The Plan 

A good pest control marketing plan is necessary to know where you are headed and what you should be doing along the way.

Measurable Goals 

Any good plan will have goals that can be measured.  From customer counts to expenses, recurring revenue to product costs, you must have well researched goals in place that can be evaluated and adjusted as needed.  The right goals will let you know if you are headed in the right direction or if you need to change your plans.  As you achieve the right goals, your business will become more stable, more profitable and successful.
