A couple of weeks into using Craigslist and I am now turning away jobs. I turned down a job this morning from a lady who has 2 acres in a way upper class neighborhood. She told me on the phone that she had 2 companies so far this year had had to stop using them. (that was on Saturday). She wanted me to come out on Sunday morning and give her an estimate and bring the gear to mow the lawn. Then she called me Saturday night and said she had yet another company come out and mow on Saturday but still wants me to come out for the estimate on Sunday.
I called her and told her that were just not interested and that were looking for customers to build a relationship with not somone who is changing companies eveytime the sun comes up.
how did you do your flyer and get it on Craigslist? Does anyone use photobucket?
I like you ad. How did you create it and get it on Craigs? I have noticed flyers on photobucket. Does anyone know how to do or get flyers onto photobucket to use on Craigslist? Thanks for your help.
I get those kind of calls for sure, but I give them my price and if they don't like it, it's their problem. I actually find I get some of these desperate last minute type of things, since they don't have time to research companies etc. they just look for a quick solution on Craigslist.
I've gotten a number of good commercial accounts out of Craigslist and some other jobs for estate sales and things of that nature where people just need to find someone to handle the work, and they don't want/need to put too much time and effort into it.
My advice is to have a nice, clean, professional looking ad rather than the "I'm a guy with a mower" type of thing, then people know you're legit.
I post ads every day on craigslist, trying to compete with another company who posts right after me. I took a few days off, & so did the other guy. I decided to post again and BAM he did right away lol...
