The Importance of SaaS for Plumbing Marketing

Grayson_JamesJuly 7th, 2015

Plumbing businesses have come a long way since ServiceTitan co-founder Vahe’s father started a plumbing company. Vahe saw first-hand how much hard work was involved in running a profitable business. As he grew up, he could see the problems small service businesses faced when it came to marketing and deciding where and when to spend marketing dollars that made sense.

Most residential home service businesses depend on generating leads through referrals or targeted advertising via newspapers, websites, digital directories and a variety of online resources. As a plumbing business owner, you may think because you are seeing a profit, you are doing everything right. And you may, in fact, be doing many things right. But what if you could increase your profitability and were able to see it in black and white?

In the past, this wasn’t possible for a small-to-medium-sized plumbing business. For years, the few options for back-end plumbing software available to track and implement marketing strategies were quite expensive and out of reach for most companies. To make matters worse, even if a residential home service business was able to afford business management software, it was tedious and had many holes in its programming.

ServiceTitan’s founders saw the gaps and through years of development, created software specifically for these trade businesses that was both effective and easy to use. With ServiceTitan’s dedicated SaaS system, plumbing business owners can:

. Measure how well staff converts marketing leads into appointments . Track all marketing campaigns automatically . See which campaigns are more profitable than others . Measure ROI for every campaign . Identify geographic areas where marketing is most effective . Track and record calls to identify lost revenue and institute additional training to increase revenue In an extremely competitive service business marketplace, just doing OK will not keep your business going for long. And, if you do not know where and why you need to improve your marketing efforts, you are taking a big gamble.

Chris Gist moved to the suburbs of Pensacola, Fla., in 2017 with the goal of using his 20 years of management experience to find new work closer to home. He landed a job as an office manager for a local plumbing company. That’s where Gist met master plumber Christopher Stewart, who was the company’s lead technician. But when new owners took over, Stewart left to do his own thing. Unhappy with the situation under new ownership, Gist left too. In October 2018, he joined a buddy to do roofing jobs in nearby Panama City for a couple of months after Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle.
