Advertising Advice


Where do all of you professional residential painters get their leads? I have been painting for a very long time, but now with my own company I'm struggling to decide where to focus my money on advertising. I just recently made a website, and if you have a moment check it out and throw me some advice.

Advertising Advice


If there were an easy answer we'd all be rich and none of our contemporaries would go out of business unless the retired

I can tell you it's different for everyone, and some things that work better for some, may not work at all for others

One of the biggest/best pieces of advise I can give you, is never forget you own a business
As a business owner, you have to have your marketing dept. (you) decide on you target market (just like any other business)
Once you determine your target customer, then it's easier to try and focus your advertising dollars
You may have to spend a fair amount on things that don't work well to find the things that do
Might as well spend it focused on your best (potential) customers

I do not know if you have posted this question over at the other Pro forums (that are connected with this site).

But here are the links, just in case.

You will get more professional responses from these links, as the DIY Chatroom is more home owner and DIYer populated.
