Marketing your business does not have to cost you a fortune there are some small things you can incorporate in your daily life that will help you get the word out there. Most tradespeople use a business vehicle to get to a job this has fantastic potential to market your business, every day. By adding personal vehicle signage to your vehicle (including details of your business name, type of work and contact details) not only does it look great, you are exposing your business to hundreds of road users neighbours and passers-by there is an initial cost of vehicle signage but it’s a one-off and should certainly pay for itself over time.
Another less costly way to get some professional business cards printed. Great to post to local shops, pass to existing clients for referring and get existing clients calling you again. Make sure the business card includes name, contact details and a little about what you do.
