The average new kitchen costs in the rangeof $20,000 to install, not including appliances. Not everyone canafford this expensive home improvement; however, it only costs a fewthousand dollars to update a kitchen’s look with new cabinet doors andhardware.
Starting this business does not require a great deal ofexpertise or capital, and you can generally be completely ready to rollfor under a $5,000 investment. It talked to one very crafty gentlemanin this business. His solution to building a client base fast was tohold a contest, which he advertised, in his local paper.
The contestwas for a free kitchen update. You sent in pictures of your existingugly kitchen and why you thought it needed an updated look. In thefirst two weeks, he had more than 100 entries for the contest, completewith name, address, and telephone numbers. Not only did he choose awinner and install the kitchen update for free, more importantly he hada base of more than 100 potential customers that he could now marketto, as he knew that they were in the market for his type of service.
