    Thought id pop along and say hello as need to spread those marketing wings ive been told!

    We're currently in the process of setting up a domiciliary care company in Orpington from scratch so its a mad cycle of marketing, policies, finding carers, finding training for them - and also finding customers!

    Luckily i have a partner whose done this all before and seems rather calmer than me - im just seeing the company bank account empty :)

    Very much so!!

    Luckily my partner has the experience that (fingers crossed!!) will make it work. Def want to do this with provision of quality care, and looking after our staff as the motivator, as that will make us stand out and with it bring our financial stability.

    Always concerned about businesses that only display a mobile telephone number. On the plus side, you do include your address :)

    I agree totally re mobile number, but just sorting office at present so no landline yet :(

    Could put home number on saying that as we're home working on it all pretty much 24/7!

    To be honest with VOIP phone numbers, it's all pretty meaningless these days.

    Wish you well anyway. ☺

    I bought an Armstrong-Siddley in Orpington and I still have the damn thing.

    And that's the sort of reason I'm here for!!

    Good call on VoIP. Might look into that rather than a fixed line.

    Cheers!!
