Business Model

The business model for a pest control company is not as simple as one may imagine. Some pest control companies specialize in a certain geographic area, whereas others take a broad approach to the market and provide and service that makes a profit in a geography within a reasonable distance.

Marketing Plan

A successful marketing strategy for a pest control business depends upon the geography, pricing, and service structure. However, we have seen Yellow Page listings, the BBB listing, and digital marketing to be among the most effective for any local service industry. Service buyers desire to know that your company has a good reputation in the market and is capable of delivering its promoted services.

Financial Projections

The financial model of a pest control company is wholly unique to the nature of the business model. For instance, some companies may have a high profit margin by having a sole owner responsible for making service calls.
