For $4 a lead how can one go wrong plus they provide another great source to promote my business.
Our ad can be seen at http://www.thumbtack.com/Exterior-House-Painting-Saint-Louis-MO/service/153069
and we just paid our first $4 for a lead. We do not have to take any lead ... we choose the leads that are sent to us!
I already pay one lead service $75 a month and I advertise on Angie's List for about $61 a month, plus give Google $50 a month. It cost money to make money!
Google is also very rewarding (google places)....google "house painter st louis" I am "A" baloon...This is also an inexpensive way to advertise.
Stand out from the rest ... at this time for example no one is promoting with terms such as realtor st louis, realtor chicago, etc. GOOGLE PLACES!
Wishing all of your good income!
