  • What is your favorite form of marketing?

    My plan for starting out is door hangers and Craigslist and nextdoor and any other online local platforms. At some point soon I will want to get a website up. I'm also considering bandit signs and of course word of mouth combined with great svc. So what do you guys do and what would be your favorite/most effective method?

    Do you have a personal facebook page? Have you promoted your company on there yet? Then started a business facebook page? Once you find a specific area you want to target, getting door hangers out is great. As you get more customers, make sure you hand out those door hangers to surrounding properties after you finish your job. Also keep them in the truck to drop off as you drive around town and see over grown lawns,

      Tear off ads: zero.

      Facebook page: nada.

      Advertising in the local paper: zilch.

      I've never advertised in the yellow pages because who still looks at the yellow pages? No one.

      Lawn signs have netted one customer in 10 years.

      Business cards on bulletin boards have netted one customer in 10 years.

      The rest all came by word of mouth and my web page with the web page netting about 75%. I have a total of 327 customers added into Gopher so far. Not all still active but still shows that the web site is the way to go for advertising.
