Default How are you marketing your business?

What marketing channels are you using to promote your business? What do you find the most effective?

Examples
Directories
Yellow pages
Paid search
Word of mouth
Newspaper
Craigslist

Word of mouth. Our work speaks for itself.

I've been down the road with Craiglist(everyone wants for free), yellow pages(waste of money) and leads(people just want to shop around). Never had success with these in the past and have not used any for a few years.

Do you use social media to promote your business?

Very little... I should, but we are so busy I hardly have time. In the process of hiring more help so I can market for more business.

Good! Just keep it simple and try not to be on every social media site. Pick and choose the ones you already use and step up your game when time permits or when you get help.
