Whether you’re just starting out as a tradesperson, or looking to get a better work-life balance, 2024 could be your year.

Our top business tips for 2024

Whether you’re a plumber, electrician, landscape gardener, bricklayer… or anything in between… there is always more you could be doing to grow your business.

As well as benefitting from our ‘Become the Boss’ series, here are some ideas for you to consider in 2024.

  • Offer additional services – ready to branch out into something new?
  • Try affiliate marketing – working better with other tradespeople to get more work
  • Training apprentices – do what you can to help reduce the UK skills gap
  • Think seasonally – do you need to get smarter with jobs throughout the year?
  • Think sustainably – could you offer green energy solutions?
  • Be available – a quick response or offering emergency services is more likely to win you work
  • Look for repeat jobs – why not remind customers about expiring jobs or PAT testing?
  • Time to upskill – learning a new skill could mean you win more work or larger jobs
  • Get associated – 2024 might be the right time to join a trade association in your industry
