Advertising and business idea exchange forum for servicers?

6 posts in this topic

One thing I'd love to see is a place where we can discuss what advertising is working, not working, etc.

 

Ad words, stickers, direct mail, newspapers, standing on a street corner in a monkey suit with a sign... whatever.

 

Let's face it. There just aren't any ad programs tailored to our needs and we often have to learn the hard way. If we can save each other some headaches then maybe we should.

Need appliance parts? Call 877-803-7957 now!

Lately---we've been getting new customers---through angieslist.com

 

A relatively new thing---Angies List---gives local consumers the ability to see a business's rating from other consumers.

 

Since that started---I now give each customer a note before leaving---asking them to take a moment to share their service experience with us on Angies List (at the earliest opportunity to do so).

 

It *does* work :)

I'm not sure what the exact criteria is for accessing these areas are but I do know that type of information can be obtained there just by posting a question.

I think it's actually already there.

 

I do know that I got access when I started answering questions to try and help others fix their problems, and, donating to help keep the site going.

 

As far as I'm concerned my donations are ridiculously cheap cost for the wealth of information I get.

Plus now we have realtime tech support.

Brother Durham nailed it:  we's already all over that like suds on beer in the Bidness Skool forum.   It's a techs-only forum where we share ideas with each other on running our appliance repair bidness.  Have a look around, start a new topic, rack 'em and pack 'em.   Smoking lamp is lit and I'm halfway there my-damn-self.  TGIF!    :beatnik:
