    New sale #4 yesterday. Bid the neighbor next door also but couldn't close it. So far, we have 4 new and 3 small add ons. All but six of returning customers either installed already or on the schedule.

    Bid another big, 10K, job Wednesday from a customer referral, but no word back yet. The house has a metal roof and I'm not completely sure how to attach the C9's. Going with Linkables on the front flats, but they have gutters there so they will go up easily with spiral clips. C9's on the rest.

    I'm one of those with little serious competition in my area. There is one guy in my immediate area who advertises hard. But, he hangs customer lights or Walmart junk. There are several others in Beaumont. I rarely have a sales call where I am bidding against anyone else. I know that will likely change in the future. I feel like I may eventually regret not trying to grow faster and try to capture more of the market now before others come into the game in the future. I have a full time career job with the state (7 years from retirement), run a part time lawn service and full time holiday decorating during the season. I get very worn out this time of year.

    #3 yesterday off a small test run of 668 EDDM post cards I sent to a high end neighborhood that im not currently in. Nice job, 3 48" wreaths 250 clear c9 and a few starbursts. Gave 2 other estimates, one is a for sure no but im hoping to hear from the other. Have another estimate in the same neighborhood on Monday so hopefully we will get it also. Nolan Ryan lives on this route so hopefully his eyes saw the postcard. Have 5000 more post cards going out on Friday the 15th and considering sending about 4000 more the week after depending on how funds are. This year is by far the biggest money spent on advertising and its kinda uneasy for me.
