Also want to point out that I doubt David Wood is using/paying for leads anymore. No JIms is paying for leads after a year, if he is he hasnt done his marketing well.
Yea, I agree but he says he "has his leads turned on" and does so to "continually update his business". The video whilst motivational is mealy marketing a profit marketing tool. Not the best done either as when buying a mowing business the money is in the clients, yet he has only one client from the business he bought. So he bought bad customers. Bad customers= a bad business. And I know I keep going back to it but I still find it interesting that its more about Landscaping. Its obviously the way they want Jims to get more involved into. Less Franchise competition in that area? Jims seem to have a franchise for everything these days. He is a smart man.
Sorry of I'm picking the video apart but that video doesn't sell or motivate me one bit. There is simply to many holes in it.
$600 a month will get you pretty good radio time here.
Please don't take me wrong I'm in no way against franchises. They suit people who would rather not build a round from scratch (which is hard for most of us- no argument) and provide a liveable income from day one and is worth more to on sell at a later date.
Unlike Croc I have a mortgage but its a very low one but like Croc I don't need to earn a large wage anymore and certainly don't want to work longish hrs or give money to a third party for no real reason.
We all mow lawns, we all do the same job and face the same challengers and we all go about it in the way that best suites us.
