Independence Day: A celebration of hard work and big dreams

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness: the principles upon which this country was founded are the very same ones that drive Knowify today.

Financing your contracting business in good times and bad

These are unprecedented times for business owners. While we all hope that the pandemic is short-lived and that things bounce back quickly, everyone is scrambling to figure out how to stay afloat right now.

@JustaConstructionGuy making the most of Instagram

As the owner of a contracting business, you already know that managing your jobsite activities, administrative tasks, and pipeline of new jobs is a significant challenge. We at Knowify stress that doing a great job at the first two – and really showing off your professionalism – can help with the third, since happy clients can often help drive new business through referrals. But there are many other things contractors can do to source leads, and one critically overlooked sales tool in our industry (don’t cringe!) is social media.

Is it a soft, wishy-washy claim that you’ll feel more organized and ‘productive’, but mostly business will roll on as usual? Or does it mean a significant change in your business processes in a way that will lead to efficiency, growth, and (hopefully) business transformation? Here’s what the data have to say:

Companies take on 20% more jobs by the end of their first year

Estimates and Invoices, POs and Bills: How a Little Extra Effort Can Pay Off

The office side of the business is frequently unloved in construction. We like to joke that nobody ever got into construction so they could sit at a desk working on spreadsheets all day. Because construction guys would much rather be in the field, they often develop little workarounds to make the office side of things faster – but as with any workaround, they give up something in the process.
