business can very tough, especially if you have no prior experience with a business. In this article, I am going to give you some advice on how you can quickly start a handyman contracting business in Sacramento from home today. Sacramento is the capital of California with an estimated population of 479,686 so there is plenty of opportunities to serve the marketplace and make a great living do it. What are some of the thing you can do to start a handyman business right away? You can easily go to garage sales or even craigslist and look for used tools that will help you build up a solid tool base for a variety of jobs that an average handyman performs. Let’s say you spend about $100 for tools of craigslist and you can use your own vehicle and maybe put some stickers or advertisements about your business. Your goal is to have the tools ready and then create awareness about your services so that you can start to get some experience. I would even look to take small jobs such as carpentry work just to get experience and feedback from others.
Once you have a few happy past customers, then you can have them leave you reviews on yelp as other online properties. It would also be a good idea to have a website in which you can showcase your work and have people find you. Your website doesn’t have to be super nice or anything fancy, just something that will allow people to see your work and be able to contact you via email or phone.
When you’re creating your website it is very important that you mobile optimize it effectively because 60% of searches are now done through a mobile phone and if your site is not mobile friendly then you are losing that business to your competition.
