Freebie To Get A Foot in the Door
Permalink  
 


I have been thinking about ways to get my foot in the door in neighborhoods where my services are really needed. I am considering finding the house in these neighborhoods that gets the most traffic and working out a deal with that homeowner. The deal: I will wash your roof for free if you allow me to keep a sign in your yard to advertise my business and show the results to the rest of the neighborhood, and we'll keep it between us that it was done at no charge to you.

Has anyone tried this? I can't think of a better way to show off what I can do for these homeowners.

I think that is a common practice around here.. I'd say, go for it. You spend more money advertising than you would by spending a little money on materials and a few hours of time to clean a roof. I think the pros outweigh the cons on that one, as long as you are sure you can benefit from the freebie.

I did just that last year when I started on a church on a busy intersection and landed 4 jobs from it.
