According to this model, the business owner is the company’s sole technician and conducts all on-site work. For example, Mr. X runs an air duct cleaning service business but chooses to do the on-site project. Unsurprisingly, he enjoys a much longer margin of profit, including the technician cost. Through confrontational use of advertising and marketing materials, hard work, and quality service resulting in repeat business and commitment, he becomes successful beyond his target.
In this model, the business owner hires one or more technicians for his company. But, on-site projects, both owner and employee conduct the job. For example, Mr. M, the owner of a dryer vent and air duct cleaning company, hires a technician for doing on-site works. He supervises his technician during his work each day.
And, at this model, we would see that the business owner is only playing the role of investor and manager. And the hired technicians are conducting all the necessary works on-site projects. For example, take Mr. M, who gradually realized that usually, on any given day, the workflow tends to be one air duct and two dryer vents cleaning. It takes almost two hours for cleaning air ducts and 30-45 minutes for each dryer vent. He can raise the number of per day jobs by employing more technicians. So, he chooses to hire more efficient technicians and supervise and gives effort into guiding them.
However, no matter which model you prefer, you may earn up to $15,000 every month.
