I would warn him though that us SP's must tread carefully responding to requests like the one you made above. If examples are provided that lead directly back to his site, that could trigger a flag, especially for a new member. We're not as free to post links as contractor members are.

No need to post a link, just a pic of an ad.
Pretty simple. You want to see my work to prove I can do what I claim I post a pic.


In addition to forum rules, there's also the nature of our business model for those of us that help business owners make more money. Most of that relationship is held in confidence. Only in cases where a client provides a testimonial or grants permission can we provide examples beyond something generic to illustrate a point.

If it is that successful I am sure that one client would grant permission. It's also not a stretch to assume you guys have templates with generic information that conveys the idea of the ad.

When you asked me for an example in post #90, I'll have to presume you're referring a contractor business model that books months out like a deck builder or remodeler because roofing, siding, insulation, gutters and such are different. I recall a statement made by a contractor in the first group when we met face to face several years ago and never forgot it because I admired his business savvy.

He told me in his early years he hired family like his wife to do the books but discovered that was bad in practice. She didn't enjoy it for one and he wasn't hiring based on qualifications. Over the years I've seen him add many team members and significantly grow his business. He gets LOTS of referrals and is booked solid, yet never lets up on his site or marketing. Last year he increased his budget even though he was already kicking it.

Go back and read my comments in the entire thread. Digest it and you will understand what I said. You said what I said, he uses it to grow. Meaning he has plenty of work, but wants to expand at a rate that exceeds his lead source. That is one of the examples I gave that would use marketing services such as yours.

He also added an in house marketing manager in 2017 and even then, she was swamped in spite of the fact that I was already handling some of the load that may have otherwise been her responsibility.

You're right that's not necessary. But it is to propel in an upward direction. Not everyone wants that but if you do, you can't afford to rest on laurels.
You still are adding nothing of substance and haven't answered a single one of my questions. But I wouldn't expect much more from a marketer. Never show your hand and always direct their attention where you want it.

Of course, I have this kind of info on my site from more than one.

I won't address your insults though but I knew in advance you have to have the last word no matter what. Here's your chance. Take it. I have other matters to attend to.

Lol...I love it when people say that "last word" nonsense. It has nothing to do with last word. It just last effort to make it look like you are some how superior in not needing the last word and that my arguments are not of any substance, but just to achieve the last word. It's called a conversation. You say something, I respond. Then you respond. Who cares about the "last word". If you don't want to continue the conversation just be a man and say it. Don't hide behind some backhanded insult.
