Hi, I started a local computer service business and would like to know some advertising stratgies that fits this type of work.
Basic company info:
Opened in March `07
retail front 1,400 sqft, strip mall (next to safeway), good neighborhood
1 full time and 2 part time employees
service any type of pc problems, onsite
2 monthly IT supports as of 01/08 (fixed monthly income)
The company is breaking even now and I would like to start investing some money in advertising to help it grow. I currently rely on word of mouth mainly in addition to free advertising:
In the past we have tried coupons, email listings, handing out flyers, trade shows. The outcomes weren`t great but was enough to recover the original cost. I am wondering what are some marketing/advertising ways to expand a computer service business? You can PM me and I will send you a URL of our website if you are interested in more details, thanks in advance!
