Aim Your Way

So I get a call from Texas yesterday, lady says shes from Aim Your Way and wanted to know if I was interested in doing winterizations. Of course I wasn't interested but I said "Humor me, what are you paying" She said $60 and I just laughed and hung up. 30 seconds later she calls back and starts rambling please don't hang up! I know $60 is low but this is how we do it, give me a number that works for you, I said we are so far off lady I don't think you want to even hear my number, she says what do you want? I said $350, she yells "$350 FOR A WINTERIZATION, ARE YOU CRAZY???" I tell her that's what I charge and have plenty of direct work everyday. Then I yelled back, "STOP ****ING RIPPING PEOPLE OFF" and just hung up. So today I get a call from the same number! I answered and before she said anything I said "ARE YOU REALLY CALLING ME AGAIN FOR $60 WINTERIZATIONS?? TAKE ME OFF OF YOUR LIST" Click. 30 seconds later, you guessed it! I answer and again she starts yelling "DON'T HANG UP I GOT YOUR $350 APPROVED" I said no thanks. I think her ****ing head exploded!! She starts yelling what is wrong with you!!!??? Tells me I would make SO MUCH MORE MONEY if I would just work with them. I laughed and told her that I am no small fish and probably make more money then AIM and the company she works for are a bunch of scum bag middle feeders and there is no way they would actually pay me all of my money, I'm sure they would find ways to charge back or deny invoices. Then I reminded her that I only work direct and to find some other sucker.
What's really sad is most of the newbies would be jumping all over this deal, then coming here around March crying about how they are owed $5,000 from AIM!! Of course most of them here think $350 winterizations are a myth and half would probably agree to the $60 and the other half would counter with $150 or less and think they are getting over on AIM when they agree to your counter. But in the end, if your dealing with middle men, you will always get ripped off! That's my tip of the day!

That's an awesome story, negotiated a price where they would pay it but I think they were just setting you up for a charge back, nice decision IMO.

A National's Guidelines For Pricing And Profit
Chapter 11 "Bid Modifications and Invoice Adjustments".
Sub chapter C "Closing The Deal"
Page 195

National- "Can you do this trashout for $700?"
Sub-"We'll take a look."
Sub-"Heck no. That place is awful. Bid to clear it out is $3200."
National-"Ok, you are approved. Please complete RUSH."
(Blast Sub's email "Please complete RUSH" until photos and data are received. At that point, discontinue all correspondence related to that work order. Classify pertinent staff as unavailable.)

At or near the expiration of sub's lien rights, present email notice 4-dd82j2
"photos do not justify the amount invoiced and has been adjusted to X."

Note-Forward to recruiting to post for new hires asap.

LOL>. i told her i been to the safe****guard meetings and there was maybe a 1000 or so vendors. so you to say 40,000 is ****ing funny.. they are shaddy i never did get paid for the work i did, I did the 10$ drive by inspections that were near my shop or home, after 20 mins on there site I said NOPE. im done wasnt worth a single min.

You missed the entire point of my post, but at the same time confirmed my point!
Of course you would have jumped all over the $350 wints but AIM would have NEVER paid you for them!! Then you would come here crying about how you were ripped off!

That's the point I was trying to make.

I had to read bigdaddy's original post 3 times just to make sure I didn't miss something, and I didn't see anything about you, or anyone else, being a bottom feeder. He was referring to noobs, and the crappy middle succubus that would prey on them. I don't tend to jump into fights like this, but "you way off base" on this one.
