What makes this business successful?

Customers come from Victoria, NSW, and QLD, from small businesses or individuals, and are those looking for compliance consulting, residential structural design, Land Capability Assessments, and soil testing. Many customers are repeat customers, architects, and builders, and some are once-off clients such as owner builders. These customers often come from word of mouth and referrals or those seeking their service. They also service State and Local Government Agencies through tenders.

Marketing and advertising are minimal, customers come via word of mouth, referrals, and tenders. They have a website where customers can research and make contact about their services and social media platform Facebook. They have not needed to advertise the business as they are increasingly busy without it.
