What equipment is needed

If you’re doing odd jobs around the house, then all you’ll need is a toolbox with standard tools such as screwdrivers and wrenches. Depending on how large your set is, you can get them at any hardware store for reasonable prices. If it’s something more significant like installing an AC unit or building new shelves in your garage, then things may be more expensive but not too bad if you do some research beforehand on places where you could rent equipment from on-demand! For example, a chainsaw will cost a fraction of the price if you rent it rather than buying it. Another option would be borrowing from friends who have extra equipment they don’t mind lending out if you’re starting.

How to find new customers

When starting, you are most likely going to have a difficult time finding customers. One of the best ways is by using your social network! Ask friends if they know anyone who might need help with their home improvements. For example, it might be an elderly neighbor that needs help with the installation of a wheelchair ramp. You can also search for local Facebook groups where other people in your city discuss things like how much someone charged them for odd jobs around the house, etc. If it’s been done before, then chances are there will be a group about it. In addition to asking family members and posting online, another good way to get new leads would be to contact businesses in town such as restaurants or convenience stores since they’ll often have bathrooms needing repair from lack of maintenance.

Different types of marketing

Now that you know what equipment is needed and how to find customers, it’s time for some marketing. People usually think advertising or pushing their services is all they need to get new business, but often people don’t care about your service until after they’ve already used it! A good way around this would be giving out freebies such as candy bars or pens with your information on them when going door-to-door offering estimates. Another idea would be hosting events at local businesses to tell everyone who attends what you do. In addition to these tips, there are many different types of marketing strategies, so feel free to experiment and see which one works best for you! If done correctly, then starting up your own handyman business shouldn’t be too difficult.

If you’re looking for a career that is more than just getting paid, then starting your own handyman business might be the right choice for you! It’s not as easy as it sounds, but anyone can create their own company with hard work and perseverance.
