    Lightbulb Hey there

    Hey guys - Im pretty new here but Ive been following along as a non-member for some time. Im curious to know what you guys are finding to be most effective to generate leads. Of course word of mouth is the BEST but you cant always just rely on that. Thanks.

    Im 100% referral and successful. Therefore, your statements are BS.

    I am in a group of great entrepreneurs and that helps with word of mouth. When people know you personally and how you treat customers it is on the tip of their tongue whenever they hear someone with a need for you. Also you need google reviews and yelp reviews. they help legitimize you and it is just like a referral to most people.

    I agree with much of what the other members have said here. I don't spend a penny on advertising. I just make sure to consistently do good work and make sure my clients are always satisfied with the result. If you do that you'll get constant referrals and you'll stay busy. On the other hand you can pay someone thousands for new internet leads and you'll have to jack up your pricing to pay for it. Many advertisers make promises about how many leads you'll get but most of them are a scam.

    I can see the advantage of advertising for some. I have some HVACR associates that do that and their business has grown. But they also get "Can you beat this price?" or "Send me an estimate". I politely refuse. My way works for me.
