Thread: What are you doing to make money today?

  1. #1

    Default What are you doing to make money today?

    They say that a plan is worthless unless you write it down. They also say that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

    I want to know every morning what your plan is to drive traffic, get leads, and ultimately make more money? I talk to guys all the time who say they arent getting business. when I ask them what they are doing to drive calls and sales, I get "Well I post on craigslist everyday, and pass out flyers sometimes.

    You have to have an active, thought out plan every single day designed to get more leads. Winging it everyday wont cut it. Once you write it down, it forces you to stick to it, otherwise you're lying to yourself, and by putting it on here you would be lying to everyone else too, if you dont stick to it.

    So today, EXACTLY what will you be doing to make more money? Waiting for the phone to ring? Posting some ads on craigslist? Knocking on doors? Calling, writing and faxing?

    I will be:

    1. Emailing 10 PM's like I do almost everyday.
    2. Celeste has sent out 4000 postcards in the past couple of days and will send out another 1000 more today.
    3. Proximity marketing will be done after this mornings job to include knocking on doors and posting flyers.
    4. I am going to design and order promo material for PM's and realtors.
    5. I am calling realtors that have used us recently to say hello, and ask for more business.

    Theres my list for the day. Whats yours?

    I've been working on what I hope "soon" will be my new website. I sent out emails to all the Realtors I've dealt with and hope to deal with about the importance of "curb appeal"... I just can't get them to understand if a customer is turned off when they first drive up, the rest is a moot point. Scheduled three washing esimates for tomorrow, one a repeat customer.

    Scott,
    Great question. I started out by mailing out Thank you Gift certificates to a few customers. Doing a couple estimates. Meeting with a local photographer for a refinish of his studio. Lunch with a C of C tip club. Couple more estimates. Took some Picked up some Stainless coupleings and checked on repairing a hose. Washed trucks. Calle a couple customers and now relaxing. Nice day. It is a good thread to get going here. Makes us think of what we actually are doing day to day. Thank you.

    Returning phone calls, working on my mid-April mailer, and how my trade show booth will be laid out. I also slept all day until about 2pm .

    Today is the first day I've had off in a while. I have a fear of things going south, so I am working a full time job too.

    Last week me and one of my guys did 160 apt units in 10 huge buildings in 4 days. The place is 1.75 hrs away, then I also worked the 'job' each night 5pm to 2am and picked my guy up @ 6am to do it again.

    Worked the job Saturday and did a large resi house, roof, and walkway Sunday.

    Tomorrow we are back at the Apts to do 4 roofs, and then to work again at 5pm. The job Fri, Sat, and Easter, 12 estimates for Mon and another large resi house and roof Tues. and work the job 3-11 each day.

    I'm tired!
