    Had a lady text in last night wanting an estimate for herself and four neighbors. I know some of you guys think this is a bunch of hype, but it's WORKING. People want info on the go, at least in my area they do.

    Since I invoice with PayPal, I get them to text me their email address and I bill them for the work. Never see them, work gets done, they pay the bill. It's all good tater.

    If I wanted to create a text code for advertising, how would I go about doing so?

    Our you just using the M-card package or do you have one of the bigger set ups for this. Great idea by the way.

    I started out with the Mcard for a few months and then stepped up to the Iconnect plan. I have about 140 people opted in to my network. I send out one message a week. Right now, I'm promoting aeration. I attach my aeration youtube video that they can watch right there on their mobile phone. In about a week, I'm going to start promoting leaf cleanups. I'm working on a short video for that one as well. My part time help will once again be the "star" of the show...:laugh: just like he was here...http://youtu.be/5VSPIH3ce28
