Facebook and reviews


#21

I’m not very consistent with my Facebook, but when I post, I share to maybe 70 pages and always get 2 or 3 customers from that. I email my customers after finishing and at the bottom I just attach the link to my page. Facebook.com/niagaraPW. Just attach that to the email and the review tab should be the first or second tab for them.

Alright guys. I’m giving it a shot to see if I can get 30 reviews on FB this year.


#23

ALWAYS give them the direct link to your page. Make it easy for them.

I did when she said yes. Today was bonkers. I barely remembered my own name when I left the last job.

@CastleCleaners see @SchertzServicesLLC FB ad above. Dang near perfect of an ad for any service business.

Facebook is a good to spread visual content, but instagram is way better to share your photos and images with potential clients . Make your social media accounts productive, not only for clarification for your own victories. If you cannot do it - ask professionals. We use
https://zen-promo.com/free_instagram_followers but its up to you what to try.Anyway, you should also try LinkID and facebook special services. They are not so expensive and could improve your income.
Good luck to you!

I know this post is a bit old but rather then start a new thread I’ll ask here. I love this idea, and for the most part I do it now but only up to certain square footage. What do you do when you pull up to some 7,000 - 8,000 sqft home and you’re thinking… man I really screwed myself on this one. I love the idea, but how can you do it without the disclaimer at the bottom stating *homes up to 2,500 sqft. Or something similar?

Tbh I hate that disclaimer being in my marketing material but at the moment I feel it’s necessary. If you can give me any ideas or suggestions that you haven’t mentioned?

Honestly I only had it happen 2 times in the last 2 years where I felt like I washed too much for the price. But more than often I left feeling like my price was set perfectly. Even the houses that were huge were still profitable. Lets be real here, it costs next to nothing to wash a house.


#29

Ok so basically the good outweighed the bad. I may have to try it for a period and see how it goes. Thanks

Very much so!

Harold, you can find pictures of almost every house online via trulia or Zillow. Can’t find it their then use google street view…can’t find it their then go via google satellite to get a rough idea

I have used google maps and street view. They work really well. I read somewhere that you can can use google earth and use markers to calculate square footage very accurately. Haven’t had a chance to try that yet. Which solves one problem. Use the apps to do “virtual quotes”.

Regarding the flat rates vs on-site quotes. I may expierment with both pricing strategies. Flat rate 1 story, and 2 story EDDM post cards for some areas that I would rather not travel to just for a quote. Then see how it goes. I don’t mind doing on-site quotes right now because I live in a city where almost everything is about 20 min one direction. I see the appeal for when I get more busy. Stupid me scheduled a 1 week vacation at the busiest time of year. Had to turn down three jobs so far.

It’s very easy to use google earth to calculate area. It’s best if doing it from a computer vs phone or tablet in my opinion. You can probably find a video on YouTube how to do it. If not I can upload a video sometime.

I just got a new iPad and downloaded the app but it won’t let me use the ruler to measure. I’ve tried searching for it on google to no avail. If anyone has any insight as to what I’m doing wrong I’d appreciate it.


#36

I’m guessing you have to do it from a real computer. I couldn’t do it on my iphone. Going to give it a try on a laptop when I get home.


#37

ruler is awesome

Yea, I’ve used it on an actual computer. It just won’t allow me to do it on my iPad.
