That's incredible. $78K a year in advertising! I think I need to reevaluate my advertising plan. I'm obviously not spending near enough.Grumpy said:I'm spending $1,000 a week on service magic alone right now... Quality Smith is somewhere around $500 a week
Keep in mind, I don't think my numbers are 'typical' for my situation. For a start-up like myself trying to build a referal client base, I will be getting that percentage up to 15% maybe even 20% here in the near future.PipeGuy said:If Mike's numbers are 'typical' then 8% = $975K a year in sales -almost $19K a week. That doesn't seem like it'd take much estimating resources. Does it?
Yep. Pretty much everything is word of mouth for me. Its nice getting to do showcase homes because those are like free advertising. And in my area on a showcase weekend you can expect around 3500-5k people on a weekend.Nathan said:What kind of business? New construction masonry?
