I have a location at a church where in currently working with clients so I have that covered for the tkme being.
I work with small businesses and have seen many approaches to 'growing' businesses. I've been doing it for 25 years. Most of the successful small
businesses I've worked with (and gotten paid regularly by) operate on old fashioned word of mouth advertising (as do I). It does take time and
consistency - but I've yet to see it fail when backed with good and reliable service.
The businesses that go in for all the marketing, and social networking, don't have the long term clientele that is necessary for solid return business
- the owners seem to be jumping from one 'inquiry' to another without taking care of their customers needs.
It takes a lot of capital (and time) to mount a cost-effective online campaign and most businesses don't have either the funds or the expertise to do
Personally I think it's a money pit and not worth your time.
As in all things, your mileage may vary.
Be patient, be dependable, be consistent and you'll be raising your rate and turning away clients before you know it. Show up and work - don't worry
