Re: How do you attract customers just starting out?

Tagging a few sellers off the top of my head who might be able to give some helpful tips:

 

There's some existing threads in the Community where other sellers asked the same thing and there was more engagement but I can't find them for the life of me.

 

Here's this Town Square article about driving sales that might help as well!

Re: How do you attract customers just starting out?

Home Advisor. I used them exclusively and built my business. You can look at their map and add zipcodes you want. I would pay 16-35 dollars per lead but just add extra in your cost. Make sure you use the feature where you can shut off the leads coming in ...and then turn them on when your ready, because if  it is left on they could flood you with business and you pay for each lead. This feature is ONLY on the laptop or home computer it is not available for cell phone of any type.

If you are out in the field 20 miles out their will be no way to shut them off. I take a couple then shut it off to see if they produce etc...also get a website and they will tie it into your account...people need to see this just for legitimacy. And if you have the website you will get more traffic without Home Advisor as they are getting your website ranked higher all the time to where I have had home advisor turned off for 10 months now cause my site is still ranking and plus they helped me build  my client list..... Good Luck

Sorry one more thing. My website I built for free, its a little cheesy and not finished but works to show customers that i exist.  Make sure it is made with Word Press because wix and all the others do not rank as high or are as compatible with Google as WordPress. My neighbor builds websites and does logos and advertising and told me this.

Good Luck

Re: How do you attract customers just starting out?

You may want to start by re-designing your landing (Home) page to something more appealing to the eye.  This is the first page customers will see.  Your current page consist of of 'contact us' form, and nothing eye catching to make me want to explore the rest of your site.
