The cost of living crises refers to the fall in ‘real’ disposable incomes that the UK has experienced since late 2021. It is being caused predominantly by high inflation outstripping wage and benefit increases and has been further compacted by recent tax increases; a knock-on effect from the Covid pandemic and the Ukraine war which is currently on-going.
Family’s all over the UK have all been hit by this crisis and everything which is essential has been affected, from the food we eat to the price of the energy we use to heat our homes. Even petrol prices are spiralling.
That’s why it is more important than ever to make sure you win the project that you are quoting for and not wasting valuable petrol money visiting prospects that don’t convert into sales. This is because it takes a lot of time to create detailed quotations and most tradespeople still use either pen and paper or bog-standard quotes and estimates that lack detail and clarity.
Homeowners love clarity
Homeowners are professional people that expect a good standard of communication. Your quotes and estimates say a lot about you and your business and are usually the first point of contact between you and the customer. Homeowners often receive the same type of quotation and if you truly want to win the job in a highly competitive environment you need to stand head and shoulders above the competition and be more professional than the next guy.
