How To Start A Pest Control Business...
If you’re reading this page, you must be somewhat interested or curious about starting a pest control business. It’s a great business to be in: people hate bugs, and they’re willing to pay a lot of money to keep them out of their house. The best part of the equation is that the costs of running a pest control business are SUPER LOW, and the profit margins from a pest control business are SUPER HIGH.
How Profitable Is A Pest Control Business?
Well, I’ll tell you how and why I got into pest control… When I was in my early 20′s, I had tried a few different sales jobs. I was pretty good at sales; never the best, and never the worst. At one point, I heard from a friend of mine that sales reps for pest control companies made a few hundred dollars per sale, and that they could easily sell several accounts each day. So, I got a job as a pest control sales rep.
I Made $30,000 My First 3 Months… As a Salesman
Long story short, I made over $30,000 my first 3 months as a pest control salesman…. and I wasn’t a smooth-talking schmoozer, and I didn’t work very hard… seriously. After 2 years of selling accounts and seeing how a pest control company works, it finally dawned on me that if a pest control company can afford to pay me this much as a sales rep, the company itself has got to be making a TON of money…
So, for the next six months I focused on learning the business side of pest control, so that I could start my own company.Then, I did.
Since then, I’ve gone on to start several of my own businesses, and have been involved in businesses that were built up fast and sold for a lot of money.
