The nation is under a blazing heat advisory, which means nothing but big bucks for your business, right? So you’re beefing up on staff, adding machinery, and basically raking in the dough. Yet when the rush is over, you don’t want your funds to “take a dive,” “get burned,” or “be all wet,” do you? Protect your investment in your business and take the plunge with collection letters, one way to bring a tidal wave of revenue back your way.
It’s Sink or Swim
Ever hear the term “Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink?” You don’t want to see your installed pools everywhere and not have a drop of pay. When customers default on their payments, a pool isn’t something you can easily slide in and repossess, whether it is above or in-ground. The repo business is hot enough now to have earned its own reality show, but for pool companies, you need to turn to a collections company to do the heavy lifting.
Don’t Just Float
The pool business doesn’t necessarily generate repeat customers (unless they move), but keeping good connections can serve you well with referrals and testimonials. That doesn’t mean you have to write off revenue when you want to be nice. It’s exactly a reason to dive in, and you can maintain that balance by using collections options such as first-party letters and written demands. These communications appear to come from you, with your pool company logo emblazoned on each piece, but are really issued from the knowledgeable collection company and handled by its expert staff.
The Water’s Fine
So once you’re ready to explore how collection letters and calls can bring more of the money you earned back into your pockets, don’t do a belly flop. When you split that water, you want it to be a nice, smooth entry with little splash. Let a collections company, with people who have expert experience in your particular field, make that jump for you, as well as support you in every step (or splash) of the way. So, strap on the inflatable donut and floaties and come on in, the water’s just fine.
