Marketing can be a wonderful thing. It allows businesses to communicate offers, services, and other important information to current and potential customers. The problem is, bad marketing makes it increasingly difficult for buyers to recognize bogus deals.
False promises have become commonplace throughout all media channels including online, print, and television. A prevalent example of a questionable marketing practice in the plumbing industry is what’s come to be known as “Any Drain $99” ads.
Chances are good that you’ve come across a few of these ads yourself or have even fallen prey to the allure of a home drain cleaning for only $99. But, are these ads really too good to be true?
In a word … yes.
As a matter of fact, there are numerous plumbing companies currently facing some serious accusations by their state attorney generals. After some investigation, these companies aren’t able to produce any invoices that they have provided this service for the advertised price.
Allegedly, companies are offering to clean “any drain for $99,” but after the drains are scoped, they tend to find a “problem,” and then charge their customers additional fees.
