Im looking for ways to gain new customers. I am curious what people's thoughts are on acquiring business through internet site such as service magic. I believe you pay a $99 one time fee to register and then pay per lead there after. Has anyone used a service like this and what are others thoughts on using a service like this? Basically is it worth your time and most importantly your money.

Stay away from service magic. They will bug the crap out of you.

I agree!!! they gave me a week of "free" look at types of leads. I saw 1 that would be good IF I got the bid.

Don't want to use them.

There's a big sticky on SM at the top of the page. They still call 3~5 times a week and all I did was inquire about their services. That was 3 years ago. Thank god for call blocking.

I have actually benefited greatly from Service Magic, fyi. Just to give another perspective......specifically on lawn mowing accounts.

We haven't had much luck with service magic. But all strategies are worth a try. Good luck.
