Pest Control Marketing – Addressing your biggest fears!

Today’s pest control marketing tip is this:  Until you address your fears and come to terms with them you will never reach your full potential. As a matter of fact, you probably won’t come anywhere near it!

FACT: Everyone is afraid of something. And in the context of this post, I’m referring to fears associated with growing your pest control business or your wildlife control business…or any small business for that matter.

Some of the most common fears in relation to growing your business might be fear of…

  • Failure
  • Rejection
  • Poverty
  • Dealing with employees
  • Selling
  • Management
  • Regulations and Regulators
  • Being sued
  • Loss of self esteem

The list could go on…but hopefully you get my point. Everyone is afraid of something.

The best way you can overcome your fears is to learn how to avoid making them a reality.

Example:  The best way to avoid failure is to learn everything you can about how to become successful and apply what you learn. That is the surest way to insure success!

Another Example:  The best way to avoid poverty is to learn everything you can about how to make money and apply what you learn. That is the surest way to insure that you will be financially secure!

I’m sure you get my point.

And…when it comes to learning…there is a ton of FREE information available to you…on the internet, from Amazon, and from individual mentors and coaches you can turn to for help. All you have to do is seek…and you will find it!

As a matter of fact…I have tons of FREE sales and marketing training, tips, strategies and techniques that are GUARANTEED to help you grow your business and be successful. All you have to do is go get it and use it.

Pest Control Marketing – FREE marketing help for YOU and your business!

There are a lot of pest control marketing companies out there (here) on the internet. I see them and some of them I explore. And I can tell you this for a FACT.  Most of what you see is a load of crap coming from people who have never even been in the pest control business, much less owned and operated their own.

It’s the same cookie-cutter marketing that you hear from marketing professors when you get your college degree. The vast majority of them have never sold anything in their lives, other than convincing someone to hire them as a professor.

I’m venting here as you can tell. But, I had an employee once who was working on his masters degree in marketing at a popular local university.  And when he and I would discuss what they were teaching him, I just couldn’t believe it. Clueless!

As for me, I’ve been in the pest control industry for 45 years, including owning and operating my own pest control business, which I grew from a one-man-with-a-spray can operation into a successful million dollar business.  I’ve been there/done that.

And for the past 10 years I have worked with pest control businesses all over the United States, as well as Australia and The U.K. My coaching clients grow their businesses on average between 25% – 45% a year…with some much higher. So when I tell you something will work for you, it is because I have seen it work for everyone else…and I know it will work for YOU too.

OK. Vent over.  Here’s what I have for you to help you today. You need to go visit

Pest Control Marketing – Why coaching can change your life and your business

Pest Control Marketing Tip # 111

Question: What do Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Merryl Streep, Chipper Jones, Peyton Manning, Robert DeNiro, Cher, Donald Trump, Al Pacino, Bill Gates, and Andrea Boccelli all have in common?

Answer: They all have or had great coaches, mentors and advisors.

Were it not for that, those people I just listed would not be famous today.

Throughout history, successful people, no matter what their field of endeavor, have realized the importance of coaching and mentoring.

Intelligent people know they can’t get to where they want to be by themselves.

Top professionals seek out guidance from trusted advisors.

They also make it a point to learn something from everyone they come in contact with. And they use that information to help themselves achieve a higher level success and wealth.

If you are a business owner…or an employee…you need to seek out trusted people (i.e. role models) who have already done what YOU seek to do.

Whether your goal is to build a successful business, or work your way up within one, you need to study successful people and model their behaviors.

One thing I have found over the years is that truly successful people are also grateful people. They didn’t arrive at where they are alone.  They were coached, guided and mentored along the way.  And, almost without exception, they are eager to share their knowledge and experiences with others.

They realize what Ralph Waldo Emerson referred to as “The Law Of Compensation”. The more you give, the more you get in return.  And the more you get in return, the more you give back.

I once heard someone say that the difference between a rich man and a broke man is this: A rich man seeks to learn everything he can from everyone he comes in contact with. A broke man isn’t interested in learning anything from anyone…because he already knows everything there is to know!

Fact: If you want to be successful, you need to do what successful people do…and you will succeed.

If you want to fail, just do what failures do…and you will fail also.

