Tips for promoting my business locally

I've recently started a plumbing business and am struggling with promoting my services locally. I've distributed some flyers but haven't got much of a response so far. What's the best way for me to reach out to potential clients?

    Answer: Yes, Google My Business is pretty much the answer, but I suggest getting on other similar platforms as well such as Bing Places for Business and Apple Maps Connect and not to forget all local business listing directories. You can also try advertising on Facebook and Instagram with campaigns targeted at local demographics and with minimum budget. Same with Google AdWords if you have the capacity. Would love to help more in details if you need :) Cheers!

    Answer: There are multiple ways to promote your business locally. Flyers are always a good idea but you have to do other things to make sure people can find you when they need help. Firstly, list yourself on Google My Business - it's free and you'll get listed on the search site when anyone's looking for a plumbing service online. Try to add as much information as possible so it's easy for people to contact you. Most people look for services online these days so it's also a good idea to set up a basic website. It doesn't have to cost much and it can really help in the long run. And if you can set up a newsletter every few months, it just helps stay in touch with clients and they know they can reach you anytime.
