Not sure how we go from 75 degrees to Thanksgiving in what seems like overnight, but here we are- it's November!!!

As we all concentrate on shifting gears into winter-mode, it's easy to lose sight of the successes we have enjoyed throughout the last season.  Silver Creek encourages everyone to sit back, take a deep breath, be grateful for the year you have had, and give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.

We appreciate any part, large or small, that we have played in partnering with you in reaching your business goals.  The relationships we forge with our customers go much deeper than filling orders....and that, by far, is the rewarding part of this business.   "Thank you" once again for giving us the opportunity to serve you.

Remember to Sell "The Extras"
Sell your customer on the whole package and increase your profits

extras Next time you take your family out for dinner at one of those fancy steakhouses, bring extra cash. 
Most are using suggestive selling to sell add-ons to the basic steak like vegetables and even hollandaise sauce.  Of course, the "sides" are the most profitable part of the sale.
Many contractors stop selling when they get the order for the steak.   They forget to follow through, and get the order for all the "trimmings" that add profit and increase customer satisfaction.   

These contractors are breaking one of the most important rules of marketing: sell as much as you can, as often as you can, to the customer you already know.
Increased profitability comes with developing a menu of add-on items. Popular add-on categories for a landscape contractor include lighting, ponds and water gardens, retaining walls, specimen plantings, seasonal color and more.   In developing your list of options, educate yourself about what new offerings are becoming popular in your area.  
Selling more to the same customer makes sense for your operations. Your crew is already mobilized; you have your equipment on the site.  It's pretty easy to drop in some wire for landscape lights in the irrigation trench or dig an extra hole for a simple water feature. Spending MORE time at a job site might actually benefit your bottom line.

So develop your company's menu of options and increase your dollars on every job.  Then treat your employees to one of those fancy steak dinners with the extra profit!
