(probably because I quote too low wanting the jobs as I'm starting 🤦‍♂️)

Don't do it.  It's hard to put your prices up once people think you're cheap. And think if the other businesses who can't compete. Not good for our industry these low prices. 

 

But bark is full of pikeys so guess you have to compete. Got off it a while back. Only use mybuilder now and Steve made me a nice website which I have a add word campaign on. 

 

Normally do around 6 quotes a week. Done 12-15 a week the last 3. Things are growing and as mark said people are out in the garden in the sun so they think about it more. Sundays and Mondays have the most coming through the website.

Not really, a basic brochure site built on something like WordPress is a pretty standard thing (especially if all content in provided). It doesn't really matter how many pages there are going to be, it's all about the structure. 

 

Anyway, I'm derailing the thread, sorry.

Don't do it.  

I 100% agree and it's more of a mindset thing. I guess in my mind on a very bad day in my previous job I would make £160 so as long as I can make at least that in profit then it's okay but like you say, it's bad for me and it's bad for business and I will only be the destroyer of incomes for myself and other businesses. 

 

I need to get into the local parish Facebook pages and advertise on there. Someone posted up asking for someone and some clients recommended me which turned into 4 jobs from a couple of comments so it's obviously a good route. 

 

I get a few "organic" enquiries from my website, I'd estimate 3 a week. It looks smart but it also looks sterile. Because I work for myself I don't have people who are good with a camera to take nice photos so a lot of my photos are stock ones that look rather "industrial" I guess. 

I might get @Steve Bullman to look at it. I'm rather focused on not spending out money after buying a new van, chipper and new kit that was needed but you need to spend money to make it and I would like a more personal touch to it!

If you have any specific questions start a thread. I'd be happy to explain.
