    Getting more business

    Tell me the difference between "guerilla marketing" and regular marketing in this business? Seems to me that there's plenty of vets on here using eddm, Facebook ads and signs.

    First month of being fully operational

    This morning would be a good example of how easy it is to pick up jobs just by getting out there and talking to people. I dropped off another round of eddm to the post office and had nothing scheduled for today. I started hitting businesses, asking for managers and passing out cards. After...

    First month of being fully operational

    Don't expect eddm to be enough to start unless you can make a bomb mailer. Even then, you have to back it up with other forms of advertising. Ive done well with it because I think asymmetricly. Most of these mailers you see are junk. They look like junk mail and get treated as such. Crammed with...

    First month of being fully operational

    You don't need to spend that much on eddm starting out. Just pick a route or 2 of about 600-900 homes and back up the eddm with signs and a little facebook advertising. Concentrate on that one area for your residential jobs to start and walk into businesses for Comercial prospects. As long as...

    First month of being fully operational

    I 100% agree. All the work in the world is there, you just have to take it. I think a lot of these guys are scared to go knock on a door or go ask for a manager.

    Getting more business

    Ditch the adwords, too expensive with not much roi. Make sure your eddm and facebook ads are hitting the same area, combine that with some lawn signs and bandit signs on poles. Those 3 advertising mediums should lock down your target area. Marines like to say that they're first on the beach...

    Getting more business

    Approaching businesses is fun and easy. Just pick the ones that you would like to clean and charge right in with some promo materials. "Please keep me in mind for all your floor care needs". It's really that easy and you'll be surprised how many will book right on the spot.

    I'd like to think so. My gross will go up once I get all these commercial accounts serviced. I'm encouraged by the fact that I'm not having a hard time finding work.

    First month of being fully operational

    Just completed my first month of going at it full time. $6700 gross and the business is growing. I've got commercial accounts from nothing more then word of mouth and walking into businesses. Nice ones too, I have some vet clinics, 2 restaurants, a chain of 5 liquor stores and a chain of 15...

    Citation for dumping water

    Just wait til your neighbor is not home and clog the plumbing vent on their roof. Make sure to clog it below the roof line too. Evil but effective.

    Carpet cleaner reality show?

    I can actually beat that though. During the invasion we took over Hussain Kamels old palace. We peeled the all the gold inlays out of the walls. Had our rucksack stuffed full and carried it around for weeks. We already had the money spent in our heads, Ferrari for me. We finally showed someone...
