Not really a title, just rambling....
So I am looking to take my other business (I have a mowing business that I got rid of but now have back) to an all new level. I'm going to do something with it that no other person in the US is doing.... except for 1 dang guy that happens to be right in my area.... ya might know. Heck, he is just down the street from me... sigh.....
Anyway, since I have a lil competition I've been actually studying what others are doing (I've never cared what anyone else was doing before but this is a new venture) marketing wise and have been looking at a LOT of flyers and door hangers. Not only for mowing but cleaning also... just to stay on top of the 'game' and maybe get a new idea or a lead for an idea.
I am here to tell ya.... every marketer in the US needs to be FIRED.... QUICK! There are some awful pieces of 'work' out there. Every mowing flyer has green on it and says the same crap cleaning flyers do. Every cleaning flyer either has a cute picture or says a bunch of crap on it that by the time you get to the end of it you want to take a hammer and smash your.... ok, I better stop there.... but you get the point.
I just wanted to get that off my chest. I've looked at so many flyers and watched so many videos and people are so happy of what they design or what they PAY FOR and then.... very little results. There is an old saying.... continue to do what you are doing and you will get the same results.
If you say your flyer works great please fill in the blank,
I made $_______ million in 2014.
If you are only a thousandaire, you need to wake up.
My conclusion is that I am 100% sure I can take the mowing business to $1 million revenue within the next 18 months and double every year after that.... from what I've seen.... unless I get side-tracked. lol Same could be said for the cleaning business except I can't find anyone that will actually CLEAN. Everyone says they clean great but to MY standards they are all less than sub-par. Mostly former cleaning business owners. I could start a cleaning franchise and leave it up to the franchise owners to struggle but I wouldn't wish that pain on my enemy.
