i believe by doing top quality work at a fair price, will become your best way of advertising as word of mouth will spread like wildfire if you run an honest business. I strive to maintain my customers for life not just for one job by doing follow ups with all my customers as well.

Another important way of obtaining new customers is to target locally in a printed publication read by the residents such as the HOA newsletters. Social media is great but reaching residents on a commumity level in the subdivisions nearby could increase business and generate repeat business.

I think it is word-of-mouth, referrals and networking. Being visible in the community as a viable and contributing enterprise. Innovation could help, too. For example, taking over the maintenance requirements for new cars so owners don't feel they will make a mistake and not have a warranty. Keep them from going back to the higher-priced (and sometimes higher pressure) dealer. Also, offer a few "freebies" for regular customers. For example, my mechanic will replace a tail light bulb without charging me labor or for the part. Offer a record printout of the... (more)
