Googled you
Word of Mouth recommendation

Just thought it would be interesting to see where the majority come from and what's worth doing and what's not. Just vote for where the majority come from!

Most of my ladies come from my freeindex ad. However, I am in the process of setting up my website so I expect a lot more from there, fingers crossed as am quiet at the mo.

Word of mouth!

I never advertise, but do have a facebook page and have had some new clients from that, but you can't beat word of mouth.

Website has always worked best for me, although I'm starting to get a few more from word of mouth now x

Interesting how the more traditional forms of advertising are simply not cutting it.

Anybody else?

I voted WOM but would definitely say Gumtree and Facebook are responsible for bookings :hug:

I get a lot from yell.com. I'm on the first page and apart from a salon I'm the first one with a web page.
On my site I have an admin bit were I can see where the link has come from and it's by far yell then google. Don't get anything from FB :(

So is Gumtree OK? I don't know why, must be things I've read in the past, but I've kinda got a feeling about it, like it might be a bit dodgy? Absolutely no idea why though.

It's works well for me, I just advertise my services at the standard price. No special offers and I also provide my website. That helps with the ranking :)

The majority of the time I am Googled and compared to other people/sites.

Recommendations are my second way of getting new clients, however they always Google me too after their friends have told them about me!
