Here’s What People Are Really Saying About Sprayer Depot

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Oct 24, 2017

As the leading supplier of sprayers, spray equipment and accessories in North America, our reputation means a lot to us. We are committed to providing not only the best products and the best prices in the industry, but also the best service to all of our valued customers. Every single customer we serve is important to us which is why we analyze their feedback and access their overall experience with our company. 

With more than 40 years of experience in the spray equipment industry, we have always placed customer satisfaction as one of our top priorities. Sprayer Depot's mission statement reflects this:

“To WOW people by exceeding expectations."

This mission is simple in that we strive to bring the customer experience to the forefront, by making the shopping experience easy for customers to find and purchase spray equipment, parts and accessories, at the most competitive prices in the industry.

To that end, we offer several ways by which customers can provide feedback on our products, on our team members and on their overall satisfaction with our company. One of the ways we capture and record customer satisfaction scores is through the customer satisfaction surveys that we offer via Bizrate. Bizrate is an unbiased third-party company that compiles and indexes customer feedback to generate an average star rating. Every customer that places an order online receives a customer satisfaction survey and their feedback becomes a part of our total star rating. Sprayer Depot has an overall 4.8 star rating (out of 5 stars), a score that is top rated and which is published and can be viewed on our website and in all our online search ads.  Here is a sample of some of our recent reviews received through Bizrate from actual customers:

In addition to the Bizrate surveys, we also conduct our own customer Net Promoter Score surveys designed to evaluate customer satisfaction from random customers who have placed an order within a 30 day time period. This surveys asks the customer if it's likely that he/she will recommend Sprayer Depot to others on a scale of 0—10 and also provides an opportunity for the customer to give us any additional comments or questions. We are happy to report that our NPS score is consistently well above the industry average with an overwhelming percentage of customers willing to recommend us! 

Besides the customer satisfaction surveys we also are happy to receive feedback from customers on our Facebook page which is visible to the public and provides an open and unfiltered forum for any comments or questions we may receive. 

Few companies can say that they take customer satisfaction as seriously as we do, and even fewer  combine this with an unparalleled dedication to customers and overall commitment to excellence.  Check out our extensive inventory of products online or visit our showroom in Orlando, FL and get to know some of our professional and helpful Customer Technicians—we look forward to continuing to  serve you and exceeding your expectations.

Why We Wear Red Shirts on Fridays

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, May 26, 2017

Every Friday, the Sprayer Depot team wears red shirts in honor of R.E.D. Shirt Friday. R.E.D is an acronym that stands for "Remember Everyone Deployed", and we proudly wear red in tribute to our troops. Many who wear red shirts on Fridays, do it for a specific person: a friend that's deployed oversees or a family member who is stationed away from home. 

Group Shot 1.jpg

As a grassroots movement, R.E.D Shirt Friday has gained widespread popularity across the nation thanks to military families, and organizations like Sprayer Depot that are determined to ensure that our servicemen and women receive acknowledgment and support. 

A Kick-Off to Memorial Day Weekend

We're kicking off Memorial Day weekend with a special R.E.D Shirt Friday morning meeting. In observance of Memorial Day and those who have died while serving in the U.S. military, our office  will be closed on Monday, May 29th and reopen at 8:00 a.m. (ET) on Tuesday, May 30th.

Join Us on R.E.D. Shirt Fridays

Want to be a part of R.E.D Shirt Friday? Just wear a red shirt every Friday and tell your friends why! You can also submit your R.E.D Friday selfie on our Facebook or Instagram page. Use the hashtag #redshirtfriday!

Landscaper's Corner: Insights and Updates for Landscape Professionals

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Mar 24, 2017

Killer Marketing Strategies You Can Implement Now
Contributed by Guest Blogger: Martin McGuane, owner and operator of McGuanes Landscaping and Tree Service, Enfield CT

One of the most important projects we do over the winter islandscapers corner.jpg put together our marketing strategy for the upcoming spring season. As we have mentioned in previous posts, timing in the landscaping business is very important. Many marketing projects require a fair amount of time to prepare. This winter we focused on eight marketing initiatives:

  1. Direct mail
  2. Landscaper network
  3. Our website
  4. Letters to existing customers
  5. Truck signs
  6. Leave behinds
  7. Church bulletins/Community news
  8. Social media

Direct Mail

We have using direct mail advertising as long as we have been in business. When we started, we worked with our local printer to create a nice advertising piece which we hand delivered door-to-door. It wasn't long before we realized that we could reach more households and target our potential customers with a company that specializes in direct mail. This is one of the more expensive approaches we have taken, but it is a good way to reach a large amount of potential customers that meet certain key demographics. We have been able to rely on this approach to bring in a predictable number of new customers year after year.

