Even after rapid growth, it’s not uncommon for landscape businesses to hit a plateau. After watching revenue steadily increase for several years, it can suddenly get “stuck” at a certain point. While this number can differ from business-to-business, it does seem that the $1 million mark is a particularly stubborn plateau where many business owners appear to level out. They did all the hard work to get to that mark and then suddenly they don’t know how to take it to the next level.
If you’ve leveled out and growth appears to be stagnant, you’re likely in need of a refreshed landscape sales strategy. Oftentimes what happens is that the strategies which worked at a lower level revenue may need revamping to accommodate the company’s needs at a higher level.
