Snapshot of the business before starting with us ​

Outright Plumbing and Maintenance is a family run Plumbing and Maintenance business in Melbourne, owned by Ben and Sarah Rayner. 

BEFORE

Some of the big issues Ben was facing

  • Overworked with little time off
  • Price focused customers draining his time
  • Unpredictable business
  • Too much supervision and putting out day-to-day
    fires

BEFORE

What Ben wanted to achieve when he first started

  • Financial security for his family.
  • Expand without taking more work by relying on his
    team.
  • Making smart, data-backed decisions.

THE CHALLENGE

Unpredictable Clients + Mismanaged Team = Slow Growth

Ben spends night after night growing his plumbing business in Melbourne. He loves his work and enjoys building it up for his family’s financial future.

But, overwhelmed and overworked, it burns him out.

“It’s hard not knowing where your next 5 clients are gonna come from”.

Although Ben was doing $750K annually, there wasn’t a steady revenue stream. His clients would engage in price wars and drag on projects longer than necessary.

Ben had 7 employees, but his team did not have the work ethic
necessary to exceed client expectations every time.

Success still seemed far off for Outright Plumbing.

This is where we came in.

"I needed a way to grow faster and autopilot my business."
  - Ben

“I can go on holiday again. My business can grow without me. This is priceless!"

The Solution

Recurring high paying clients + better team management

We helped Ben set up an automatic process to find high paying but easy to work with clients.

Using our proven system to market and pre-qualify leads.

Ben only accepts clients that respect the high quality of his work, and are happy to pay well for it.

We established a dashboard of key business metrics that Ben could look at any time. He could make decisions backed by data, rather than emotion and
guesswork.

We also coached him on the fundamentals of delegation and project management. And set up proven processes to get the most out of team meetings.

“There’s so much more to building a trades business than being good with your tools...I never knew half of this stuff”” - Ben

The Results

300% increase in revenue. A new business. A bigger team. A new home.

With our help, Ben has built a marketing and sales machine.
Ben has a predictable stream of high-quality clients coming in month after month. With 20 members now on his team, he delegates much more.

With our team management systems in place, his confidence in his team has skyrocketed.

They can get things done without him. Freeing up more time for his family and himself.

Ben now makes quick data-backed decisions using his critical numbers dashboard. “Relying on numbers instead of opinion and emotion has tripled our execution speed”.

Ben has transformed himself from being a good tradie to a stellar business owner. In fact, he took all that he learnt with us, and launched another business
with his sister Sarah. Within a year, they launched ‘Outright Maintenance’ which is already generating significant profit – during the pandemic!

What has Ben used this extra income for?

“A new house to welcome a new baby! Also giving back to my community”

"“Stefan and his team tripled my revenue and turned me into a world class business owner. Couldn’t have done it myself!” - Ben
