Get Customers For Your Painting and Decorating Services in Glencoe
To have a suuceesful business in painting and decorating services in Glencoe there are tips to follow to make it possible. Have a quality handout or flyer which will get people to contact you asking for a quotation. All you have to do is to insert your details in the appropriate places and get it printed off or print it yourself on a computer printer. Alternatively, get one good copy and go to your local photocopy shop.
Place an advertisement in your local Thompson’s directory. It’s local, it gets read, and should get you business. You should expect to pay about £150 - £200.00 for a simple box ad. You can check this out with your local Thompson’s Representative. It’s also a lot cheaper than Yellow Pages (where your advertisement may get ‘drowned’ by all the others) and in my opinion, proportionately better value for money.
In time, you can easily get a small website which promotes your services and contains pictures of work you have completed, contact details etc.
When people respond to your flyer, or your advertisement make certain they get a good response from you or whoever answers the telephone. Courtesy is important. Take care to get their: Telephone number, Address, Full name, and establish a time to see them which you will of course note down and repeat back to them so you know you’ve got it right.
When people call you to ask you for a quotation, make an appointment to see them within 48 hours. You want to appear interested, but not desperate.
