I've taken a look at your website and would like to discuss the possiblity of doing some marketing for my business. I have a junk hauling business and own the domain name www.junkitnow.com. However, I do not have a website or any way to expand my business at present. I'm also on a guerilla marketing budget.
I've thought about the idea of doing a direct marketing coupon stuffed inside a Pennysaver magazine targeted to upper income level households.
I would need to create an irresistible offer as a way of lead generation and new business. Do you have any suggestions?
Presently, I'm spending $62.50 per week under hauling in the classifieds with minimal results. I'm in the right category IF somebody happens to need my service when my ad is running but I'm afraid this passive approach is not the most effective way to market my service. I use to spend about $30.00 per week and get 7-10 times net on my ad cost. So if I spent $120.00 a month I'd clear about $800.-$1,200. a month which I thought was pretty good. this was always on a part time basis. I never had enough business to call it full time.
The circulation of this paper is about 150,000 according to my sales rep but how many of those people actually see my ad. Few, I would imagine. Futhermore, I'm just one of about 5 or 6 other such businesses running similiar ads so I need to do something different to stand out and grab more business.
Please email me or feel free to call me at home.
I've love to dicuss this with you and any ideas you may have that may help me generate more profits. Thank you very much!
With warm regards
