Find some properties you are intrested in and go talk to them. Find out when they will take new bids etc... Leave them a flyer, brochure, and business card if at all possible. You want to get your name out to them and let them know you are professional. Good luck!
Let's put it out there. There is no secret formula, tactic, or tirck in getting commercial work. You simply audit their property. make suggested improvement in writing and submit your bid. The next thing is simply a phone book ad. when they are looking for bids they will call you.
Im trying some ideas on this topic and if they work I will let
you know. Question: who would be the person to address
a bid request to at a church? (title) I assume it would be a board or panel -I live in rural Georgia and there small churches everywhere .Like to hear pros and cons on bidding on these.
Most of the time it is who you know. We maintain the hospital in town because we knew the retiring groundskeeper very well and he suggested to the head of maintenance to give us a try. Also, as far as new construction of commercial accounts, a lot of times your residential customers will know the owner or builder and you can get your name in that way. You will start running into price wars when you start bidding on commercials that take bids every year. You better be damn sure you know ALL your costs before you start to play that game.
