    It'll sound right when you land 2-3 jobs a
    a day. Until then , you are the guy with $950 less in his pocket. Hopefully, this is month to month scenario. Let's hope for beginners "miracle" to happen.......... Good luck

    So you don't think this is likely to happen? Give me your opinion instead of hope. Thanks

    My opinion is that you should've put your trust in TMF before your executive decision to partner with anyone and put your savings in danger. Annual spending of national CC companies is between 60K up to 200 K. We're talking 50-60 years of being on the market and delivering to different industries( being pro active) which is enormous help. Familiarity sells. If you spent 1500-2500 on Clear Channel a month, you would get about the same response you'll get from PPC presence. God, I hope I'm all wrong. The way you present it to us, it seems like you're laughing at us. I would take big troll rather than honest, hard working man putting his money in thin air. Sorry for being dramatic, but there is no way that you keep any marketing company in the check.
    IF THEY CAN'T deliver, find a loophole in contract and get out of the contract. Seriously.........

    Are you in Los Angeles? I couldn't tell from your site but the phone number made me think that. If so, your clicks will likely be more expensive than less populated areas.

    Either way, your budget should bring in calls but calls don't always turn into jobs. When you do land jobs, strive for the five star review.

    No sir. Thats a fake phone number on the website (its just a mock-up design). Can you please be a little bit more specific? How many jobs a day do you think that would convert too? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Impossible for anyone to answer that question Greg, if they know what they're doing you will get calls, your job to close those leads. I just think it's an expensive way to start advertising a company.

    Many times these outfits own all the properties - hopefully this is not the case (although at that price I would assume so as well as the weird URL). Normally if you decide you don't want to work with them any more they take everything down or just send the work elsewhere. I always say - make sure you own all your assets!
    They should be using a tracking ph # so you can see if PPC is working. Also a separate landing page to track as well.
    Your social icons don't go to your pages (if you have them - and you should).
    certifiedsteam .com is parked at godaddy - I hope you own it - if so - get a website built.

    Anybody would want work for you, or with you. With so many tools at hand, you've got to be busy. I like 2-3 jobs a day, 7 days a week when daylight permits( mostly summer months.
    If I had your Power house behind me, I would have to be on Energy drinks working 4-6 jobs daily. I've done it, but now I like my work days to be in vacation mode. See, I have that problem, like most of us do and that is , looking for extra curriculum even on days when I should stay put. So I'm learning, how to take it easy and try to have more relaxed view on life and work in general.
    Good luck with everything.

    So, you made an impulsive decision and now you want us to tell you what we think of your impulsive business decision.

    My advice to you and everyone else who uses TMF for advice is to ask for the advice before making a business decision if you really want us to help you. You have committed to a decision via a contract that you are hooked for, good or bad, the next six months.

    My second piece of advice is to make business decisions after doing due diligence to determine if it is a good fit for your business. You do have a marketing plan? Please tell me you have a marketing plan! That means it is written down somewhere where it is staring you in the face and keeping you from falling victim to slick talking sales people who will promise you the moon and deliver nothing.

    Your marketing plan should be part of your business plan. IF you don't have either, I would suggest that you get busy before you make any other business decisions and put them together and write them down. Only then can you make informed decisions based on your business and not our opinions on what has worked for us.

    He said "my life is on the line"...

    I personally have signed contracts with advertising companies (and regretted all of them) but never for the amount you are talking about.

    $1300 a month!!! Holy crap man how did they convince you to do that? You need to get out of that asap. Without any reviews it's going to be hard to convert customers.

    Do more research in the future before making life changing decisions with huge consequences. Just my opinion.

    Thanks, I do have more work than I can currently handle and I am working 7 days a week right now, usually around 12 hours a day.

    Once I figured out that lead generating is pretty easy as long as you are constantly looking for opportunities, everything clicked.

    My biggest issue I have right now is scaling, I'm pretty lost in that regard and I'm having a hard time attempting to duplicate what I already have. I'm working on systems right now and maximizing profit in my one van before I add the second one.
