So I've been out hitting the pavement, cold calling etc. to drum up some business and have discovered many of the plumbers, electricians, carpenters etc. want some kind of kick back fee. Problem is...I really can't see going more than 10% on ANY job. It just seems pointless then. More than a few not only reject the 10% but also my minimum charges. Apparently I'm too expensive And also, a 10% kickback for simply handing someone my card isn't worth it to 'em. Why are some people so damn greedy wanting something for nothing??? I'd rather just dump more money into direct mailers to get business. This business of knocking on doors is for the birds. Any thought's?
