    I know some may not want to but those who dont mind, whats your best roi to date?

    Our list

    1. Angie's List
    2. Yelp
    3. Word of mouth

    would love to hear from those possibly having success with

    Home advisor
    Google ad words
    SEO (organic search results)
    EDDM
    real estate newsletters etc
    any other type of mailings

    Some avenues work better in some markets than others I understand. Mostly want to hear from those charging higher end pricing not so much the $99 whole house guys (no offense)

    i do newspaper inserts and have good luck.

    the distribution rates are second to none, but, of course, not everyone gets the paper. but i figure enough people get it, that its worth it.

    For me it goes

    1. word of mouth
    2. Mouth of word
    3. Of word mouth

    Word of mouth is best. But it needs to be from customers, contractors, realtors, installers etc. anyone that will talk about you to their customers.

    All my business is referral and my free Yelp listing.

    I do need to get a website up though.

    So my point is your best advertising is to go out and make those connections.

    One of my guys is extremely clever. He paid for a car wash membership at a VERY busy gas station on the corner of a major artery here in town. Every morning his team is out there washing and detailing the van... and everyone sitting in traffic gets his number off the side of it in the process, since they're stuck at a red light and have nothing better to do. The phone starts ringing before the boys have even finished drying the van. He hasn't paid for a single day of advertising beyond that.

    Sending out a full page flyer in our local community paper that goes to every mailing address in my service area ( 15 k circ) . Cost is .10 cents printed and delivered. Works great for me.
    Been doing this for 18 plus yrs.
