11Know Your Niche
While plumbing services include pipe repair and drain cleaning, there is a lot of competition in such commonly provided services. If you base your business on these, you are going to face a tough competition from everywhere. This is where the importance of finding out your niche lies.
Do some research to know which plumbing areas are least covered by other companies. For example, your venture can repair a custom bath or it can offer specialized services in the installation of water pipes and gas pipes. Or, you may specially deal in the installation of sanitary equipment. Your niche may be commercial maintenance, hospitals, nursing homes or large scale buildings and warehouses. Whichever it may be, make sure that you pick a niche that you can handle well.
