Hello and welcome to the forum. Personally I find Gumtree is brilliant (strange I know!) and Facebook is rubbish. It definitely pays to be on all the free listing directories like this one and to provide original and interesting content on your website or social media, so that people start to know and trust you. Maybe tips on car maintenance, or whatever is relevant to your service.

Thanks for the info I've not had any luck on Facebook at all will give gumtree a go and see how that works out.

I guess you need to think about who your ideal customer is and then work out where they are! Sometimes it's a bit of trial and error.

The age old question, if only it could be solved with a silver bullet!

As always, it depends on market, demographics, product, location, budget and myriad of other factors. I'm actually a fan of Facebook and think it works well for business, but it doesn't suit everyone.

Cast a wide net, digital marketing can be the most cost effective, so a decent optimised website with plenty of fresh content backed up with an active social media campaign. But a lot of businesses thrive on doorstep leaflet campaigns and cards in shop windows.  But above all, marketing is a cost, so it needs a budget. The bigger the budget, the more options become available. 

Hopefully our Sales and Marketing section will give you a starter for 10, but feel free to pose any questions and learn from our mistakes
