Emma it takes time - be patient! It really does take a while for people to start coming but it will happen, trust me :)

I got very despondent in the first month or so but the business is picking up. I never thought that yell.com would yield any business for me but hey i got a call the other night from someone who'd looked for someone in their area and came that evening to have a full set of fibreglass! Patience is the key!!

Hi i definately agree with Carole its definately patience that is needed ive been trying to build a clientele for nearly a year even though i lacked confidence and so limited my advertising at first but even now i am still waiting it is slowly but surely starting to pick up but what more can you do apart from shouting from the roof tops lol! i guess you can just keep persisting with your advertising im sure eventually we will all be saying how busy we are (well i do have a tendancy to dream lol!) x x

Have you asked your local schools to give out your flyers to the children for the mums? also if the school is having a fate give a free manicure or full set as a rafle prize, that will give you loads of free advertising and the mums will see what you can do...!!

Yeah i was gonna mention about schools etc. but they've all broken up around our way and assumed they would everywhere else and they've all had their fetes. Maybe in September that would be a good time to contact schools and see if they have any thoughts about doing things like ladies indulgence evenings.
