What’s Your Location’s Potential? Monday Morning Manufactured Housing Marketing Sales Meeting

June 25th, 2018

 Every business ought to periodically look at their performance metrics. 

That reality check could be Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Annually as well as in units of 3, 5, 10 or even 20 years. 

Then every business, person, and operation should ask themselves, ‘what’s the potential for my business or location?

Among the most common mistakes in MHVille is thinking of “the competition” only in terms of other HUD Code or modular housing operations.  While that’s a significant metric, isn’t the broader housing market’s far larger – and thus bigger opportunities – a more important measure? Aren’t more sales lost to other forms of housing, than manufactured homes?  The obvious  and honest answer is sadly, yes.


Limits of Growth?

There are practical or logistical constraints on every operation. A factory, using a hypothetical example, may only be able to produce 14 floors during a 9 hour day. With two full  shifts, could they produce 28 floors? Logistical questions would determine how possible that might be.

A land-lease manufactured home community has specific limitations, based upon how many current or potential home sites it has.

A manufactured home retailer has space limitations too. But unlike a community, there are several ways that a creative retailer can overcome space limits to maximize their potential sales.



Think Win-Win 

Every transaction ought to have mutual victories as its goal.

Some prospective customers reveal early on that they won’t be easily satisfied on price or could be hyper-picky on service. That may be a customer to politely pass on.  

Normal customers know you have to make a profit. Set the correct, candid expectations, and the opportunities for a win-win will follow. With mutual victories, honesty, and good service, referrals are a natural.



Some 75% (+/-) of the manufactured home industry’s websites have design flaws that limit potential sales. That includes some new and fancy looking websites.  If your website is doing the job, click here above to learn more.


What’s Your Potential? Cooked in a Squat

Self-limiting thinking or group-think are regrettably common among many in the industry. It takes a special kind of humility – and courage – to ask, what could my business or location achieve?  

That kind of open, honest questioning and willingness to learn new ideas can leads to far higher results and profits. And to us, that always means profits ethically obtained, with happy customers and thus sustainability. 

Often, it is relatively modest adjustments that are needed to move towards tapping your operations or locations potential.  

But sometimes, a serious shakeup is required.

What’s your potential?
