    We used them a little bit last season. They will send leads fairly often. I didn't pay for their monthly service because we got too busy last season to handle the work. I did submit quotes for the freebies they sent me though.

    Once we are able to handle more business I will most likely sign up for their monthly service for unlimited leads.

    Free to post your business on their site. Individual leads are $5-6, then they will sometimes give you a freebie on the next one. Monthly unlimited leads is like $30-35. They will email you with leads and the basics about what services are needed. If you pay, or have monthly service, you will get the leads contact info and specific address.

    Based on what I experienced it would be worth getting the monthly service.

    do you have to select the services you do like lawn mowing landscaping hardscaping stuff like and they are still $5-$6 no matter what it is because we use home advisor now and everything is a different price and some leads our bs everything of got on there this year has been a waste of my time.

    Yes you list your services and it matches you up with leads who need the same services.

    I am not sure if prices change but I had 4 services listed and every lead was 5-6. Some were for mowing, some for aeration and overseeding, etc. I think that is their standard fee for any type of lead regardless of the work they need done or services you provide.

    What you can do is list your business, then wait for them to send you a lead and you will know exactly what they cost individually. It will have a button for you to accept the lead and pay the single lead fee or you simply refuse it or not respond at all.

    I had 3 people in the past week want a quote for landscaping and I wrote back saying I needed to see the property to give a quote and I never heard back from anyone of them.. I have had 15 leads in the past 6 months and only got 1 job..
