    The cost isn't that bad, and I need the systems and marketing materials.
    Any feedback?

    I’d talk with Rob Lyon about his experience. He was with them when he owned his business in PA. I can’t remember his experience but he sold the business so I think he could you know how it worked out for him. He’s consulting in the industry now.

    If you are in California you will need a contractor's license.

    I've talked to both people that love it and those that hated it.

    If you can afford it, I think it would be worth trying.

    I had dinner with an owner that felt he was ripped off. Didn't have one good thing to say. However I have several acquaintances that swear by them and have been members from the beginning.

    I think it has more to do with where you are now and what your goals are. Will you implement what you buy, and what is the competition currently doing.

    A few thousand down, about $600 per month for me.

    I just need the marketing materials. It's as simple as that.

    Go ask on Jeremy Reets board and see what is said there. You have a broad mix of restorers there to pull from.

    Didn't realize he had a board, and can't find it. I found his Facebook pages.

    I'm not on it but Dan has signed into it. I believe its Restorers Built Tough.
    Jeremy and his team are great people. Some people there I don't care for but you get that with Facebook.

    Getting cold feet on the More Floods thing. I don't believe I want to commit to a 3 year deal. Contacted a local design company to get some marketing materials of my own.

    I’d still check With Rob Lyon. I believe he has developed marketing materials already they you can purchase and customize for your business. I’m not sure what he offers, but worth taking a look into.

    Exactly. The time I looked into it I didn’t like the 3 year commit... about 25k-30k investment

    But if you have the time and are creative then I’d go for it. If you don’t get what you want, then next year signup with MoreFloods.
    Doing it yourself is easy but it takes time and dedication. That’s the main reason why most people choose someone else to do it for them.

    Stock images can be bought and you can take high rez shots of your vehicles, crews, equipment and job sites.

    I would design a years’ worth at a time. List 12 ideas then compose a couple of lines of text for the 12 pieces. Find 12 images you want to use and give this to your designer. The following year get new images, use the same text.

    However that isn’t going to compete with what you would get with MoreFloods. They have been at it a while and have many marketing angles figured out. So don’t just rely on your cards to bring in work.

    Who are your targets? What is the best way to reach them? What frequency of contact are you planning? Budget? Personal contact? Electronic? SEO? Social Media? Snail mail? Radio? TV? Newspaper (print or electronic)? Lots of great ways to blow money!
