Cold calls, get to a roundtable I'm at and watch me in action.
Just another ME post?
What value is there for people to build their businesses here? We need to teach folks how to build their business as what I or you do may not be appropriate for them?
Thank You. No apologising for anything I ever wrote. I Only apologise for wasting time that could be used to grow a business.
I only spoke that it is good you promote your business and your RT daily on every BBS I post on. There again, I question the need to make money from others and using their businesses to grow mine at their cost. We wrote many times about the idea that you feel nothing free is worth it? It is costing people from the UAMCC, PT and GS to adverrtise your businesses daily. Someone has to pay to even run the sites? Someone has to make the sites available for contractors to network and post their ideas. Having anyone use this form as an advertising agent to grow their business to me is not reasonable. How about me posting daily remarks and selling my business on PWI? This would be no different would it? You kicked APPLE off your site just for this reason? The mentality of "Look at me", is unfair, unless we pay for it. Leading people to my web site from yours, using remarks and doing whatever it takes to get peple away from your site to mine? Unfair? I believe so. Of course we all know the PW industry needs help. We have too many folks working for less money and not growing their business. They need help from all of us. They should not have to pay a dime for assistance or advice.
Hey Tony ~If you think a thread called "Ask any question relating to Flatwork" is a waste of time IN the Flatwork Cleaning forum, ON a PRESSURE WASHING contractor board then I certainly understand why you need to use your time more effectively growing your business because you certainly aren't willing to grow the business by learning from the experience of others in the field.
The only thing improper about the thread was your whining about Ron.
I just called BS on it because it was BS.
Look, if you guys want this board to be some high and mighty place where you steer people in whatever direction you prefer them to go, via hijacking a thread to "bring them back in line" then you can have it and watch it evaporate in time.
The fact is your remarks about Ron were uncalled for and revealed a lot.
I agree Rick....I don't know if there are long standing bad feelings here but it's pretty strange. Ron drove over 2 hours out of his way at night in the rain in my neck of the woods to have dinner with me. I guarantee I am the ONLY person that gained professionally from the meeting. If developing cold calling skills aren't about building a business I don't know what is.
If you feel it is wasting your time you have the option to STOP reading. If you notice the UAMCC has Google ads and banners to create revenue. Which it should to help it survive. PWI has nothing that I know of. A little self promotion for RT's organized by others that Ron may attend doesn't seem inappropriate to me. Just my opinion.
