When you're looking to promote your business, but surrounded by the challenges of presenting your business online. Finding out how to do this on your own can be difficult. In todays gardening marketplace, word of mouth and quality of service a still key in obtaining new business. But what happens when word of mouth becomes solely based on online reviews, likes and search results.
Andrew Thomas is looking to lead the way with his ambition to deliver professional garden and property maintenance service. With a mission to ensure that he is bringing a qualified and professional service in an industry where qualifications are not necessarily sought or door knockers prosper.
Andrews challenge was to set up and reflect his purpose and offerings on Facebook that would invite new followers and provide simple access to getting in touch. In order to keep ahead of the competition but also to give an outlet to showcase his efforts and masterpieces.
Andrew got in touch with us through our call out for local businesses to take advantage of our pledge to support local business at affordable and realistic levels. In addition we also spent time with Andrew to help align his services to a defined purpose which will enable him to attract the interest of those in need of gardening and maintenance services in the Broadstone area.
Andrew is a Gardners Guild qualified professional gardner who covers the Broadstone, Corfe Mullen and Wimborne areas. He can be found on Facebook @broadstonegardener
"I meet Scott at a recent Broadstone networking event where I had the opportunity to tell him about my garden and property maintenance business. During our conversation Scott advised me of the benefits of marketing my services through Facebook and subsequently guided me through the process of building a business page. Scott showed great patience and common sense whilst affording me the benefit of his commercial knowledge and expertise. Thanks Scott, top effort !!" - Andrew Thomas
