How to Get Customers For Your Painting and Decorating Business

Generally there is no magic to getting good customers who want the work done and who are happy to pay.

No magic in any way. dublin

But there’s a right service it and a way to make a mess of it here – as normal.

Here’s what you should do:

– Have a quality handout or flyer which will get people to contact you asking for a quotation. I have an example of a hazard which will work well for you. It is in my manual ‘How to set up and successfully run a piece of art and decorating business’. Every you have to do is to insert your details in the appropriate places and get it printed off or produce it yourself over a computer printer. Alternatively, have one good copy and go to your local photocopy shop. You should be able to get 1000 published off for less than? 25. 00. Not a bad deal at all. Your first job should pay for this easily. 

– Get it given away reliably and the right areas. By ‘To the right areas’ I imply through the letterboxes of houses where people live who actually have the bucks to pay for your services. These individuals will be: homeowners, During working hours, Living on streets where other homeowners like to care for their properties.

– Place an advertisement in your local Thompson’s directory. It’s local, it gets read, and should get you business. You should be prepared to pay about? 150 -? 2 hundred. 00 for a basic container ad. You can check this out with your local Thompson’s Representative. Is actually also a lot less expensive than Yellow Pages (where your advertisement may get ‘drowned’ by all the others) and in my opinion, proportionately less expensive for money.

– In time, you can certainly get a tiny website which stimulates your services and includes pictures of work you have completed, contact details and so forth

– When people respond to your flyer, or your advertisement make certain they get a good response from you or the person who answers the telephone. Complimentary is important. Take worry to get their: Cell phone number, Address, Full name, and establish a time to see them which you will of course note down and do it again returning to them so you know you have got it right.

– When folks call you to ask you for a quotation, schedule and appointment to see them within 48 hours. You want to appear interested, but not desperate. (Even if you are desperate! ).
