Just wondering how many carpet cleaners  would want emails sent to them every other day with the Name, phone and address of home owners that just listed their home for sale.  These homes will have just been listed within the last 3 days max.

Do you see homeowners that are trying to sell their homes as a person that REALLLLLLLLLY needs your service?

Please let me know. Post here or email me.

I'm trying to determine if there is enough interst for my new product.

Thanks for your help

Jason

Around here, the carpets are cleaned before the houses hit the market. Seems your info would be a little untimely.

it could work, you just have to try it

The product I'm trying to develop is a targeted mailing list that would be of interest to several diff. company that are not in competition with each other. If you were in Cook county Ill.  You would be the only carpet cleaner that would be sent the info.   ADWA it is not for the new home buyer it would be for the seller of the home.  The info product is not contain email info ofthe homle seller.  Just name, property address, and phone number.   You could use the info for direct mail post card, followed by a phone call or visit to sell your service.  My business would gather the info and sell to various businesses that want to reach home sellers.

I hope that this is a little more clear as to what the product is.

Thanks for your comments

You may find it alot easier to market to real estate agents, they deal with more customers, have an interest in timely service and can speak to both the buyer and seller about the services.

I like the idea of "notifying" new customers of non-competitive businesses, however, your time may be better spent marketing to the middleman, whom has already gained the trust of the buyer/seller. They can do the selling for you.

Have you ever bought/sold a house? The last thing i am doing is checking my e-mail! I've bought a few and sold a few and the only thing i do is work, answer the phone and hope it's my agent with an offer. Consider the negatives before putting too much money into it.

Just my experience.
