No, what was it about, we unsung engineers?
You should find the movie. I really don't want to give anything away.
Thanks, we'll be going south to Cactus Hug soon, could be a great winter flic. I'll check Amazon.
Bump, so how are sales?
I wish you the best of luck but right now up selling to more efficient systems are tough much less anything else.
Sales have doubled compared to last year but they have slowed due to the time of year for now. Looking forward to see if they double again next year as they have the last 3 yrs. Molds, patent, etc... are very expensive so I have a ways to go yet but I'm thankful it has been heading in the right direction.
I don't personally look at my product as "up selling". Those that have to replace a few sprinkler heads due to accidental damage caused from mower tires each year, ends up costing them much more than the Sprinkler Buddy. It has saved me money in my lawn service because I personally often paid out of my own pocket to replace the damaged head.
What about those of us that make money repairing?
The cement donuts have been around here in FL for many years. They haven't slowed repairs. Many don't care for the look and HOA's think the lawn guys pays for repairs. lol
Plenty of room in this world for us booth to make a living. I won't be putting anyone out of business I promise.
For the most part, it has been homeowners that do their own repairs buying my product. I'll be happy if that remains to be the case. Plenty of them out there.
You might try marketing to Landscape Architects (LA). They have less concern for the $$$ because all they are being paid to do is design a system and spec all the parts.
If a LA specs it everyone bidding the job will price accordingly to install it. Get a few LA firms on board and you will start selling thousands. This is bc if it is spec'd on the plans it MUST be installed.
