  1. Will do! Every time I hand out flyers or attend regular car meets I always offer 10% off. I'll let you guys know how it works out! Thanks everyone!
  2. Yea I totally agree, trying to make that work outside would most likely be a disaster. Well I appreciate all of the feedback and advice guys!
  3. Hey everyone, I own a window tinting business doing automotive residential and commercial window tinting. I stay super busy doing automotive jobs but I'm having some trouble figuring out a good way to advertise for residential and commercial tinting. I'd really like to transition over to doing mostly flat glass jobs. I have many years of flat glass experience and I really like the idea of transitioning over to doing mainly that because it seems to be a pretty untapped business venture in my area. Most people I even mention it to don't even realize that it's somehing people do. I advertise a lot on Facebook but I didn't get much feedback at all for Residential. Everyone always asks about automotive tinting but people don't seem to grasp the idea of how many benefits their are to tinting your home or office building . I'm curious if their is any other business owners who have success advertising and if anyone's willing to give me some advice on the best way to snag some people. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  4. Thanks for the feedback guys!! I'm thinking I might do that Roach. having a car set up and tinting it would be a cool way to kind of showcase what it is we do. that's what I was thinking! $250 for a whole day at an import event with thousands of people seems like a small price to pay to even just get word out and pass around my number. especially if I'm the only tint shop that is gonna be there. I couldn't believe the event coordinator said id be the only tint shop there. seems like a great venue to be at to me. thanks for all the feedback about facebook Dynamic. I actually do the exact same thing. I Boost posts to friends of people who have already liked my page and I do $7 a day everyday for my page to get likes. It seems that boosting pictures of high end cars I do gets WAY more feedback.
  5. Hmmmm....I was really hoping someone had a good experience with it. its supposed to be over 10,000 people at this event so I figured if anything it would just be worth the money to get the name of my business out there. It only costs $250 to be a vendor for the day which isn't much at all. I don't know.......Now I'm on the fence about it. I tell ya what, I started paying for Facebook Advertisements and either Its bullshit or I'm just not doing something right. Aside from the occasional Like on my business page, I'm not seeing very much feedback from it. Any advice Dynamic? I know you run a lot of facebook ads......do you customize your audience or just run ads in certain general areas? I've spent WELL over $200 on facebook ads and haven't received one damn phone call. Went to a local car meet and handed out fliers and scheduled 5 Jobs that night. Any suggestions?
  6. Hey everyone! Business has been pretty good lately! Recently I saw their was a BIG car meet right down the road from where I live so I figured i'd make fliers and go hand them out to potential customers and it worked very well. Not only that , it was just great to get to know new people and potential customers in the future. Yesterday I saw that their is a big Import event (Show/Drag Racing events) coming to a popular Drag strip very close to me and I am seriously considering paying to be a vendor at the event . I contacted the event coordinator and he told me I would be the only window tinting company their as a vendor. My question is, Has anyone paid to be a vendor at an event like this and if so, was it worth it in the long run? This would be the first time I've ever done something like this so any advice I could get would be much appreciated. THANKS GUYS !
  7. ok, thanks guys. I know you also have 3 categories you can pick for you audience. Do you guys find that any particular category is best? Like for instance, Vehicles /automotive window film/ Boats are three options you can pick. I didn't know if any of yall find certain categories best.
  8. What's up everyone. I am a day away from starting my Facebook advertisements and I'm just curious as to what audience categories other business owners find to be most effective in pulling in the right customers looking for window tint; or what have you all found or figured out that works the best. I would very much appreciate any advice that anyone could give me!! Thanks!!
  9. I sent Richard a message through Email, Facebook and his website and haven't gotten a response yet. Looks like their hasn't been much activity from him on any of his social media sites either . Hmmmm. Maybe he doesn't check his messages until Monday's. His style is awesome. Go's really well with the line of work we are in .hopefully I hear back from him.
  10. Lord knows you deal with that shit on a daily basis!!! smh.....
  11. Thank you so much for the help guys! im gonna send him an email tonight. I really appreciate it. That black Diamond Logo is bad ass man. 99 designs was the first place I checked out. I was really anxious and excited to use them because the idea of it sounds really cool but if you read reviews they are TERRIBLE! almost every single review is someone saying how bad they were ripped off and how amateur the designs are. nothing like the examples that they show you on their website. Basically what I needed was someone that one of you guys has already used and they did a nice professional job. Now I know what i'm getting into. I feel like a business logo is kind of like a first impression so I want it to look professional. Thanks guys!
  12. Hey Everyone!! I could really use some help from a fellow business owner! I very recently started my own business and I am having a VERY hard time finding a reliable website to design a business logo for me. It seems that all of the top google recommendations have mostly HORRIBLE reviews with some decent reviews here and there. Seems that most people are writing that they were completely ripped off. I'm looking for a good artist/graphic designer I can work with to create a professional logo for my new business. I see SO MANY businesses on here with really great logos and I'd really appreciate it if someone could help point me in the right direction. Thanks Guys!!
  13. Ahh yea man you're absolutely right! Instead of the Carbon I should go with the High Performance. Dude I've NEVER had a customer complain about their GPS not working or any kind of signal interference from electronics in the car after putting on Metallized film.
  14. Yea im gonna go with the UltraFX. I've read a ridiculous amount of good reviews so I gotta try this stuff out. I'm probably going: CarbonFX-Good UltraFX-Better Nano-Ceramic-Best Really looking forward to working with SolarFX. I've heard nothing but great things about their film and their customer service. Thanks for the help guys! always appreciated.
  15. thanks for the advice dude. Yea The winter months in Maryland really screws with business sometimes on the heat rejection point. I try to really push it anyways though because lord knows it gets HOT AS HELL here in the summer. Damn humidity in Maryland makes you feel like you're in a sauna. Ill probably still go with the second option though. I'm with you man, I don't like selling film that isn't color-stable. Thanks buddy
