    Hi all,

    We have succesfully established our Specialist uVPC cleaning business(Domestic) in Preston(PR1 - PR5) and are now expanding into Chorley, Euxton, Tarleton, Southport and into Merseyside.
    We have been fortunate that the majority of our work has been referral based in Preston so already have a nice number of customers in the areas above..but...we want more! The referrals will grow but short term, I'd like to look at all avenues.
    Apart from hotfooting it around our customer base with leaflets, we have advertised in Parish Council Newsletters (which is cheap and a good take up) and the usual Yellow pages, Google.

    Any ideas or things you have found work for you would be greatly appreciated?

    Many thanks,

    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    I have recently setup an advertising magazine aimed for the Ormskirk area, you can have a free advert on the website and free quarter page ad in the magazines first issue if you like?

    Hi Paul

    I am unable to offer anything for free I am afraid but if you want to go down the route of large format bus advertising, to compliment your existing media coverage, in the areas you have mentioned please feel free to drop me a line. If you have any doubts about the effectiveness of large format bus advertising check out the testimonials page on the PSV Media website.

    Hi Paul

    Its good to hear that you are expanding into new areas. Good Luck with it. However, If you do need to continue your presence in Preston and advertise locally in Fulwood, Preston or surrounding areas then visit our website jampublications.co.uk.

    There is also a lot of free info on the different things to consider when marketing your business if your interested in that sort of thing. Check it out - and visit it again in a couple of weeks as we are just about to have a relook at the site, so if you have any ideas at what else we could add to it to help other businesses get more from local advertising in Preston then let us know.

    Cheers John

    The Champion and/or midweek Visiter local papers are probably the best places to advertise or have a flyer in as they are free papers and get delivered to every house in Southport.
