    Posted: 01/May/2005 at 12:14am

I tried marketing my website on the internet, some of it works ,most of it doesn't. a COMPANY(which i can't tell you there name) told me i would get an extra 30 appointments a month if i signed up, so i did...i got one call if i was lucky a month from that, i lost money on that.....

Then i was using a different company online and it worked alot better but my listing droped after the frist month.. i was getting 1 call or email a day, which isn't bad i guess

Does anybody know of a really good way to advertise online???

You have to make sure that your web master keeps you on the top ten hits. It's hard to keep up with that but the right man would know the way.

IMHO internet is not a good way to advertise CCing, put your money into other forms of marketing.

Take care,

Lisa

Most who are looking for this service are women, and women are far more likely to either ask a friend or relative for a referral or go to the Yellow Pages or the Coupon Mailers if their friends have not found anyone good. Women are not plugged in to the internet for service professionals.

better to spend the money for a client based marketing type referral program.

Take care,

Lisa

If you place your web address in all your advertising and your YP ad, people can go there and get a more in depth view of your business and the services that you offer. Makes for an easier sell.

I wouldn't expect local people to find you on a search engine, but it would help more if they did.

you know what worked better on the local search engines, my maid service, people seem to use internet more for the house and office cleaning, but thats a foot in the door for carpet cleaning, i always try to push the carpet cleaning service.

adwa,

I have to disagree with you.  Of all the customers calling me, I'd say that 70% of them are women.  The only marketing I do is through the search engines.  Go to yahoo and type in phoenix carpet cleaner, phoenix carpet cleaning, or any of the other cities close to me here in phoenix,AZ.  you will see that Im listed in the top six1, this gets me tons of phone calls from non price shopping customers.  They get to see my unique selling position and they are sold before they even pick up the phone.  I just close the appointment by not being a dumb@ss.  Internet marketing when done right pays big!!!

The fact that the internet advertising works and that women are the ones that are mostly calling me from it. I agree with the two things mentioned in your last post.
