It’s your extra day, what are you going to do with it?
Since 2016 is a leap year, we have a bonus day, this Monday, February 29th. And if you’re like many of our customers, your business is in the middle of planning and preparing for the coming season. What better time to have a bonus day? Most of your variable costs are down in the offseason, and most fixed costs are billed monthly. So it’s almost like a free day of productivity with little or no costs.
So how are you going to spend it? Here’s a few suggestions:
Do Annual Maintenance
Take some time to inspect your equipment, ranging from trucks and loaders down to smaller power equipment. Use the day to make sure your gear is all ready for the coming season with oil changes, parts replaced and a complete inspection. If you put it off, you might not get a chance in the spring.
Get it Clean
Throughout the season, dirt, dust and debris will collect in your equipment, adding weight and heat, and making things harder to handle and operate. Take some time on Leap Day to remove the hazards of dirty equipment with a deep cleaning.
Find Some New Clients
Put aside your daily routine and use Leap Day to find some new business. Call old clients, knock on doors, or produce quotes on spec. And if you use Go iLawn / Go iPave, you can get some real estimating and quoting work done on leap day, regardless of whether you’re targeting customers you know or even just houses up and down a street. And never mind the weather; it’s always Sunny on Go iLawn / Go iPave, including February 29th.
