Anyone recommend and use any of them..? I was thinking of trying home advisor....? Or is there a better one...?
You might give them a try. The nice thing about HomeAdvisor is you need to be able to pass a background check - the don't allow felonies, hard prison time, violent misdemeanors or recent bankruptcy.

So that weeds out like 99.9% of carpet cleaners out there...

I've been talking to HomeAdvisor- I haven't made a decision, yet. I read some stuff on here, both pro and con. Anyone else have any input?
When I operated out of Fla (Daytona Beach area) they were Worthless to me.Most those types seem to work best out West in Heavily populated areas.

I've looked into Home Adviser. I have a hard time paying for leads that I can't confirm are real.
I'd rather offer referrals a great offer to gain a job.
I work with them. Usually if they give you bad leads you can call them and tell about and they will return the money for that lead. At start was hard to start. But now i start to get more and more customers from less leads. All depends on how good you are with the customers on the phone. But hey English is not even my second language :)

We tried them when we first started and again three years later. The problem with home advisor is you can't customize your leads. For example our minimum service at the time we used them was $99... No matter how I told them I wanted 3 or more room cleaning types we received a lot of one room inquires, and all of those were price shoppers... It got to be very annoying... I had better success with Thumbtack, but those are also price shoppers...
