I am doing some things. I thought I'd offer up some progress.... TV Spot On Local Cable- Its showing and I've gotten a few calls off of it. Not what I'd call quality leads, but I just want it to get my name out in our community. Donations- I have donated some treatments to the local schools and a conservation group's auction. These will get me goodwill and kharma I hope. I'll be in their programs. Mailings- I know my 500 card mailer wasn't huge. Someone even said it was a waste of time. Its gotten me 12 more customers so far. When you are small like me, thats nice. And they're still trickling in. Radio- One of my customers is a local Outdoors Writer and radio host. He wrote a piece about Fire Ants. He wrote the only way to get rid of them was to treat the mounds individually and get your neighbors to do the same. Now I have left info on my ant program. So I called him up (I guess I need better literature) and told him I would fix him up for some on air love. Of course, he was all over that. We talked a bit about paid ads, but I can't cover the whole city. So.... I went to my local rep from a chem company that mfgs fire ant control. Presented all of this and said "sure do wish we could advertise there." Guess what? My ad starts Saturday for 6 weeks and they are picking up the tab! SHHHweet! So I worked to make the ad come out to where I am the good guy. Instead of pulling a MegaCo and trying to steer 100% to myself by deception, its going to read "Contact your lawn care professional or if you are on the westside of town you can call my guys, _______ at ___ ___ ____ or at www.__________.com" So I'll be the only name mentioned, but not like "I'm the only one doing this" My Google Ad- Its still bringing them in too. They come in at about 4 - 8 a week. I am up to about $35 spent total on this one. I know this is small time for some of you and thats cool. I hope I can laugh too someday. But for a one man band....its going the right way.