Bottom line:  If you own a business, or if you work for a business, you are not alone…so don’t pretend to be.  You need to constantly seek out the advice and guidance of successful people who have been there/done that…and who are eager to help YOU go there and do it too!

Pest Control Marketing – If you’re serious about selling you need to read this!

Pest Control Marketing Tip: How SERIOUS are YOU about SELLING?

Each time I present my “Thirty Second Selling Workshop” it reaffirms the fact that, with rare exceptions, small business owners and sales people just don’t take selling nearly as seriously as they should.

And…because they don’t…they lose sales over and over again.

Let me ask you this: Do you have a sales presentation?

Is it written out?

Is it a powerful, compelling, dynamic, hypnotic, seductive, well-thought-out, scripted, proven presentation laid out in proper psychological sequence guaranteed to generate a YES answer?

Can you deliver it with conviction and purpose…even in your sleep?

FACT: No matter what the industry, when you get to the top sales performers…and I mean the world class sales people who win the national awards every year…they all have certain things in common.

  • They take selling very seriously!
  • They are constantly working on their sales presentations.
  • They know that every word, every inflection, every variation is equally important.
  • They know it backwards and forwards by heart.
  • They have notebooks and/or recorders close by so if…or I should say when…they hit on another good idea…they capture it and work it into their sales presentation.
  • They never stop sharpening and honing their sales presentations.
  • They are never satisfied that it is as good as it could be.
  • They wake up in the middle of the night to write down ideas.
  • They never take selling for granted.
  • They are spiritual and superstitious when it comes to selling and their sales presentation.
  • They literally never expect to be told NO.
  • They never stop learning how to improve their selling skills and increase their closing percentages.
  • They are laser focused.
  • If they are not out selling, they are probably working on their sales presentation.
  • They track every sale, every lead, every contact and every conversation.
  • They post-analyze every presentation.
  • And, maybe most important of all…relentless follow-up…THEY NEVER GIVE UP!

So…let me ask YOU this question: How much time do YOU spend learning how to sell more and better?

It doesn’t matter whether you are in a full-time sales position…or if you want to sell your boss (or your employees) on a specific idea you have…or maybe you just want to persuade your spouse, your child, your neighbor or your friend, to do a specific thing…YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SELL!

Winging it and playing it off the cuff will only get you so far.

Bottom line:  If you rely only on the art of selling and ignore the science of selling, you will never reach your true potential and you will leave a ton of money on the table for the other guys (the ones who do take selling seriously)!

That’s just the way it is.

I hope you find this article helpful.

Hal

Pest Control Marketing – Why timid salespeople have scrawny kids

Pest  Control Marketing Tip # 139

Zig Ziglar said, “Timid salespeople have scrawny kids!”.  What he meant by that statement was this: If you are afraid to go out and sell…and sell boldly…you won’t make enough money to feed your kids very well.

Most salespeople are not nearly as bold…or as committed…as they should be.

They leave money on the table because of the following reasons:

  • They are afraid to ask for it.
  • They don’t follow up enough to finally get it.
  • They don’t have a powerful, dynamic, compelling, seductive, hypnotic and irresistible sales presentation.
  • They don’t believe they need that last one.
  • They are not constantly striving to get better

These are only a few of the reasons that salespeople don’t get all of the money they could…or should.

Click on this link below to listen to the latest episode: http://www.PestControlMarketingPodcast.com

Unlike most coaches and sales trainers in the pest control industry I’ve put my money where my mouth is for many years.  I’m in my 45th year in this industry.  A actually started my own pest control business and grew it into a successful million dollar business. Then, in 2008, I sold that business to help other PCOs and WCOs learn how to get on the growth track and grow their businesses. If I had known then what I know now, I could have grown my business 3 or 4 times as fast. And THAT is what I want to show YOU how to do!

The Pest Control Marketing Podcast began a couple of years ago as a way to give PCOs and WCOs more access to the programs and materials I wanted to share with them.

In 2017, small business internet marketing guru Mike Stewart joined me on the podcasts. Mike is one of pioneers of marketing small businesses on the internet using audio and videos.  He has been a mentor of mine for over 30 years and brings so much value to my world that it would be hard to explain in one blog post. And he will do the same for YOU also if you will just listen to what he says.
