This is exactly what i do:
First off you can do this with many services not just the one i chose..
I noticed that there are people and businesses that offer to inspect your car before you purchase it..The average price is around $80-$90 and most are really at about the $120 range..
I happen to have a personal friend who's a mechanic and works on the road , so i asked him "If i gave you leads on car inspections, where you show up and spend 20-30 minutes inspecting the engine, tranny, drive it around the block etc and give the customer an honest report on the condition of the vehicle, what would you charge me , he said "I'll do it for $40 all day long"
SO i told him, alright buddy keep your phone on you because im gonna start throwing leads at you atleast a few per week..
SO what i do is post an Ad on Craigslist about twice per week saying something like this:
Title :Car/Truck Inspections ..Don't buy before inspecting!
Body : We are the Best Car Inspection Service and also have the Lowest price in the business..
Call us now for our Craigslist special!
So i get about 10 calls weekly that turns out to about 4-7 people who pay, i charge them $75 so i am the Cheapest on Craigslist..
When the customer calls me i ask them what kind of car they are inspecting, what area are they in and i sell our service to them and explain that the low price is not because we do a bad inspection it's because we are hoping that if in the future they need mechanical work that they would consider us..They all seem to like that answer..
I probably work 20-30 minutes a week at this, either on my laptop, ipad or cellphone all combined for that total 3o mins
If this does happen where they need mechanical work later, this all goes to my friend so he wanted to go ahead and split it 50/50 on the $75 since im giving him the leads and he might have a long term paying cusotmer for other things..
I could really scale this up big time if i wanted but i have no time , think about it, you can have a little website created and post about 3-5 ads daily, if you folow my formula you'd probably get the 10 calls i get weekly on a daily basis..
I just want to help you guys expand your minds and think outside the box, there's money out there but it's not gonna come at you just because you saw the movie the Secret and you have been thinking about money.. You have to actually take action..
Alright just trying to help out the community!
