 I went to get the mail from my new curbside box. There was a postcard stuck to the box with tape and a seperate ad placed inside the box.
 I called the post office, told thed I was pissed and wanted something done about it. She said she would call them and request them to pay the postage. I said are you kidding me. That's it. What about a Federal Offence? We will require them to pay postage.

Yep, and to think they want to increase postage again??? Around here the city will nail you along with the post office..........I've noticed that the local Academy sports place is just tossing the ads, kinda like the newspaper to avoid paying the postage.

I have been told it was a stiff penalty to tamper with someones mailbox and you certainly don't open one.
The people sticking tape to the box don't care if the tape pulls the paint from the box. These same people don't carry insurance or license. They just want to run under the radar and Lowball. That being said if you want to advertise that way it seems you can without penalty. I choose not to because I should not open someones personal property and I know how it makes me feel.

Taping ads to mailboxes is far from a tactic that is used only by lowball hacks. I don't see the difference between taping it ON the mailbox, on the door or throwing a rock advertisment in the driveway. Putting it IN the mailbox is a different story, but still nothing to make a big deal out of.

 Hopefully you're doing that "Crap" as well. If you're not, then you are missing out on tons of business.

Amen, and missing even more if you don't stop to knock ON the door, and introduce yourself! I canvassed for years, till I got established. Here was my pitch  "Hello, I am Chris of Apple Non Pressure Roof Cleaning, I am not selling anything. You live in a deed restricted community, and may need my safe roof cleaning service someday, so keep my card, and call me for a free demonstration to see what your roof can look like"  Then you SHUT UP, and I mean STFU!

One out of every 4 people get curious about the free demonstration, so then you say "Ok, that roof is pretty filthy, I don't know if it will clean, let's see" and then shoot a spot real quick. Act suprised when it cleans, hand them your card, then start to leave!

Do  not start selling, let them come to you, you have them now! Even walk away, knowing they will call you back soon. Remember, you TOLD them you were not selling anything. Do not make a liar out of yourself, and start being the salesman you told them you were not! Everyone HATES salesmen, and you are not one. You are simply the hard working roof cleaner servicing their neighborhood, nothing more, nothing less!

My brother is an air conditioning contractor in brandon florida. He sends out what LOOK like A/C Service tech's on sales calls, in blue collar attire with tools. These are deadly salespeople, because they don't LOOK like salespeople. Is anyone "getting it" yet ?

They are what is called "SID'S" or Salesmen in Disguise.

Learn how to be a successful SID, and you will never starve in the roof cleaning business.

Im not a low baller and I have insurance and run a business that is growing like a weed. I pay my guys to go out and put postcards in paper boxes. I think by you saying that all peple that do that are low ballers with no insurance if pretty silly now don't you think? Sometimes I even stop when I see a home owner out and introduce my self and tell them about our services. What does that make me....a stalker? Don't think so. 

 

 I understand how someone can get pissed by having things put on there mail boxes but calling them all low ballers with no insurance is a little much.

I do not want anyone near my mailbox or I come unglued.  5 years ago someone stole my mail that was waiting to be mailed.  One of the letters had a check in it.  They printed their own checks with their name and my bank routing # on it.  $10 grand later I found out when my checks started bouncing...

IMO, If i have to pay so should they. The mailman here has called the person to remove the flyers berfore he takes legal action. It wasw getting real bad for a while, there was like about 5+ flyers taped to the P.O. boxes and mailboxes. then they had it. most were lanscapers and handymen. Its a law and i pay money to do it. especilly because the y are lowballers.(most)

There's no law that Im aware of that keeps you from taping it to the mailbox. You just cant place it INSIDE. I could be wrong about that but Im pretty sure thats accurate.

Some people think knocking on doors is obnoxious. Its all relative.
