How many hours of your time is 1500$? Maybe it would be better to spend a few hours at a social event and introduce yourself. Word of mouth is the best advertisement AND you could essentially pick the group of people who will be your customers.
If its anything like home advisor, then its gonna be a scam and the same water heater will goclaim is increase to 35 water heaters per mo for 1500-2000 per mo for 3-4 months only .
Seriously Only 5 miles??? I go out about 35 miles for a water heater call..Decided that I only will target a 5 mile radius around my house. So absent listening to their sales pitch- my plan would be to do flyers just like pc plumber wrote about and supplied the numbers.
Here’s easy way to make money.
Answer your phone 24/7 and pass your card around telling people that you answer your phone and show up on time.
You’ll get busy after a few weeks.
