i am in a leads, our group specializes in home repairs only. we range from plumber, window treatments. anyway, the electrician in the group is a one man shop and he mirrors his company off of mr. electric which i guess is a franchise company like the rooter companies. his company is not franchised though, anyway he is very clean cut and i guess the best way to describe him is anal. (his van is wrapped with his cartoon type logo),but i enjoy talking to him because i dont think like him at all so he kind of opens my mind to things. he's flat rate. we were talking today about the group, he was saying since the group was started he has made over $8200 dollars on something like 13 calls. he tracks everything, he can tell what zip code he makes the most money in. he admits on not being the cheapest and that he is selling a service and that he is a salesman first and an electrician second. and his closing percentage on jobs is over 80% so people are buying what he's selling. i have received more jobs from this leads group but i have not made nearly as much money, $630 per job is impressive i am not even close to that. am i being to nice should i start selling more. i see opportunities when i am in someones house but i just dont push it. i do what they call me to do and thats it unless it is something potentially harmful. what do you guys think? and at what point do you become a used car salesman? i think this may be a good thread for the younger business's so throw in your $.02
