We use Google Adwords and we’ve used pamphlets and all that kind of thing.
How do they compare to ServiceSeeking.com.au?
ServiceSeeking.com.au has been very good in comparison. There are a few things I’d change to make the site more user-friendly, but other than that it’s been good. It’s been winning us work, so we’re happy.
Any tips for new businesses?
It’s important to make sure you’ve got a good profile. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the number of leads emails coming in, so you have to spend some time going through them.
Based on the information he gave us in his interview, Gaby has won 10 new clients worth between $500 and $1500 each – a total of between $5,000 to $15,000. It would have cost $500 in credits to submit 100 quotes in the accounting category, making a return of anywhere between $10 and $30 for every dollar spent.
