I got 2 jobs(calls)

Post by Matt; My carpet cleaner on Fri Feb 03, 2017 3:32 pm

Boy am I busy.
Guy calls for his brother, who's in the hospital(no he dosnt have 23 area rugs, and want to pay extra....) He's from Seattle, and I ask how he got my #.? He says" over here we just call Stanley steamer", but just googled and myour first.
They just call SS.
He googled me, I'm first. Ive done nothing to get to 1st.
Now as I'm typing this post, the sob calls back and cancels.

Who's your carpet cleaner?

Lol, I bet you SS told them they will give them 50% discounts off your price.
Trust me, you don't want them anyway, let SS have those headaches, ha..ha.....
It's a cutthroat business especially in the winter.
I thought about giving callers ( beat any companies's price with similar rating as mine on yelp ) deal, but as soon as I thought about the headaches that may arise from some of these cheap a$$es.

It usually only takes one SS cleaning and then they go with someone else the next time. They will either over wet the carpets or bait and switch them sometimes both lol. 

I'm pretty busy right snow stops sun comes out and boon!! Let's clean some carpet

Isn't it amazing though how SS has such a negative reputation, but always busy anyway. Power of advertising.
