Here is what I am working on so far. I adjusted my pricing because my old pricing was killing me. 1600sqft for $99 was my first mailer and it was busting my balls. So, I scaled it back a bit. I am going to lose the Rotovac picture and replace it with something else. But I just wanted to post this and get some feedback on what changes I could make to increase my chances of getting businsess. I am not a marketing guy in any sense. I just do the best I can with the limited knowledge I have. Thanks for all the help from the TMF members.

Why not have a picture of you doing the work?

Also consider more than image based stuff... Do some selling. Why should I call you? What are you doing that's different than the guy on the sign for $50 for 3 rooms... Or $99 for the whole house??

Working on revisions now. Not doing $99 whole house. Although my last mailer worked well, it jsut was too much and I ma starting to realize that my time is actually worth something.

the 360i takes forever to clean with using a porty! hope your using a truckmount! wouldn't it be faster to use a 175 then wand it?
I hung up my powerwand and now use a Trex. IT is much faster and my shoulders don't hurt at the end of the day. I don't have my TM installed yet but on will be putting it in the last week of august.

The T-Rex is an awesome looking machine. Maybe take a pic of yourself wiping a clean streak in a traffic lane with it. That would be a winner.

Also, if you don't mind sharing, how are you distributing these door hangers?

Thanks

raise the prices for Scotchgard by 30% on your website, makes it look more valuable. Then change your coupon to 30% off Scotchgard. When a company advertises 10% off it does nothing for me. Just my opinion.


10% off kills it for me on duct cleaning, but everything else I agree. But the duct cleaning avg ticket is $250+

If I do door hangers, I will just be out there hoofing it myself. Maybe hire someone off craigslist that wants some part time work.

I cannot believe you were cleaning 1600 sqft of carpet $99. I bet you were crazy crazy busy.
I charge $99 for 450 sqft with a special.

Idk your flyer looks to busy for me. I look at it and i have no interest in continuing to read it. I'm no marketing master though.

You did an EDD previously?

How did it go? How many did you ship?

Thanks
I got 24 customers off of 4,808 EDDM fliers. I am happy with that results and learned a lot. The next round will be better I hope. Calls are still coming in from the first round.
