Best of the Beach – Do a Small Biz a Favor?

Monster Clean has added itself to the “Best of the Beach” listing of vendors this year for several reasons:

1) To see if the advertising (small business card size) generates any extra business
2) To see if we can get enough votes vs our closest competition (ServPro) to win the “Gold”
3) To see if the post card campaign we used will generate any new business (it did – 4 new jobs on the books the day after we mailed them!)

When we signed up for the contest, we were told our ad would be in the “Best Of” section with all the other vendors. The Virginian Pilot screwed it up (dang it!) and placed our ad in the “Home Section” instead. This might be OK for regular advertising, but unfortunately no one is looking for us to vote in that section of the paper.

So we are doing damage control AND get as many votes as possible.

You can help us by voting for us three ways (and we hope you DO vote for us all three ways:

1) Whip out that handy, dandy cell phone and text the code letters “ECA” to the short # 21333.

2) Go to www.hamptonroads.com and create a profile (takes all of 5 seconds). Then go to www.hamptonroads.com/bestof, and scroll down to:

(a) Virginia Beach – when that page opens, click on the “Home Services” link and we are near the top – Carpet Cleaners – vote for Monster Clean.

(b) Then go back to all the other cities on the available lists, and “write in” (or vote for if it’s appeared on the list) Monster Clean – usually in Carpet Cleaning or Home Contract Services listing(s).

FYI: ANY BUSINESS CAN BE A WRITE IN – so if you haven’t planned on entering the contest, but want to – simply get all your customers, friends, and family to go to the paper’s website and write in your name in the appropriate category. Good Luck!

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! WE APPRECIATE ALL THE ASSISTANCE YOU CAN HELP US WITH!

WE WILL BE HAPPY TO RETURN THE FAVOR IF YOU ARE IN THE “BEST OF” CONTEST ALSO!~

Thanks!
