  • What advertising gives you the best bang for the buck?

    I advertise almost exclusively by door hangers. It is what I started with and I have had good response so I never switched to another kind of advertising. I am just wondering if I am missing out on good avenues to drive customers to my services. What drives the best customers to your company?

          Also are you asking for referrals from your current customer base? Do you put door hangers or flyers at the neighboring houses of your current customers?

              Willshome, I love the sign. Very readable from a long distance. Short sweet and to the point.

                As of right now this is my main source of customers. Referrals are increasing and I am getting a lot of response to targeted flyers stating I maintain a neighbor's lawn with an address and the day I cut.

                  It looks like my next step is a SEO Website. I tend to be a little old school and I don't know a lot about advertising on the web but a little research is in order.

                    seo just takes time here is a list I made of places to list your website (this will make backlinks and help your rank.) just a warning they will try to sell you a upgraded listing JUST GET THE FREE BASIC LISTING

                    BTW do you have a website? If not try ipage.com cheese2009 and I use them
                    The only money I would spend online is with google adwords

                      Web sites by far are the best bang for your buck. If you hire someone to do the site, that is a one time cost. Then you should be well under $50 a year for hosting and every thing. Don't go with the cheapest host either and btw Godaddy sucks for hosting. Get your domain at namecheap.com and then hosting elsewhere.

                        i advise running your own nameserver and your own host overall. avoid paying anything.

                        nameserver is all godaddy and the rest of those registration companies are.

                          I may have to switch my domain registrar from godaddy. namecheap.com looks good. Thanks for the tip. I have a bunch of domains and as long as they have similar maintenance tools then I'd save a bunch every year.

                          I've never used godaddy for hosting so I can't comment on that.
