I like working on ours, proud to show our recent work but it is just a shop window in reality, backup to the web site.

Most enquiries are via Google then Solocal (Yellow pages online)

 90%+ of our work is local French within 30km of base.

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.

Same. Think I've had 2 jobs in 3/4 years

Not sure I get many new enquiries but I think it's important to be on FB as people contact me on the messenger app. Mobile signal is crap in the village so a lot of people using FB messenger before WhatsApp became popular. It is also my shop window as said above.

I cant think of anyone that would trawl through facebook looking for a tradesman :dontknow:



It's used a lot for recommendations.. The local I love "my village" groups.  I did sign up to a bunch of local groups for a while in an attempt to get in the mix but the majority seemed to be low end work and I got bored with trawling through the other posts..

I live in a rural area of Mid Wales and my Facebook page is promoted as though it is my webpage. I use it as a way of showing the range of services that I do.... It is time hungry and you do need to keep posting, Sharing, getting people to like  and follow..... Adds do work but because I am so rural it often targets a wider area audience than I want.


This in my main grounds maintenance business page:

I have just started a new sub business page that targets a specific customer base:

But you can't beat word of mouth.

I've found that having a facebook/twitter/instagram account that is affiliated with your website, adds to the 'authenticity' of the site when it's being ranked by search engines.
