I like to progress beyond this now and start growing the client base i have two clear goals one i like to educate myself in digital marketing take some classes earn some qualifications ( this can come in time but certainly looking to learn and educate myself as i go )t my primary aim is to grow the business online and offline in particular we are looking to increase our boiler installs . One of my questions is this, ill assume when people look for a local plumber they go to google and type plumber near me. Now we are listed in the top 3 for local plumbers in my area for the local search and map ( i know they randomise the search a bit ) but in general we are in there we been up and running about 4 weeks now and i not had a single email enquiry from google local business i had a couple of direct messages on our facebook business which has 250 followers again i know this inst a huge amount and we like to grow our members to a minimum of 1k in the next 3 months. The majority of our work apart from the obvious word of mouth comes from the paid search directories checkatrade.com and a couple from yell.com Is there anyone out there with direct knowledge of the UK Plumbing industry for residential who can help me our local tradesmen from the UK who could point me in the right direction.
I have a lot more questions but right now i think this gives a feel for where i am at and hopefully can generate some decent discussion on how i can progress
