Hi there! I hope 2011 is treating you well so far. Can you believe how fast January has flown by already? It seams like each year is flying by faster and faster. At least in our house, anyway. (With 2 small kids, 2 cats and a dog to keep us busy!)

Now on to the embarrassing part….embarrassing that I never thought of this before….

Well, I wanted to let you in on something. You may or may not know this but we have reached the time us carpet cleaners call the dreaded “slow” time. It’s cold out, it’s raining and having their carpets cleaned is usually the last thing on my clients minds. This year, however, I vowed to make the best use of a little extra time I may have by brainstorming on how I can make my “slow” time be a GREAT time for my best clients (i.e. YOU) to use my services.

So this is what I came up with: If you book your carpet cleaning in the next three months (February – April) all of my additional services such as upholstery cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, and carpet protection I’ll be discounting by HALF! I don’t mean to pat myself on the back but that IS pretty generous of me. : ) As an example, cleaning of a 7 ft sofa would usually run $112. With my “Slow Season Incentive” it would just be $56!

I also wanted to do something that would encourage you to spread the word about me. During the next 3 months I’m going to TRIPLE my referral rewards program! So for anyone that you send my way that ends up hiring me, I’ll send you $60 (normally $20) toward your next cleaning OR redeemable as cash. Your choice.

Wow, this is the first time I’m actually really excited about my “slow” season! And remember, if you can’t take advantage of these great incentives; be sure to forward this email to family and friends and get triple referral rewards!

Thanks for hearing me out and talk to you soon,

Your friendly neighborhood cleaner, Nick Cohen

P.S. If you’ve been putting off getting that sofa cleaned or adding carpet protection or tile cleaning, NOW is the time to get it for HALF off when you get your carpets cleaned!
