I used to promote using craiglist and used to get good business from there. I am not able to generate much leads anymore from there. I am looking for new ideas to market this business.

Any suggestions or ideas?

    Hi,

    Did you know there are over 4,000 pages devoted to "selling web design" in the search engine here?

    Try it and see. That's a great place to start, as your very same question has been asked THOUSANDS of times.

    Your welcome.

    Ron

      What you need to do is start finding businesses that are lacking and start from there. Then each client you have you can upsell.

      When I say lacking I mean:

      old sites,
      non mobile sites

      Then contact them and explain their pain points. When they buy the first product IE website design then upsell them on the app later

      Don't wait for them to come to you. You find them.

      I'm finishing up touches on a product detailing my process. I'll be releasing it here within weeks. Judging by your question it would be perfect for you.

    You must have to use sites with high and original traffic where you can get a lot of people. There are many high traffic sites available for this one.

    PBDollars,

    Set up a phone sales team and a support team ...

    Get a MOTO (mail order / telephone order) merchant account -- This has a virtual terminal for card-not-present and over-the-phone transactions ...

    Find new and small to medium Web hosting companies that are getting significant traffic and have a decent number of affiliates, especially ones that do not offer Web design, mobile and Web app development services ...

    Talk to them and their affiliates ...

    Tell them you'll give them toll free or national phone numbers that they can drive customer call traffic and support call traffic to, without any charge ...

    Tell them you'll sell their Web hosting packages for a commission to the customer call traffic that they send your way ...

    Tell them that you'll resolve the problems, issues and concerns of the tech support traffic that they send your way ...

    Tell them you'll upsell your Web design, mobile and Web app development services so as to provide value-added services to their new and existing customers; and

    Tell them for every successful upsale -- You'll give them a fixed commission ...

    To track traffic and sales -- Just give a different phone number to each Web hosting company or affiliate, and assign in your sales processing platform a specific order / invoice ID set for each Web hosting company and affiliate ...

    Otherwise -- Generate the call traffic on your own ...

    Or, you can do both ...
