๐Ÿ’ผ Mastering Commercial Sales Proposals, Pricing Strategies, & Unbeatable Follow-up Tactics!

Pricing Strategy

  1. Understanding Your Costs: Before setting your pricing, it's crucial to understand your production rate and expenses. You should have a clear grasp of your costs to provide your services.
  2. Margins: Determine your desired profit margin. In this class Ron is right by not providing prices for the class. Your margin is unique to your business, and he can't provide one-size-fits-all prices.
  3. Budget Match: Don't offer unnecessary discounts. Each customer should have a predetermined, price-coded rate. Your Price is your Price!
  4. Performance-based Pricing: Consider how much work you can realistically complete in an hour. If this aligns with your desired earnings, it's a suitable pricing model. Be realistic about what you can deliver.
  5. Maintenance Agreements: Offer maintenance agreements to clients. These can sometimes have better budgets than the margins you initially considered. Remember, if the budget is too low. That might indicate inadequate maintenance practices.
  1. The Importance of Follow-up: The number one mistake in sales is not following up. Regular and timely follow-up is key to successful sales.
  2. Ask for Follow-up Dates: When sending unsolicited proposals, always ask the recipient when you should follow up. This will help you gauge their interest and readiness to engage.
  3. Unsolicited Proposals: When someone tells you not to call them back, it's usually an indication of disinterest. In such cases, take the initiative and propose a follow-up date and time, like "Next Thursday at 10 AM."
  4. Frequency of Follow-up: The frequency of follow-up depends on the value of the potential customer. For high-value clients, more frequent follow-ups are warranted.
  5. Use of Unsolicited Bids: Don't hesitate to send unsolicited proposals via email and USPS. This proactive approach can lead to valuable opportunities.
  6. Demo Videos: Creating demo videos can be a powerful tool in your sales arsenal. Ensure you have permission from the company before posting these videos online.
  7. Tracking Demo Videos: Keep track of where you post your demo videos, but avoid prominently displaying the property name in the center.
Keep in mind that Ron's extensive industry experience is a valuable asset, and the fact that he has thrived in a 15-year collaboration with a contractor speaks volumes about the efficacy of these strategies. The key to successful commercial sales is understanding your costs, setting competitive pricing, and maintaining a proactive. Then respectfully follow-up approach with potential clients.

The Art of Pricing in Commercial Sales!
Embracing the Principle - "The Price is the Price"!

In the realm of commercial sales, where precision and profitability intertwine. The concept of pricing stands as a cornerstone. In this blog, is the philosophy that sets the tone for successful transactions. "The Price is the Price." In the commercial sector, discounts are not just discouraged! They are a deviation from a strategic pricing approach that ensures sustained success.​

The Myth of Discounts

In an industry where precision matters.Then providing discounts may seem like a shortcut to securing a deal. However, we challenge this notion! That discounts often undervalue the quality and expertise of commercial services. Ron is a seasoned professional and echoes this sentiment. The true value of your service should be reflected in your pricing.

Strategic Pricing

Commercial sales thrive on strategic pricing that aligns with the actual worth of the service. Ron's success story is a testament to the effectiveness of this approach. By setting a non-negotiable price based on production rates, expenses, and desired margins. Then you establish the integrity and value of your services.

Understanding the Commercial Landscape

In the commercial world, consistency is key. Property managers and clients have a keen understanding of the costs associated with services like pressure washing, window cleaning, and carpet cleaning. By presenting a fixed price, you convey professionalism and reliability. While instilling confidence in your clients.

Tailoring Your Approach

One size does not fit all in commercial sales. Ron's refusal to provide fixed prices for services speaks to the need for customization. Your pricing should be a reflection of your unique production rates, expenses, and desired profit margins. This tailored approach ensures that each client receives a quote that accurately represents the value of your services.

The Price is the Contract

In commercial sales, the agreed-upon price is not just a number. It's a contract. By adhering to this principle, you foster trust and transparency. Clients appreciate clarity in pricing. Especially knowing that there are no hidden costs or unexpected fluctuations.

