business via websites?

Recommended Posts

Any of you peep's out have websites and if you do any idea if they actually lead to any phonecalls of the type - "hi, I saw your website can you come around and give me a quote?"

or is it yellow pages , local paper ads, and word of mouth that generates all the work?

yeah...i found yellow pages was no good for me....and seemed to get a lot of time wasters....word of mouth is the best way...do a good job....priced corectly and make sure u clean up well (very important) and you will always have work....you will be surprised at the amount of people that will come and see you on a job and say "that looks nice...can you come and give me a quote..." i also think parish magazines are good, they are local and cheap.... but always remember word of mouth and recomendations:icon14:

I find that putting the village or town where you are based on your ad gets you a lot of very local work.

 

The website seems to be a secondary, they see your ad in the yellow or tompsons and go to your website to check you out, then contact you from there.

I've got a website but people just tend to go there for reference, as I list my web address in all my printed ads. Think I've only had 2 or 3 jobs that have come directly from the net, i.e. a google search throwing up my website.
