I have recently found a resonably priced senior walk in tub....similar to the ones ed mcman sells on tv...Ed's tubs are $15,000 installed.
Ive gotten calls for them over the years and the lowest price tub i could find by a major manufacturer was $7,500...after the plumbing, drywall repair,tile, flooring it would end up being $11,000 range...not much of an improvement on $15,000
now a homeowner found one for $3,000 range...he ordered it and i will be installing it.....The brochure sounds great...its 200 lbs, is built on a stainless steel stand and is made in the USA...seems very well thought out and very easy to install.. If i team up with a remodeler and an electrician i can offer these in a complete package deal for around $6,500 range....now thats a significant savings and many seniors can afford $6500
my question is where is the best place locally to advertise??
magazines? newspapers? a billboard? back door of my van?
right now i dont know the quality of the tub, but i should be installing it next week....before i go forward with any advertising i want to call this customer back in 2-3 months to make sure it hasnt fallen apart. I may have them order it direct and lose the markup just to avoid the liability on the actual tub.
