Part 1: How to maximise an income and run a tiling business

This course follows on from our 4 day fast track tiling course and makes the difference between business success and failure. Just because you may be great at sticking tiles on doesn’t mean that you are going to make big money. There are plenty of tradesmen who do not maximise their income. This is because they don’t know how to properly advertise, build a customer base and more importantly know how to sell their tiling services effectively.

Not only is our professional tiling training taught to the highest level possible, this problem solving,  natural stone and business course is absolutely essential and is designed to make you ready to work. We will teach you how to succeed and make a lot of money from tiling. In addition, you will receive all of the necessary information you need to go self-employed.

If you are thinking of starting a tiling business, then you need to know the business rules for success.
