Popcorn Ceiling Removal Advertising? Where? How?


I am looking for options on growing my personal Business. I specialize in Popcorn texture ceiling removal, Drywall tapping, mudding & repairs. Interior Painting and Carpet Shampoo Cleaning. So far I have been getting my work from word of mouth. Typically, I do a job then they tell their friend who contacts me, and so on and so on. Without these customers informing their friends & neighbors I'm non existent in the industry. What's a good starting point to get my business on the map as they say.

You could do well in rental turnovers. Get a pricing sheet put together and fax it to every management company in your area.

You need to be razor tight on price and make money on volume.

Sounds like you already have. I have never advertised except for having my business name, what we do, and my phone number on my work trailer. I couldn't tell you how many people, customers and other trades people, say "I see you around here all the time" or "I've seen working at so and so's house for a while now!". It gives me a presence in some really nice areas so people feel comfortable with me before they even call me.
I also get a lot of business from the paint store and from my sales rep at my millwork supplier.

Post ads on craigslist

ad your self to local Facebook groups and post ads in there. The local yard sale and buy sell trade groups are perfect for this.

Knock on doors around the house you just finished working on.

Flyer neighborhoods

run paid ads through a funnel

It all depends on your budget and how much work you can handle.
