I am helping to run a roofing company based in Glasgow. The owner is currently just keeping himself busy doing small repairs for domestic customers, letting agents and factors. This keeps him ticking over but there are plenty of periods where hehas nothing to do. We need to try and take the business to the next level and get some larger jobs in. In terms of cash-flow he is running month to month so we don't have budget available for mainstream advertising in the newpapers or big web-sites. The business has only been advertised on small classfied sites like gumtree so far, with quite a good response. In order to try and build a pipe-line of larger work I was thinking of offering to do a full re-roof on domestic property for a reasonable fixed labour price of about £1500. The home owner would order the materials themselves with our guidance and trade discount where available. Of course if they didn't want the hassle we would do that, but I want to offer it for transparency. I think this represents a great deal for the customer and it would hopefully allow us to get a small queue of work to help get a more consistent income. Interested in folks view on this - good idea or bad idea? And also given that we don't have a great deal of cash available for advertising at the moment - how would we best advertise something like this?
