Top 5 BPCA member benefits for getting more customers

Business practice | PPC91 May 2018

There are lots of reasons for joining a trade association but ultimately people choose BPCA because we make your business more profitable. These are our top five member benefits that help you attract (and retain) new clients.

Membership opens doors

1. Membership opens doors

Being a BPCA member means that you’ll have access to more significant clients. Many contracts and tenders require a contractor with BPCA membership.

2. Find a Pest Controller tool

BPCA full Servicing members get listed on our Find a Pest Controller tool. The tool gives out thousands of referrals every year, giving you access to domestic and commercial clients that might not have otherwise found you.

Discounted cepa certified

3. Free and discounted accreditations

All Servicing members get free CHAS accreditation and discounted CEPA Certification (plus the support you need to get it). Once you’ve got a BPCA, CHAS and CEPA Certified® logo on the back of your van you’ll be prepared for almost any client!

Access to the contract sharing network

4. Contract Sharing Network

BPCA members often rely on other members to deliver national and regional contracts.

BPCA’s Contract Sharing Network (CSN) allows members to work together through a trusted framework that follows an agreed Code of Conduct. Subcontract out large contracts, or pick up work from other members as a contractor.

Access to the PrintShop

5. PrintShop

The online PrintShop allows members to personalise quality design templates for informational, marketing and promotional purposes.

A favourite PrintShop template is the door-to-door postcard. It’s a great way of getting new leads with little effort. Upload company details, team photo and press print. Now you’ll have something to nip into letterboxes when out and about.
