    Chris, thanks for your contribution to the spirit of America!

    The only thing I would add to your list is to ensure each customer feels they're getting good value for their money. We do this by offering good, better, best service packages.

    Salute!

    I removed my rates a few months back and haven't noticed a difference in call volume. Interesting theory though.

    I agree. I've found there are two types of customers: quality and quantity. Truth is, you need both to keep busy, but the aim is to have all quality customers, the one's who care more about a job well-done over the price.

    You're likely posting in the employment area. It cost me $25 per ad when searching for new employees for my carpet cleaning business.

    Post in the services area and make sure you have "carpet cleaning" in your ad.

    Awesome thread! Really glad I came across it, as I am also a business owner of a startup carpet cleaning company and we are constantly looking for ways to improve our lead generation. We will definitely go over the last half of that as we were only usually focused on our website and making it as user friendly as possible however as pointed out SEO is probably very important as well.

    Anyways thanks for the info! I would also appreciate a quick look at our website to see how well-optimized it is in your opinion, Thanks!

    I think points 8 and 10 are really important. If you continually generate good content that has value to the reader then you will rank. It is long term play, it might take a year to rank. If you do some backlink building you can speed up the process.

    Building email list is the most cost effect marketing out there. But it is getting harder and harder to get people to opt-in to an email list because they don't want more emails. You have to give them something valuable in exchange for their email. It used to be a well-written guide would work but today it has to be something exceptional that people really want before they will opt-in.

    Once you have your list built it's important that you don't just blast them with promotions. Again send valuable content and scatter in a promotion every once in a while.

    Only in select areas and select categories do they charge. It's the cats and locations that see the most spam. Here is free to post in household services, but not free to post about a job opening in the company.

    Maybe I'll give that a trial run with a free Craigslist ad. I'll also try, "...or we'll break your legs!".

    Good one. Also, you need to go with offline advertising and promotion along with the online. Both should go hand in hand.
