Making Sure You Get The Best Price

Haggling is an art form. Ask one of the many business owners who do it on a regular basis.

As Michael King from the Sarasota Mobile Mechanic tells me "haggling is everything in this business. If you don't know what you're doing you can actually cause a lot of damage and really hurt your business. That's why it's so important to know what you're doing and making sure that you do it an eloquent way."

Here are some tips to get the most out of haggling.

1) Be Quick

2) Be Prepared

3) Be Respectful

Hope that helps guys!

Bartering With Your Supplier

Suppliers can be difficult to work with. Often times they haggle prices and make life generally hard for contractors. Vaness is a contractor for a shower door company here in Sarasota and she tells us a few tips.

1) ALWAYS have a backup supplier. If they haggle with you, be sure to haggle back by having a backup supplier.

2) Don't be afraid to ask for a fair price. Fair prices are the best way to ensure a good working relationship with your supplier.

3) Try to be nice. Yes, being nice has a great affect on your business and your relationships.

Thanks Vanessa!

How To Trade Services For More Money

In this post, we would like to highlight the art of trading your services for more money. When it comes to making more money for the services you provide, there are 3 certain criteria that are critically important.

1) ALWAYS provide quality service. As Jeremy from Dream Closets LLC in Sarasota, Florida says, "Quality service is the number one difference maker when it comes to running a successful business and a not so successful one. If you don't provide quality work, don't expect to be able to charge very much for your services." You can check out their website at Custom Closets Sarasota

2) Charge what you're worth. So many small business owners don't value their time as they should. As Isaac from A-1 Security Locksmith in Milwaukee says: "You gotta value your time." 

3) Make sure that you know your market. Many markets can be very different in terms of pricing. For instance, one person may charge twice as much as another person in a different market. By knowing your market rates, you know how much to charge for your services.

Trading Cars For Dollars...

Snowflake trading co has a long history of making trades in the auto industry. I have a buddy, Dustin, who always tells me "dude, you guys gotta get into the auto trading game!" So about 2 years ago we finally decided to take a look at it.

Boy were we surprised! The auto space is not for the faint of heart. Trading autos can be a tough gig but as long as you know how to play it cool, you'll be just fine. 

The trick to trading autos is this, get in early and swoop fast and hard. When looking into the vehicle, it's more important to look into price rather than what's in under the hood. If you want more advice, sign up for a newsletter at the top.

P.S. Shout out to Dustin and his business D's Mobile Detailing here in Florida. Those guys rule!!!
