Is that something that might be worth looking into?
They take 20% . 20% would be a lot to give up for cleaning residential.
what is your current customer acquisition cost?
20% is about what you might spend anyways to reach new customers.
It looks -at a quick glance- better than some of them Groupon ripoffs.
10% to Property Concierge, Property Managers and Interior Decorators for cleaning referrals. I give 20% to one Interior Decorator who specializes in new construction but it's for sealing new grout and counter tops...shower enclosures. I bid that work at a much higher hourly rate.
If you try it I would be interested in knowing how it worked and what were the customers like compared to other Customers you get through other methods that cost you that amount.
Yes but you would be marketing your company. Not Amazon.
When you get tired of getting fooked by them you walk away and they market the next slob.
You'd be ahead spenting the same monies building your brand.
Like Groupon, price shoppers are going to be hard to convert in to full price clients.
Ohh I got this info from the ServiceMonster video last week!
I watched that one.
Just going to keep doing it my way until someone here tells me something that works better.
I also boost posts to certain zip codes on Facebook. Not doing sales or specials though. Just building a brand presence.
I don't know... Yes it goes through Amazon but I think you'll set your price and your name is being used. And of course after the initial meet-greet-clean, you will be leaving your card your marketing material/reminders cookie baking turkey stuffing recipe or whatever stupid thing you do.
To me amazon has a better name feel than Groupon, that was always about one thing: cheap cheap cheap deal deal deal. Amazon doesn't have that "always the cheapest" feel.
I shop there because they are usually cheaper and with Prime are fast. Just 3 clicks too.
I have an account zero work. Wait a lady found me on yelps then purchased the discount on amazon for the savings.
I maybe charging to much for my area.
I may be old and irritable, but I will not use any newfangled advertising medium that takes a percentage or promotes low pricing.
I can go broke insulting Taco all day without giving my services away.
Well, I figured I'd test the Amazon waters. I signed up today, so I'll fill you in on all the dirty gossip of how big these jobs are and what kind of jobs they turn out to be. If I end up losing money on them, I'll just sign off and send Amazon a picture of my middle finger in the air. That's how I left my job as a car salesman before I started cleaning carpet.
Up to this point how has it worked out, so far? Any jobs from it yet??
No jobs yet. I just finished getting through the red tape
