12:00 – ‘A Higher Hourly Rate for Self-Employed Gardeners’

Gary Edwards –  The Gardeners Guild

People thinking of starting a career in maintenance often say that ‘where they live no one wants to pay more than £12 an hour for a gardener’. We always like to give them tips on why £30 an hour is actually realistic.
We will be covering the following points so that attendees understand that a higher hourly rate for self-employed gardeners is possible with some simple planning techniques:

– Cashflow forecast (identify the minimum you need to earn and how to predict your income)
– How to calculate your minimum hourly rate
– Develop a pricing strategy to earn more than this – easily!
– Diary planning (how to have a paid holiday!)
– Marketing tips to find the right customers with minimal effort.!
