Welcome to one of our regular series for new business starts ups. On weekly basis, we deal with a number of new business starting up and we get asked on a regular basis by the owners, how do they attract more customers/Trade.Since we deal with a number of building companies, we decided to look at Builders.
Online social media can be an effective way of marketing your business, staying in touch with previous customers and making contact with potential new ones. Think too about using relevant forums, but be aware that many forum websites ban blatant advertising in users’ posts. You could consider trying to obtain work through job-referral websites like Mybuilder.com and Rated People too.
Other ways of advertising
Your local news paper may run a regular ‘contact the experts’ advertising feature. Remember that your vehicle or car can be a very effective means of advertising if you have it sign-written and keep it clean and presentable. You might consider having a large sign to display outside places where you are working, and/or on scaffolding. Make sure though that your customer and other contractors have no objections before putting it up. Also be sure that it does not cause an obstruction or hazard.
Think about other ways of marketing and promoting your business. You could sponsor a local sports club or event, for example.
