AmazonLocal East Valley: Today's Local Daily Deal

Running my Living Social ad today. its 8:55 A.M. and so far I have sold 9 of them even though the screen says I've sold 11.

My deal is $199 for 1000 sf of tile and grout or $149 for 600 sf of tile and grout.

So far 6 $199 deals to 3 $149 deals.

Had a customer call in to see if travertine counted in the deal and completely blew the call. Doh!!!!!!

Oh well I will call her back in a little bit and try and fix the call.

Yep. The main difference is that Living social dosnt take extra fee's for credit card processing. And they also send you one check 15 business days after your ad closes. Groupon breaks it into 3 payments 30, 60 and 90 days after your ad closes.

Ok we sold 23 of them today. Still two days left. Got two calls about Saltillo that I refered out and two calls about Natural Stone cleaning. One will turn into about a $600 job for 550 sf of tile.
16 of the 1000 sf jobs and 7 of the 600 sf jobs. which will pay me $2114 so far
1 job is 1500 sf. so it is the LS deal plus $250 for overage. and gave him a deal on sealing for another $187 so the job will pay me $437 on the day of the job.
Another one is 1100 sf So it is an additional $50 for the other 100 sf
Another 1000 sf job is adding sealing which will be another $250
only about 6 of them have scheduled so far. So 3 out of the 6 have upsold over the phone.
So far every job that scheduled has been in a really nice neighborhood.
I think my wife sold a carpet job from it also.

Thanks quite the learning curve. 1st call was at 8:02 am. I didnt even have time to make coffee. She wanted to know if it the deal could count with Travertine. Told her no and didnt have anything else. Just drew a blank. Made me think and gave a better answer to the next person.

Had a call today. Lady wants 1600 sf clean and seal. sd she would just go through us if we gave her the same deal. told her not a problem. All in all it will be a $700 job.

Another observation. So far every house I have cleaned has been very nice. I have 3 more of the LS jobs scheduled this week. and everyone of them is in a very nice neighborhood.
All areas that I want to be doing more cleaning in.

Update on my LS ad:

I ran my Tile and grout cleaning Living Social ad with $149 for up to 600 and $199 for up to 1000 sf. I sold 44 jobs.

I got a check from LS for $4250.

10 for the 600 sf deal

34 for the 1000 sf.

So far I have done about 20 of the jobs.

Out of those only 1 has been a real Pigsty and that one took advantage of the $180 upsell of sealant and were super nice people just really messy.

10 of them have been in upper class neighborhoods.
7 have been in upper middle class neighborhoods.
And only 3 of them have been middle class.

These have been some of the easiest jobs I have ever done. The pigsty I had to reschedule because they wernt even close t ready the 1st time. The second time I didnt have to move a single

But other then that one house they have been more ready for the work then my regular tile jobs. I have never been offered more cokes and sodas in all my jobs. It is like these people understand what a great deal they are getting and would like to accommodate me more because of it.

12 of the 20 jobs have had there grout sealed 3 were the 600 sf jobs for $105 and 9 have been the 1000 sf deal for $180

I also picked up 7 other jobs that called us directly without going through Living social.
3 of those were 600 sf for $149 1 added sealant for another $105. 4 were for 1000 sf for $199 3 of those added sealant for $180.

So over all I recieved my check for $4250 last week.
Had $1935 in upsells to the 20 jobs I have done so far.
And got an additional 7 jobs for $1888.
For $8073 in gross revenue generated by the living social ad so far.
