    In todays market, if you can get the work done it should not be hard to grow. or if you can find the help you need.

    What is your trade.

    I think Hydroponics is the best way to grow in todays market, the way it is exploding.

    Generating business through referrals may be old school but it is very effective. Ask current customers to promote your business by sending you referrals. Reward them with a small token. It works well.

    almost all of our work comes through referrals or past customers. we do very little advertising.

    Today’s fastest way to get your company out there is with seo . Promoting your website with pages and link that help drive traffic to your site when clients search local contractors or towns . Putting adds in papers doesn’t work today .

    I tend to eat more and work less and I find that I am growing….bigger around that is.

    yah I find social media does spread your word faster than traditional means. People follow and check out work and pictures of what their friends like. its digital word of mouth with your work to speak for you.

    i can’t believe how big it is, there are positions people post for personal social media. For famous people they don’t even do their own, they hire it out. have this person follow you around on vacation and everything .

    I get calls every day trying to sell SEO. we still come out near the top of searches without them. I think they want a lot for what they offer. A good reputation and referrals go a long way. being active in the chamber of commerce and other organizations is money better spent IMO

    its the only way they can make money, they need their clients to connect to each other. so they have to aggressively pursue more contractors, as there is always an abundance of work to go around.

    I get regular calls form Home Advisor trying to sign me up. I tried it a long time ago, it was not worth it. I turn them down every time and they keep calling.
