I started developing 3D Shed Builder in August of 2014 because I saw a major need in the portable shed industry.
Having worked in the portable shed industry for 6 years, 3 of those years managing a manufacturing facility, I saw first hand that the lifeblood of the shed business is selling sheds! Pretty obvious right? When sales are down the manufacturing shop does not have enough work and has to lay employees off. Likewise when sales are up the shop has so much work they need to hire more employees to meet deadlines. This is a major problem that stems from unpredictable sales.
I had to think, “What if the shed manufacture had a system to give their dealers to help them track leads and close sales while being able to generate more leads and sales on demand?”
The model used by 90% of portable shed companies is to pay a commission on building sales to privately owned and operated dealers. This is a great model, but the problem was the shed company provided little to zero sales tools to the dealers.
3D Shed Builder’s goal is to solve those 2 main problems.
Problem #1. Control lead and sales volume by generating leads and sales on demand via the lead capture aspect of the 3D Shed Builder.
Problem #2. Provide an incredible tool to the dealers to manage their leads and follow up better to close more sales.
We are proud to be working with some of the biggest shed companies in the United States with plans to move into Canada in the coming years!