Landscaper Network

You can’t be in the landscaping business very long without getting to know other people in the industry. Everyone knows one company simply can’t "do it all". Some of us offer hardscaping, some chemical controls, while some businesses are strictly mowing. What we have done over the years is  build relationships with other landscapers so that we can refer clients to each other. We take advantage of the slower winter months to reach out to our network of landscapers to remind them of the services we offer and to see what they can do for us.

Website

Take the time to update your website and keep it current. You may have to update the crew page to include any new hires, and make sure all your services/products/plans are clearly explained. This is the time to consider any enhancements to your site, such as additional photos of your work or “explainer videos.”

Letters to Existing Customers

Send letters to existing customers to promote additional services that thy may need (yet have not signed up for). For example, longtime clients may not be aware of recently added or other services that may help them reach their maintenance goals.

Truck Signs

We have always made sure that all of our trucks have nice looking magnetic signs with large, easy to read print with our name and number on them. Some of our newer trucks have been professionally lettered on all four sides; they are truly rolling billboards.

Leave Behinds

Whenever we apply a treatment to our customer's property we will leave a written explanation of what was we did. This is a leave behind, a great advertising piece. When we spray Dormant Oil we remind our customers that we can also fertilize their trees. When we fertilize the lawn in the fall, our leave behind will offer aeration and slicer seeding. When we winterize the lawn we sell winter tree work. Over the years our leave behinds have generated a tremendous amount of revenue. One our recent projects involved consulting with an outside vendor to redesign all of our leave behinds.

Community Newspapers  & Church Bulletins

We do a small amount of advertising in the local community newspaper and church bulletins. Although we're not reaching large amounts of people, those that we do reach are very loyal.

Social Media

We have only recently started to build our social media presence in the last year or so. While maintaining our presence across our various social media channels like Facebook is a daily activity, we use the winter months to build out our communication plan. We use this down time to think about key communications we would like to send out next season: What services do we want to push next season and when? Do we want to attract a new type of customer? Are there certain channels (such as Instagram) that we should put a greater focus on?

Finding and building relationships is a main goal of our social media strategy. This effort expands beyond reaching potential customers to other landscaping companies and even vendors that we use and recommend, like Sprayer Depot. By creating networking opportunities with others in the landscaping industry we’re positioning ourselves as experts within our industry.

I hope that you found these eight strategies helpful and that you take away a few ideas to help you prepare for the coming season.

Why 2017 Is a Great Year for a New Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Jan 27, 2017

The beginning of a new year is a great time to think about buying KS100P7027-Kings Sprayers.jpgnew spray equipment.  For many, the colder weather means a break in the spray season and using this "quiet time" to take inventory, evaluate equipment needs, and research new spray equipment options will pay off in the long run.

2016 Was a Record Year For Sprayer Sales

At Sprayer Depot, 2016 was a record year for sprayer sales, and we're gearing up for the new year by having plenty of Kings Sprayers Quickship™ sprayers in stock and ready to ship. Just order any of these thirteen sprayer models by 12:00 p.m. (ET), and they'll ship the very SAME day.

Take a look at this list of our five most popular sprayers of 2016. To see our complete sprayer product line, click here. Remember we can also custom-build a sprayer to meet your exact needs (it's easier and less expensive than you think). Read more about custom-built sprayers in this previous blog post.

Most Popular Sprayers of 2016

  1. The Kings Sprayers 100 Gallon Skid Sprayer tops the list as our most popular sprayer of 2016.  This versatile sprayer is great for tree-spraying and can be used in truck beds, utility vehicles, boats and trailers. It's one of our best-sellers and is part of the Kings Sprayers QuickShip™ program.
  2. The second most popular sprayer in 2016 was the Kings Sprayers 50 Gallon 3-Point Hitch Sprayer. This sprayer is great for hitching to a tractor in order to spray large areas like golf courses, athletic fields, pastures and lawns. An added bonus is that it's part of the QuickShip™ program.
  3. The third most popular sprayer in 2016 was the Kings Sprayers 4 Wheel Sprayer, Model # K4C100P7027. This easy-to-maneuver sprayer is great for use in tight areas due to a pivoting front axle and T-handle. It's perfect for greenhouse, nursery or orchard use. Plus, it's part of the QuickShip™ program so it ships the same day if it's ordered by 12:00 p.m (ET) 
  4. The Kings Sprayers 50 Gallon Skid Sprayer was our fourth most popular sprayer last year. One of our best-selling sprayers of all time, this QuickShip™ skid sprayer is ideal in truck beds, utility vehicles, boats and trailers. It's also popular for spraying trees. 
  5. The Kings 100 Gallon 2-Wheel Sprayer came in fifth place on our list. Great for tree, shrub and turf spraying, this 2-wheel QuickShip™ sprayer can be pulled with a utility vehicle or compact trailer and is ideal for lawns, pastures, golf courses and athletic fields.
