There's this company that contacts me every now and then. They're not spamming me or anything like that.

It's just I have been thinking about their offer.

For a 25% commission of my work, they will supply clients to me. Sounds like a no-brainer to me but I dunno.

There's always that site, HomeAdvisor. Ha ha.

What do you guys think?
Would you consider that 25% commission offer if you were in my shoes?

25% of what? Cost of the job or profit? If profit, how do you establish what is your profit before their 25% gets taken out.

I always avoid "pay to play sites".. IMO it is just a black hole to pour money into..

You can take that 25% and invest it into some classy brochures and stop in every store in every strip mall and say hello..

Put some T-12 ballasts.. 4 & 8' lamps in back of your truck maybe you can find a few new customers..

How the hell can you make any $$$ if you pay them 25% of any portion of the job.....and what exactly are you paying them for?? Advertising?? Referrals??

Screw them......they do nothing and want a cut of our hard earned money.:no:

I call shenanigans on this one.

No way in HE11 is anyone demanding 25%.

I think you skip this idea until you can provide us with more detailed information.
