Is this a Scam? from a PM I was sent by member dp135

hello again, I was became curious about the roof business. Because of this
the agent part, where I pay 3,750.

I think its a scam, because he told me that if I pass out 10 cards by door I'll get 3-4 ppl.

I'm also only supposed to do, just ranch houses.

he gave me a number of a guy in florida, and he told me 10 out of 100 will become customers, just from door hangers.

Is this a scam?

Hello and thanks for the question DP135,

I am not in the habit of being critical of others, their business methods and I don't keep up with all the scams out there.

I do however ask that if you have a question like this, that you post it on the board so that others can respond to your questions.

My experience is what I can share and that is if you keep your $3750 in the bank and study this forum and read like I mentioned which is FREE to you, most likely you will get the info you seek and not give away money in these tight economic times.

This is NOT an EASY business but it is fairly simple to perform and with the right mix of marketing efforts you will see people interested and you will eventually get business and then repeats and word of mouth. This takes time.

If you are needing money badly and want to start your own business then keep your money and STUDY the principles of ROOF CLEANING and listen to others that are ALREADY in the FIELD doing the work, then look at the pictures of the equipment and build your own rig or buy a trailer with the right equipment and get to work.

There is not a handholding Roof Cleaning business out there that will make you promises of income expectations and customers automatically beating a path to your door.

You need marketing chops and hard work not smooth sales pitches.

That is just my opinion.

Do your research, usually if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Good Luck to you DP135. Keep reading and asking questions and post those question on the open forum instaed of PM so others can respond to your questions also.

Thanks, David

Always remember that there are no guarantees in life.

The methods here are the easiest, most cost-effective and are based on the ARMA guidelines.

Most stuff you see out there need some sort of pressure to rinse, a little more pressure with a pressure washer and you don't need their chemicals.

I am not telling you to use a pressure washer, just understand the difference between the other companies out there and what is talked about here.

Read a lot of posts here and you will learn and understand.

Save your money for a good pump, hose, tank, hose reel, etc... to get started.
