    Do you track the average age of you Sprinkler Donut customers? I thought swing joints made those obsolete. I would think the AARP crowd would be your target market. Don't take this the wrong way.

    I bet in some FL retirement community you could go door to door and sell a truckload of those.

    I do, swing joints have helped a lot but many sprinkler heads still get broken even with swing joints installed.

    Most of my sales are to Texas and California. I don't have time to go door to door nor would I. lol I hate salesmen as much as the next guy.

    Not many FL sales because sprinkler donuts are found in every hardware store within our state. Folks here don't go online to find them.

    I was joking about going door to door. I don't think you can easily find donuts here anymore. I worked at Home Depot when I was a student and we stopped selling them.

    Many concrete sprinkler donuts get broken in the store or in transit. That's why they aren't widely sold across the USA. Shipping is also very expensive being they are so heavy. My product doesn't have those issues. With time, I hope to have my product in Home Depot or Lowe's.

    I just happened to find this site http://searchengineoptimizationaustin.com/ with good reviews. The site really caught my eye because the 295 number is local to my little city of Buda, TX. I've been trying to find established companies that don't have bad reviews lurking out there.

    The company is one of those rare ones that has all good reviews. I was not set on local but the owner lives just a few miles from me. I just got off the phone with her and had a really good down to earth conversation with her. Unlike all the Google partner sites I've talked to she did not make grand claims. She is in Chicago right now but I will be meeting with here when she gets back.

    She was honest and told me how things work and the ways to organically creep up the list. I'll let you know how things progress.

    That's awesome, rare to find a company you can sit down with face to face. Even better you found them local. Hope it works for you, they sound good by looking at their website.

    I'm waiting for the owner to get back in town.

    Here is a website of a local company that looks reasonable http://www.olyeller.com/. Their web services company is http://www.rgbinteractive.com/ in Dallas.

    I was PMing with Tony and he noticed the sites of the other place I'm talking with were a bit formatted and template 101 looking. I went though and looked at every sample site they sent me and they are indeed kind of out of the box and boring looking.

    My current site at www.plantscapesolutions.net is in need of some pizazz and the last thing I want to do is spend money to replicate what I already have.

    This site is pretty good on the home page http://www.designmyyard.com/index.asp. They do Before & After pictures like I do. They really need to just stick with one before and after and use the most dramatic shot. Too many before and after shots that are not dramatic start to bore you very quickly.

    This is the company http://www.mannixmarketing.com/ who did here site.
