This video will guide you through building a sales budget - the first step in building an operating budget for your landscape company.
The goals of the sales budget are simple:
- To realistically forecast revenue (sales) for the coming year
- To set profitable sales goals for your company
When you're first creating your sales budget, don't worry too much about the profitable part, until you're finished. Your sales forecasts will start out as an 'educated guess', but by the time you're finished the rest of your budget, you'll know exactly what your sales need to be in order to set a plan for a profitable year.
