Where can I advertise my service?

10 replies
Hi,

I'd like to offer a CV (Resume) Writing service to people. The target people are earning good salaries already and who want to get a better job.

I'm in the UK and I'd like to concentrate there, for now.

I'd be grateful for ideas about where I can advertise my service, both free and paid.

All ideas welcome!

Many thanks.

John

    Have a professional website is the first thing (maybe you already have).

    I would highly recommend you to advertise on classified (craigslist, backpage or your local classiefied section) Now you can set up your own ways to blast ads succesfully or simply safe yourself the hasstle and outsource this stuff.

    An craigslist ad will cost you about $1 per ad. Backpage is about $0.10 per ad. Find these on odesk or freelancer.

    If you only want to focus on the uk you can either post on your local most populair classiefied adds website manualy. (BTW could you tell me what site that is? I'm very curious.)

    Or go offline and post flyers (High quality designs can be outsourced for 5 bucks) on strategic places where business people get around.

    If you want to stay online I think that PPC is your best option but be ready to invest. Know that happy customers recommend you and will return for more business so see it as a investment in your business.

      I've never found an online classified ad site in the uk that is any good.

    There is no better idea than to SEO your web site with the CV/Resume keywords, but being in the UK, it would be better if your domain has the co.uk instead of the dot com one.
