How to Reach Revenue Goals with 53% Less Work


Achieving your business’s revenue goals requires more work than simply setting and forgetting a target. It requires a deep understanding of the metrics that shape your profitability.

To reach your revenue goals, you’ll need a strategy to maximize these key metrics. In this blog post, we’ll go over what metrics impact your revenue goals and show you how to maximize these benchmarks.

Let’s dive in and discover how contractors can achieve high revenue goals by working smarter, not harder. 

Maximize Efficiency to Reach Revenue Goals 

To achieve your business's revenue goals, you need to understand the key metrics that impact your profits. You need to identify the metrics that will directly contribute to your revenue generation and help you reach your sales goal. 

Looking at the Right Metrics

So, what metrics impact your goal? And how can you maximize your efforts? Let’s take a closer look at some metrics through an example.  

For our example, let’s say you want to hit $10 million in annual revenue. This is a lofty but achievable goal for a roofing company. However, it will require a lot of hard work.

What Is the Average Job Size for Roofers? 

To hit $10 million in annual revenue, you need to know your average job size (AJS). From there, you can calculate how many jobs you’ll have to complete during the busy season.

According to Forbes, the average job size for roofers was $11,500 in 2023. We’ll use this average for our revenue outline plan today, but keep in mind your business’s AJS may differ from this average.

To reach your $10 million revenue goal with an AJS of $11,500, you’ll need to complete an average of 870 jobs per year. However, the roofing season typically doesn’t last 12 months.

Instead, you realistically have about six active months of selling, depending on where you operate. That means you’ll need to close 140 average jobs per month to hit your goal.

Understanding the Impact of Your Close Rate 

Your AJS isn’t the only metric that impacts your revenue goals. Close rates also play a huge role. The typical industry-standard close rate is around 25%. 

Based on an average 25% close rate, you’ll need to complete 560 estimates per month to reach your goal of closing 140 jobs monthly. 

Additionally, based on an industry average booking rate of 50%, you’ll need to generate 1,120 leads monthly to reach your goal of 560 estimates per month. This isn’t impossible for a hardworking contractor like yourself, but it is a lot of work.
