    Just want to give a loud and motivated Thanks to all the members on here. I have been running my company officially now for 3 months under the eyes of the gov't. With all the helpful tips you all have posted I have just recently got my 75th weekly customer and numerous commercial contracts. I have went through multiple sets of equipment upgrading due to rapid growth. I owe it all to you all and your helpful knowledge.

    Thanks again

    yup, whats the story? Three months in business and your equipment list has nearly all new equipment valued near $70,000 (aprox. guess)

    Any idiot can go out and buy equipment, my interest was in acquiring 75 accounts in 3 months. Marketing tricks, secrets etc.

    Not all that equipment. Most idiots dont have $70,000 laying around or the credit to finance it in this tough credit economy. Anyone who thinks getting accounts rapidly from advice of a stranger in a different market with unique circumstances is an idiot though.:laugh:

    No, I don't think every ones situation is the same, and I know different marketing techniques work in certain areas, but I'm always open to hear others results and what they used. I'm a curious guy always wanting to learn. If a person is successful then I know I can learn from them, if he can get that many accounts that quickly then he is doing something right.

    Or he is a lowballer and in a few years when he wears his new stuff out and goes broke........ Oh well.
