Residential or Commercial?

If you’ve watched the training video I talk about which is better to operate in, Residential or Commercial.

Here is the breakdown which is best:


  • Difficult, hard, and complex
  • Wasting hours estimating, tendering, phone calls to clients, and endless bureaucracy (unbillable time)
  • High dollar value but low-profit margins. (when you look at how many hours you put into the project, you’ll realise there’s little left over for you as the business owner.
  • Not recession-proof. Your business relies on the success of other businesses.
  • How many small to medium-sized businesses shut down during lockdown or have suffered economic hardship. Lots!
  • Bad cash flow (you get paid, 14, 30, 60, 90 days later) and you also have to waste time and chase up unpaid, late invoices all the time.


  • It’s quick, easy, and stress-free.
  • High-profit margins (if done correctly)
  • Great for cash flow (you get paid as soon as the job is done. Would you like to pay via cash or card?
  • Lots of small jobs = lots of money
  • More fulfilling and rewarding (Mrs. Jones writes you a testimonial about how awesome you are and how she’s going to tell all her friends and family about you.
  • Every hour on site is billable time.
  • Recession-proof. There’s always a Mrs Jones who needs some work done around her home even during lockdowns.

In a nutshell, If you’re wondering how the best and most profitable tradie/service businesses win and keep winning, it’s because 80% or more of their revenue comes from the residential service and maintenance sector because of the above reasons.
