    INTRO Think I've hit the slow lane!

    I need help with a lot of things! I definitely wouldn't knock back an offer for help. I have engaged a developer who is in the processing of quoting the system. On top of this, I have looked at getting the website completed through Upwork also - gauging interest to see what sort of price...

    INTRO Think I've hit the slow lane!

    2 Months on. Wow. Time has flown. Ok, so a lot has been happening. I have been trying to help the partner build her business more, unfortunately she has aggravated a pre-existing shoulder injury. It has meant that there has been more down time than days filled with clients. At the end of the...

    NOTABLE! What book are you reading? Right now. Post up!

    Reading Cashvertising by Drew Eric Whitman. Finding this extremely informative and I am only 20% into the book. It's definitely changing my thought process on marketing to target markets. Listening to Platform Revolution. So far so good. Only an half hour into the book but it seems like...

    Is PPC a must?

    Didn't even think of that. Will start a new account based on the targeted customer and try that. I have considered joining up to one of these PPC analysis companies just for a 2-3 month stint to get the initial information I need out of it.

    Is PPC a must?

    I believe 2/3 could be appropriate to the business. It is the transport industry. I have finally had the time to do some more in depth research and as @GoodluckChuck has said, the PPC analysis service I used wasn't very accurate. Probably holding back information because it was a free service...

    Is PPC a must?

    Ok, this makes sense. Can you elaborate on what you would call low cost methods? Since the business is based around connecting customers with service providers, the acquisition is almost two fold for what I need to achieve. For service providers, I think cold calling, emailing, trade shows and...

    INTRO Think I've hit the slow lane!

    Alright, so a bit of an update of where I am at. The last couple of weeks has been pretty damn busy, and super hard to follow my routine of the early morning get ups. I've been managing to continue to read of a night most nights and also listen to audiobooks (TMF is now back on for 2nd time...

    Appreciate the feedback. Local. Professional. Quality was something I honestly thought of on the fly, I have re-read that over and over - it doesn't give away any information as to what we are about. I have made a minor update but will change this after some more thought. I think our problem...

"We are not only offering a quality cleaning service that is dedicated to removing the dirt, but also removing the...
