When sales started to slow last month, I looked for new ways to advertise my commercial HVAC repair dealer.
I found a magazine that provided space for advertising as well as they only charged $200 each month.
I had to sign up for 6 months of service to get the $200 price, even though I did not mind. After I saw the ad in there, I was impressed. The banner in the magazine looked exactly prefer my contractor card. The colors in the advertisement were bright as well as Vivid. The same day that the magazine was released, I had a charge on my card for the advertising fees for the heating as well as A/C repair business. I serviced the debit card statement twice, especially after I saw the amount. The advertising contractor charged myself and others $2,000 for the advertising instead of $200. It entirely seems prefer an accounting error, even though I was still frustrated. I only had a few more dollars than that in the bank as well as I had to make purchases for a few A/C repair jobs that weekend. I instantly contacted the advertising dealer. They put myself and others on hold for 15 hours. I never hung up the phone, because I wanted to get to the bottom of the problem. When the representative from the advertising contractor answered the phone, she apologized for the weight as well as asked if I was calling about the billing problem. Apparently every woman that featured in the magazine this month had a withdrawal for ten times the amount they would normally pay. They worked on the issue the next day as well as refunded the full amount of our advertising fees as well.