As we navigate the intricate landscape of commercial sales. Let's embrace the philosophy that defines success. "The Price is the Price." By rejecting the allure of discounts and adopting a strategic pricing approach. You not only elevate the perceived value of your services but also lay the foundation for enduring success in the competitive commercial sector.

understanding your client needs and presenting your services effectively.

Start Crafting Maintenance Proposals

Unsolicited Proposal Best Practices

  2. Check the Hot Areas Emphasize critical areas in your proposals. Some may not care about every inch, but they do care about spots prone to accidents or visible soiling.

Frequency & Importance of Maintenance

Compliance & Liability Awareness

Understanding C.A.M. Fees

Here are the Key Insights for Commercial Account Management

In our Commercial Sales Class it's important to understand the the critical realm of C.A.M. (Common Area Maintenance) Fees for Commercial Accounts. CAM has a function similarly to HOA fees in Residential settings.

The Breakdown of Why CAM Fees are Essential
  1. Tenant Contribution C.A.M. Fees are additional charges paid by tenants. This is separate from their rent. In order to cover expenses related to maintaining shared spaces within a commercial property.
  2. Full Tenant Responsibility In a fully occupied center the tenants essentially bear the entire burden of CAM Fees.That relieves the property owners from these maintenance costs.
  3. Financial Reserves Many CAM & HOA Agreements include provisions for building up a 5-Year Reserve. This financial buffer ensures that property maintenance can continue uninterrupted. Even during economic downturns.
  4. Gatekeepers & Property Managers The existence of Purveyors, Gatekeepers, & Property Managers is intricately linked to CAM fees. These entities oversee the maintenance & upkeep of shared areas within the property. While ensuring that CAM funds are allocated effectively.
  5. Third-Party Management In many cases, third-party management companies are tasked with managing CAM funds. Ensuring that necessary maintenance tasks, such as pressure washing, landscaping, & lighting maintenance, are carried out promptly.
  6. Difference from Triple Net Leases While CAM fees are a common feature of commercial leases, They differ from Triple Net Leases. Understanding these distinctions is crucial for navigating commercial property management effectively.
  7. Challenges for Apartment Complex Owners Unlike commercial property owners who rely on CAM fees for maintenance funding. The apartment complex owners must manage expenses directly from rent collections. Can pose unique challenges in budgeting for cleaning &maintenance services.
In PWI Commercial Sales Class Blog, you'll find further insights into the nuances of CAM fees. Including their significance in commercial property management. Understanding these dynamics is essential for successfully navigating the world of commercial sales & property management.
The Power of C.A.M. Accounts

A Game-Changer in Commercial Property Management

C.A.M. (Common Area Maintenance) Accounts are often Misunderstood.
They actually hold tremendous potential for those who grasp their significance. In our latest blog post was the transformative impact of C.A.M. Accounts. This insightful discussion that could potentially change the way you view and approach your commercial property endeavors.

  • Understanding the distinction between low-hanging and high-hanging fruit in the industry
  • The profound effect a few C.A.M. Accounts can have on changing one's financial trajectory
  • Testimonials from individuals whose lives have been transformed through Ron's Mentorship & Guidance
Building Relationships & Knowing When to Follow Up
With commercial sales the art of follow-up is often underestimated. Just because a client doesn't respond immediately doesn't mean your bid was rejected. So, remember, sincerity and timing are your best allies. Build trust, ask the right questions, and watch your client base grow organically.

Key Tips
๐Ÿ“… Timing is Key Knowing when to follow up is crucial. Understanding your client's annual budget cycle can give you valuable insight into the best times to reach out.
โ“ Questions to Ask Instead of relying on a script, focus on asking the right questions. Understand your client's needs and preferences to tailor your approach effectively.
๐Ÿ’ฌ Analogies for Understanding Ron Musgraves, our expert instructor, compares the sales process to dating. Just like cheesy punchlines won't win you a date, they won't win you a client. Building genuine relationships is the key to long-term success.
๐ŸŒŸ Honesty Wins Building a lasting customer base requires honesty and authenticity. Cheesy sales tactics may yield quick results, but they won't foster meaningful relationships.
