being thats its in the middle of the season... whats the best way to get more customers right now? is it possible? im looking to get more contracts then a btt (by the trip) deal, what are good ways to do this or is it better to keep the btt then contracted price for the year? would like to get more commercial accounts, like apt complex or business. my father does mainenance for a lady that owns about 10 apt complexs around the county, i would say the 2 farthest ones are about 15-20 miles apart , so whats the best way to go about this... ive never put a bid in on a commercial account and i have no idea what to charge and i have no idea what she pays now... would it be rude of me to ask her how much she pays the current , or should i just put a bid in on what i feel is good for my time and effort and go from there. i am completly lost on this topic, should i wait until next year bc of the current contract or talk to her now? ideas?
