 Small ads that look like articals in the local papers work the best for us.

The kind that talk about your company in the 3td person.

Tried radio once ,was not the best .Lots of $$$$ for small return.

Do you ever get good customers from the local paper???I find that it's all the cheapies...radio(talk radio) you get old people......Yellowpages make the phones ring, but you spend a lot of time answering questions, and just quoting...darn people always looking to price compare...

what makes you say wow...that was worth it

  hey steamer i think maybe it depends on the population of the area you are serving. Being from a community of about 30 000 I did not find yellow pages did a thing for me. Especially seeing they put the wrong phone # in the ad. But whatever the ad was free & I didn't notice any business loss. 
   Lately I have been going hard on radio advertising & business has tripled from every other year. This is the way to go for me ,as well as doing the best possible job I can, because in a community this size everyone is gonna hear about it---good or bad!
    O ya local paper = one time waist of money  IMHO

We leave scratch pads.  They have all our services in ligh print on the back ground and our name accross the top.  We used to use magnets some are still around after 15 years.  but the magnet crase on the fridge has gone by thewayside I think I could be wrong.  I was wrong  once but it wasn't my fault.

i mail all my existing costumers thanksgiving & x-mas cards every year it cost about 300-400 dollars but i get about 40% return costumers. then the next year  for the ones that didnt call i put a coupon in with the cards $10.00 off any service we offer. over$ 110.00 & that seems to get them to call they seem to really like that then tell there freinds that they got a card from there carpet cleaner & they call too.  i send cards to costumers even if they havent booked for 4or5 years they eventually call & book.  but it gets your name out there at the same time.

   What kind of success ratio do you get telemarketing & do you do it yourself or hire someone to do it? Does this not make your business look sleazy? Just a question!

Telemarketing

Is it for you or not?

You hear many people who use words like I hate those people and despise those who continuously disrupt my privacy by calling me.  Well let me tell you it's the fastest and economical way to get instant business and very fast growth.

I have customers who have taken 3 to 4 years to get their volume to $1000.00 per year. I also have telemarketing customers who reach the same volume in 30 Days.  Yes it works if you have the right personality and can control Telemarketing people.

Now my personal view is that I am very short or sometimes humorous with telemarketers. But the Good Ones I listen too and Learn, Learn, Learn. Sometimes these sales pitch can be invaluable to you.
