Do you have a facebook page that you regularly post on? I am keen to get some metrics on the success rate of this form of advertising. To make it simple if you could select the percentage of requests you get that lead on to an actual job please

I find they all want the work done for nothing and are getting about 8 quotes.

I only use my Facebook for a portfolio as you know.

I’ve probably had about 5 jobs from Facebook at most.

Tried it and you generally get people wanting the cheapest work possible so I don’t bother anymore. If you look at your local community pages the posts asking for trades recommendations are generally along the lines of looking for a cheap option.
Checkatrade brings in decent enquiries for work for me.

I've heard good things about FB market place.

I've sold a lot of stuff on facebook market place but you have to deal with a massive amount of time wasters and stupid questions.

Been using FB market place recently and just seems to be full of time wasters, along with people who cant be arsed reading the add and people insulting me with pathetic offers, i would say one sale out of 40 enquireys is about the norm,
