“I love what Yodle has done for my company. It's definitely worth the investment.”
- Leo Guarente
Leo Guarente, Founder of Junk Depot, says his Massachusetts-based junk removal company has grown since partnering with Yodle. Junk Depot now receives 15-20 jobs per month and has been featured on the Today Show.
My name is Leo Guarente, I own Junk Depot, it's a junk removal company. We clean up basements, attics, cellars, whatever you need, we take all your junk away.
Every day is a new adventure on this job. We go into people's basements, they have stuff for 50 years, we rummage through it and throw it out. If there's good stuff, we keep it and sell it on craigslist. Everyone says they hate their job, I love my job. I love going to work every single day.
A friend of mine was in the business so I learned the ropes from him and I decided to buy my own truck and I started with one truck and now I have six.
When I first started, marketing was my biggest challenge. I couldn't be on TV, it was too expensive. I couldn't do radio, it was too expensive. The best alternative for me was online marketing.
About a year ago, I choose Yodle to be my online marketing partner. One of their marketing guys called me and said they could definitely increase my business so I said, "Hey, you know what let me give them a shot." He sent me over a bunch of emails and I checked out testimonials of other people and I said, "Hey, this could work for my company."
They set up a website for me, they set up their own phone number for tracking calls and shortly after that I got a bunch of calls and it's been awesome. Thanks to online advertising, we got a job the other day and we found $114,000 in savings bonds and we called the customer up and said, "Hey, we found something good for you" and she said no, she didn't want it but called her up, we returned it and it was $114,000 that she didn't know she had. Her mom never told her about it and they were just going to be thrown away and gone to the dump. Thank God we found them and saved them.
“I trust Yodle to do my online marketing and, by golly, they do it.”
“Let Yodle take you on as a client and they'll do good work for you.”
“The benefits of being able to easily upload photos and get reviews through Yodle has been astronomical.”
Leo Guarente of Junk Depot receives about 15 to 20 new jobs a month with Yodle, allowing his small business to compete with the big guys.
