I'm assuming everyone is stupid busy and that is why the forum is still so dead. Not having David G posting up also takes the wind out of the sails. I have never seen things as crazy as they are this year. Between postcards and a PPC campaign I'm getting 3-5 calls per day. I started getting calls and selling jobs on November 1st and this never happened in the past.

Here is a shot of the home I did to start the day today. This came from Homeadvisor.com. I sealed the deal via email late at night before I even talked to the guy. This was a nice little $3400 job.

The bows and wreaths I use beat my competition easily.

How many of those calls are actually decent homes that turn into estimates for at least $1000 or more and are not will you hang my lights or other crap calls.

Im scheduling 15-18 estimates in a day and who cares if they are over $1,000 or not? Im weeding out the tire kickers from the get go and have had very very few "will you hang my lights."

Sold 3 today and scheduled many more estimates for next week. Really need to just stop taking appointments, if I sale most of these I wont be able to keep up at all.

I've only had three hang my lights calls. I'm at about $36K and with takes down should be past the 40K mark. Not sure if I'll hit my 60K goal but I'm trying. With lots of people on vacation this week should get a lot of traffic.

I just did my HD inspection for one regular house and one 10K Griswold house and was surprised to see only one LL that I had to trouble shoot. I dread the inspection and really put it off longer then I should have.
