Owning a Typical Lawn Care Company is Totally Overrated!
Think about the typical company. It doesn't matter if they serve the landscape, irrigation, maintenance, lawn care, or construction segment...
- Beat the owner to death with constant pressure and stress.
- Make vacations nearly impossible most of the year.
- Run the owner's life.
- Have frequent cash flow problems.
- Are constantly subject to low ball competitor's bids.
- Do not produce true wealth and are not sellable when the owner eventually wants to sell.
- Don't pay the owner nearly enough money for all their work, risk and headaches.
In most cases the owner is so incredibly busy that the service and quality level is never as good as it could or should be. Employees are rarely managed at the level needed, equipment maintenance is behind, customers and prospects don’t always get called back, quotes are late, estimate are off the cuff guesses and inaccurate, collections are a frustrating nightmare, invoices go out late, the books and receipts are a mess, the paperwork required on each employee/contractor isn’t being gathered, there is way too much email to respond to, the marketing either isn’t happening or it’s not working, expenses are too high, some of the customers are so much trouble they are not worth having…
...there is just way too much to keep up with and stay in control of!

There is a much better and much easier way!
I've been an owner/partner in multiple service companies over the years. I've made some really good decisions and plenty of bad ones. I've had a few businesses that were mediocre and never became anything exciting and I'm working on a few that seem to be homeruns.
I've learned a lot.
Along the way I've met a lot of really well-intentioned business owners with big dreams.
Especially in this business.
Unfortunately, dreams, unless guided by proven best practices, using the best tools, typically become frustrating failures.
We created BACKTELL — the company behind Service AutoPilot — to provide You a proven roadmap and the tools you need to build a company that will take you wherever you want to go.
We want to take all of our experience (good and bad) and help you grow your business into something of significance.
For you, that might be a very small business that nets you 5k a month, runs like clockwork and gives you the freedom to live life on your own terms. Or, it might be an organization of-size that makes you a millionaire many times over. An organization that has a management structure in place and systems in place that run just as smoothly when you're in your office as when you are dreaming up your next idea on the beach in San Juan or on a mountainside in Colorado.
Something else we aspire too... we are not interested in just selling you software or a step-by-step how to video as much as we are interested in working with you and all of our clients to build better companies.
So many business owners believe that they must destroy their competition to be successful. Believe they must be tight lipped and never share a best practice. They must be ruthless in their business decisions.
I couldn't disagree more.
Look around... look at the size of the market we serve. Virtually every homeowner and business needs us. There is plenty. Opportunity is abundant.
Better yet. If I were to show 100 business owners step by step how to double their business, how to make serious money and how to become the envy of the industry I'll bet only 5 to 10 of them would do what is takes to actually make it happen.
Most are just talkers.
What does that mean to you?
Very few of your competitors even have a chance to truly compete against you and adversely affect your business. And the few that can, never really will because opportunity and work is abundant.
Even in down economies.
The best companies grow regardless of low-ballers, poor economies, great competitors and more government regulation.
Here is what we believe our purpose is.
- To help you grow your business to whatever size you desire.
- To help you become free of your business. You created a business to give you and your family a specific lifestyle. Not to be a slave to it.
- To help you make significantly more money.
- To help you build a company that can be sold (even if you don't want to eventually sell, you need to build this kind of company!).
- To help you take more vacations and free time for yourself and your family.
- To improve the industry — which is a great one. But, imagine what would happen if many of the assumptions on how things should be done were challenged. What if the mavericks of the industry all created companies that were smarter, better managed and took better care of their clients, their employees and their families?
- We want to work with and be part of the lives of the next generation of leaders in this industry.

Why Service AutoPilot?
If our purpose aligns with your needs there might be a win/win relationship in this for both of us.
Industries are incestuous. When you started your business what did you do? Probably looked to see what all of your competitors were doing and did the same. Doesn't all marketing in this industry look the same? Don't we all bill our clients and collect money the same way? Don't we all equip our offices and trucks the same way?
Service AutoPilot isn't the same. Our software doesn't look like everyone else's. It doesn't do the same stuff. Our ideas are different. The way we run our own companies isn't the same. Our strategies are different. Our marketing ideas are different.
We have a lot of experience with service companies in other industries. We have learned a lot and applied those ideas (best practices) to this industry.
Unlike most software companies we help lawn care business owners with marketing and strategy. We are available and want to help you take your business to an entirely new level. Along the way, we want you to create the personal lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of.
Reread Our Purpose.
If it feels like a fit... if you have even the slightest belief we might actually be the real deal, that we might actual understand the industry and have some fresh insight then
... do your due diligence.
Read the 'What is Service AutoPilot' page. Read our Guarantee. If you still have questions call us. If you think we are a fit... try one of our tools. If it's not what we promise... give it back and we will give you back your money. It’s just that simple.
We hope to be part of your future.
Wishing you rapid success,
