It is not discretionary anymore. Sales is a big part of any business. To attract people to sell to, is dependent on what you have been doing all this while.

Customers looking for decent custom home builders will definitely ask around for friends’ and relatives’ opinions. So if you have done good work , it will be the only marketing you need.
Constructing buildings and relationships
Relationship management is also very important. It is actually a part of the customer service and the good quality work you do for your clients. If you are a builder, you will know that more profits result in office erections as they are of basic structure. Offices are built by business customers rather than end-customers; that is, your customer will sell or rent it to a third party. If that is their business, they will keep on doing that and it is your opportunity to have a life-long partnership with them, a relationship. There, a dedicated contact person, quick service, problem solving etc. can play a huge role. If you employ high caliber individuals such as engineers and architects, make sure they are also aware of these important customers. It won’t hurt for you all to serve them a bit specially than others. A recurring customer is difficult to find nowadays.
When you decide to take up a business, choose wisely which one to go ahead with. Today, single houses are no longer built unless in the rural or suburban areas and by the wealthy.

Family home inhabitants might want to go for a knock down rebuild Castle Hill. Identify the top markets and play accordingly. There are many steps to be taken to improve a business. But you need to train the staff as well. No matter what noble objectives you have, if the people meeting and talking to customers don’t know it, then there is no meaning of anything you do. So train them and make your business successful.
