Justin, I am going to make a suggestion.  Please consider taking those dog pics off your facebook page.  Everyone knows what a dog looks like when pooping.  Obviously there is a humorous side to our biz.  But you really want to be taken seriously too. 

Your facebook page should really promote your biz.  It should be like an extension or a preview of your website.  It should definitely have your logo and anything else that brands your business.  Do a search on facebook for some scoopers pages and you'll see a lot of them.


It could be just my opinion only.  So I am curious to hear what others have to say about it.

I agree with that.  I didn't like those much.

Good point.  Remember that your potential customers are the kind of people who are so grossed out by dog poop that they are willing to pay someone to take it away.  They don't want to see that.

On our FB page you can see we are using it a lot right now to promote our fundraiser "Donate a $1.00 to the dogs." We also use it to let people know we are going to be closed or anything else that has to do with The Doo House. Best advice I can give is keep it simple.

Just a word to people, be careful and check local, state and Federal laws.

Where I live, I wanted to run a food drive.  Just advertise, pick up food, and take it
to the local animal shelter.  That's all.  My dime, my time, no income or profit whatsoever.

I spoke to the Sec. of State's office and the State attorney, and to do it "properly"
I would have had to set up a completely separate charitable organization, complete with
periodic reports, filings, fees, separate tax id (and tax returns!), etc.

Wasn't worth it.

Edit: if the Gov't would stay out of the way a little more, it would be a better world.

I agree with your suggestions. I think this is much better. I also picked up a new client via a flyer that someone saw at a local vet

I am glad that SFLScooper siad what he did.  I visited your FB page the other day and did not like it so I did not "Like it"  I also did not care for the pictures at all.  I just revisited your FB page and liked it, so I hit the "Like it" button!  It looks much better!
