You're Going to Have a GREAT Year! Here's Why
After a year of disruptions, it's nice to look ahead and see many positive things coming in 2021.

Demand will be really strong. Homeowners have money and want to spend it. Credit is easy to access at record low rates both for refinancing and home equity loans. Remind them what they need to buy - and that they need to buy it from you!

Home values are rising. When home values are increasing, homeowners are reminded to invest in their largest asset. Show them how they can enhance their landscapes.

Home construction is not keeping up with demand. Inventory of new houses for sale is at record lows, boosting both new construction and remodeling. This will drive even more demand for landscape services.

The outdoor living spaces trend continues to expand. They want their landscapes to be nice! Capture easy add-on sales for enhancements like lighting, WiFi controllers and much more. Show them what they need, and they'll show you the money.

The landscape bonanza continues. Let's maximize your success!

Kichler Tip: Closing the Deal with Landscape Lighting Customers
When you're on the verge of closing the sale but the customer is hesitating, explore some tips from Kichler that can help you seal the deal. Some example situations:

Win the right comparison - not the wrong one Don't let cost rule your conversation. Listen to your customer's cost concerns but make the case for the total value of your services as a reputable contractor. Your customer is not just buying a product. They are buying the confidence and peace of mind that will come with your professional design and execution, plus the quality of Kichler Lighting's products and their industry-leading warranty. Your company and Kichler will stand behind the customer.
 
Be open and honest - and quiet Ask the customer, "How far off are we on price?" Give the customer time and silence to respond. (Count silently to 10 if you have to.) By providing a number, the customer comes closer to a deal with you. Having a definite number helps you brainstorm ways to close the gap.
