As some of you may remember, I attempted to employ the “lease-a-site” model
So I chose roofers in RI….
I wasn’t really getting anywhere UNTIL I put up a Google Places listing…
Then I start gettin’ calls from customers…. and calling roofers to pass out the leads…
And one guy even gave me a kick back for job he got from it!! … So I started sending out postcards and cold calling roofers….
I’d tell em “I designed a roofing site for an online class, and now people are calling me… yada, yada, yada…”
Then this one roofer guy called and said “let’s talk” and basically just wanted it…
$197 — and he wants it for 5 years.
Actually I think I coulda got more, but it was an “expereience.”
P.S. When I changed the google map listing (and put his number on it) it
disappeared for now… which I had a feeling it might… I’ll see what happens.
