    Just a thought. Have any of you advertised big dollars?

    Example:

    For the 5 Star, Clean as a whistle package, get all the carpet cleaned (5rooms, hallway), Sofa, Loveseat, Recliner, and kitchen tile for only $499! (Regular $599)

    But wait, there's more!!

    Get a scotch guard upgrade for your living room and hallway FREE!


    Just a thought.

    I've never offered a package price unless I'm already in the house trying to upsell

    But I'd be more tempted to offer a higher price package than a lower one, even the wealthy like a deal whereas the cheap are just cheap

    Matt, you are going to spend 8-10 hrs at someone’s house for 499$? With that amount of work, I’d be at 1800-2500 $.....

    5 rooms, 2hrs max. Sofa, loveseat, recliner: 1.5hr max. Kitchen tile, 30min. That's only 4hrs, maybe 4.5. Where are you getting your numbers?

    Here's an example in another type of service

    https://goo.gl/images/9Qjh14


    And I had to scroll through tons of crappy $85 ads to find this one. I'm sure they targeted this kind of ad out to the areas where the houses are lake houses, 2nd homes, etc. That's where I'd send my ad out, because people that own those homes know the real cost of a good service

    I just figured how all you guys are dogging the 2 for $89 deal

    Why don’t you guys grow a spine and throw out a big number?

    The good customers will see the value and make a call.

    I think Matt is due a little Frat house hazing.

    Not only are the prices low but then he gives away something in each package.
    I bet that dude is one busy sumbitch! Yep, busy workin his way out of the business! :shifty:

    Free stairs? Damn that's hard work. How about an entry mat free instead.

    Who is that guy?

    Matt, Just my opinion so take it for what it's worth. But if you're going to send out an EDDM with $500 prices don't expect a response. You're marketing to coupon clippers. You're going to find yourself painted into a corner and married to some ridiculous jobs working for ridiculous people. If you want bigger ticket customers then you need to start networking more. Go through your current customer list and start asking for referrals of their friends. Start thinking in terms of the life-time value of a customer and the value of their friends.

    I just hate to see you waste your money with a zero ROI (sorry @Lee Stockwell ) on an EDDM campaign. There are different ways to market to different types.

    The $500 was just an example.

    You never answered my question on why you’re spending 8-10hrs on a job like I described
