The process of attaining a commercial account

Hello,

My name is Malena and I will be going out to pick up some more commercial accounts for Smithco Lawncare.
I have experience in sales, but am a little unsure of the process of selling lawncare services to a commercial property....

Help Please!

you need to visit the properties you are interested in and find out who is in charge of the maintenance, or what property managment company is in charge of it, and ask if they are accepting bids for mowing.

Door to door is the best way for Commercial. Find out who is in charge and leave a flier or something with information about your company for them. That way when you are not a total stranger. When you submit a bid make sure it is a professional bid with a cover page, information on your company, insurance papers, copies of any licenses you have, proof of workers compensation and put it all in a report cover. We have been told before that we got the job just based on our bid packet. They said they figured if we put that much attention to the detail of our bid then we will surely put that attention to detail into their property.
