We successfully started a HVAC business
My husband and I sunk all of our savings into an Heating, Ventilation and A/C repair shop, it was my husband’s dream to own his own company and he was fed up working for the man! He worked for the same heating and air conditioning company for 10 years and he only received a raise three times, and my guy worked his tail off for that company and his sales were over $100,000 each year.
My husband and I did not see a penny of the proceeds! When the first of the year came and went and my fiance did not get a raise, both of us decided it was time to take a leap of faith.
The first thing both of us did was hire a web design company to create a website and logo for the company. My fiance and I had a lot of fantastic ideas for the website, however neither of us did not know anything about design, graphics, or programming. We found a young guy in college looking that needed school credit. He only charged us about half the price of a proper internet programmer and he did an amazing job with our ideas. The logo and modern graphics pop and they unquestionably make the page. The guy added keywords and optimized our page so search engines will find us. I think the website is going to help drive more clients to our business. The people I was with and I have a small number of proper commercial Heating and A/C clients and both of us have a few customers as well. So far the sales and repair calls have been sporadic, but I think the website is going to change a lot of things.
