A Collection of Resources Related To Starting A Welding Business
In this post, you will find an abundance of resources that will give you a complete overview of what it takes to start a welding business and provide insights about what you can expect from getting into this type of business. Before you get to the resources, here are a few brief points to consider.
A welding business can be profitable and busy if you’re providing quality work at a competitive price and building the right customer base.
You can target machine shops that don’t specialize in welding and offer quality welding for them. They have millwrights that are much more valuable working on a lathe than welding. Plus they probably don’t specialize in welding.
You can offer the same services to related operations like automotive shops, that may have people that can weld but are not skilled enough to offer professional high-quality welds.
Another idea you can implement is to have a mobile setup readily available. It’s as simple as a welder set up on a truck with the tools needed to perform many tasks at the customer’s location and no need to have the customer bring the job to your shop.
You’ll also want to set a minimum fee for any job. E.g. $25 minimum fee. That way you’ll be profitable even for the walk-in 5-minute jobs and keeps the people looking for a freebie away. It’s fine if you want to do a 5-minute job for free that can lead to business in the future but, at least with the minimum fee in place you can charge if you want.
Another important part is you should have the skill and ability to perform almost any welding job so your business builds a reputation as the place to go for welding.
You may be a welder by trade and looking for a way to go out on your own and build a business. You would make a good candidate and you may already be business savvy.
If you’re not business savvy then I would suggest taking a small business course and a marketing course targeted towards small business. You don’t need to get an MBA all you need is to get you familiar with running a small business.
In the resources to follow you’ll find more issues to consider such as how to finance your business, getting registered, getting the proper insurance, startup checklists, and more.
