Door to door may work for cheap quick business but its hard to not come across as a hack.
For me, it really wasn't a "growth" strategy.Door to door may work for cheap quick business but its hard to not come across as a hack.
My suggestion is to market to the communities that you cant get into.
Country Clubs, gated communities, HOA managed communities where door to door solicitation is prohibited.
In my city there are a couple of monthly marketing magazines that only go out to the highest value homes and the highest income demographic.
The ads are expensive, $1500 - $2500 per month BUT the return on investment is worth it.
Not in the short term.
I may have only broken even on ad spend some months. (The ad only generated enough business to pay for itself) but I got into the homes of the customer base I wanted.
Now 5 years later I live off a steady stream of mid to high end referrals and I stopped all marketing.
That's a great strategy. Find a void and fill it.I appreciate the feedback. I ran my carpet cleaning business part time for 25 years, and am now revamping the business model for full time. I have invested heavily in equipment, presentation, education, and a very quality minded model. I do not see others around me operating in this niche. We are able to pay our bills now with less than a full schedule. I know there are more than enough quality minded clientel around me to fill my schedule. Have been trying to figure out how to find these clients quicker. Sounds like I need to be willing to spend more marketing dollars than I have so far.
I was collecting for a piece of legislation we were helping get through.She musta genuinely liked you........cant think of anything less enticing for a chic than selling rug scrubbing door to door.
I make regular salsa that's awesome. Still learning sweet salsa but this one came out pretty good. Added strawberries. A good taco needs a good tortilla. I only use our local guy. He's gone nationwide now but Carlos goes to my health club.That salsa sounds good. My wife makes an amazing mango Salsa. Not only will it put hair on your chest it’ll put some on yer head!
