    Last year at this time I was getting almost too many calls from ads and referrals. The past few weeks this year have been the opposite....few calls. Obviously the weather distracts people from geting things set up but I guess I never cease to be amazed how people dont PLAN for our services....just wondering if your new business calls are considerably fewer right now compared to past years???...if they aren't, I need to fix something in my marketing plan!!!

    Yeah I know, they'll all be calling at once and went the work done tomorrow. Well tomorrow is looking more and more like MAY.

    When we had that warm spell about a week and a half ago the phone was ringing. Since we had all the rain and snow the phone pretty much stopped ringing. Sure has been some cranky weather the past year. Matt

    I was starting to think that the phone bill didn't get paid. We are off to a much slower start than last year. Once it stops snowing I'm sure that we will all be crazy with the phone calls.

    same here i only got 5 new calls this year.im glad to see some guys are having the same problems.this was a hell of a winter and alot of people are trying to recover from it income wise.also its been cold still,but as soon as the sun comes out and they see the grass and trees start to grow you will be getting tons of calls.the war also slows things up because people are watching it and worried about whats going on.once all this goes away things will change. :)
