Can we give this guy a break over his avatar? Really. A picture of a bug is not disrespecting anyone. And now we are going to be told what avatars are ok
for use?
Lighten up and have a sense of humor. Its his business that it reflects upon.

Where is the bug??
I did notice The RICA Logo indicating you are certified.
The price on your web page is setting you up to be not profitable.
I personally would never promise anyone a quote in two hours nor would I give a quote on a house that size from a birds eye view. But I am not as smart as alot of other people either.

The bug has been smashed....

The logo on my site represents this fine site...not that I'm certifed...different logo for members that have passed Master Chris' test :)

I have the ability to give Bird's Eye pricing as well as Quick Quotes....this might not be the most accurate quoting strategy...but if it makes it convenient for the customer and sets me aside from everyone else....it works for me. The issue about customers shopping my bid has been brought to my attention and after operating two successful business as well as this one....I have a unique ability to read people!

Thanks!

Personally, I LIKED the Smiling Bob guy from the male enhancement commercial he was using for his Forum Avatar!
It was in a thread with the Kangaroo drinking a beer, almost fell out of my chair laughing so hard.

I want RCIA to be a fun, colorful, cheerful place.

Back when I was single, I had a profile on every singles site tellin all about me, in 4500 words!

Got very few interests.

I changed it to a short, funny profile, and was almost overwhelmed with responses from Women!

People, IMHO, LOVE a sense of humor, as long as it is in good taste.
I did not like the Bug either on his website, but the smiling Bob avatar I miss!

The things you mentioned are all good stuff, knocking on doors direct mailers, etc...
Running your own biz. you must maximize your time to be productive, here's ONE I have done and trying to be consistent on it "TIME MANAGEMENT"
get a daily schedule sheet that shows things to do today.
example only:
from 6-7am - prepare mix to roof cleaning
8-9 get breakfast and dress up
10-12- clean roof
12-1- pass out flyers around the area where you cleaned roof
1-2pm- lunch
2-5- back home-finish draft on mailers, go to printing shop, go to post office and send out mailers.
5-6 - do errands for family or self- we also have a life-
6-7- review your day and see where you can improve..do another for the next day.
8-9- dinner- go visit RCIA forum
10- goodnite.

to execute a plan precisely is hard, but if treated consistently, good things will happen.
it's like a machine..that has production goals, we end up working a lot more when we run our own biz.

hope this helps,
rick

knocking on doors- i call it "FARMING"

you got to love it! love walking and love talking to people.
the areas i selected are populated with "UGLY" roofs that needs to be cleaned.
objective - to get a job! and to get the HO's familiar with you and your company, to know you. must try to talk to HO's face to face for introduction if they're not home then leave a flyer. basically your planting seeds.. must go back next month or two and pass out another flyer and check your "FARM". I don't do too much in a day of it that it would make me feel bored, just enough for a nice work out.

I always try to improve my skills on how to effectively approach people, taking down notes when somebody asked something and i was'nt sure about the answer, i ask them if i could call them back on it, which gives me another opportunity to talk to the HO and if he's not ready for a roof cleaning maybe i could get hom to refer me.

two birds with one stone- business and health!

hope this helps,
rick

Bob I agree with the other guys regarding price.  That would be a fair price for just the front.  Also remember your post should give something back to the forum, I see you have been on here for 10 days and already have 58 post.  Take a day and read before posting about silly non informing things.  Remember all the info your asking about is here on this board use the search at the top of the forum and you will learn about marketing, pricing and everything else to be succesful.  Godd Luck

I am aware of all the fine things on this site...as I continue creating general conversation. I am using this site to learn and make friends in the business.

I thank you for giving your feedback on the price as well as the opportunity to post.

You stud!  


lol



Seriously though. I think it has to be a combination of many different things.

Basically decide who you want to target and where they are.

THEN target the hell out of them!

Bill,
You also need to consider the amount of plants and landscaping into the estimate,
