Many domestic electricians say they struggle to find time to fit in any kind of marketing for their business. The problem is, without any kind of marketing, your electrical business will struggle to grow and lack of marketing results in an empty diary or sitting at home worrying about whether the bills will be paid that month.
As a business owner, you will get asked how business is going quite often by friends, family and even other parents at the school gate. The truth of the matter is, it is very unlikely that you would answer this question truthfully if business was not so good. If you are stuck in a rut, it is difficult to ask anyone to help – all you want is for an email or phone call about some work.
One of the biggest challenges faced amongst self employed electricians is finding work and keeping busy. If you're struggling to find work, it can seem like an uphill struggle everyday wondering where the next job is coming from. It is no fun looking at an empty diary and wondering why the phone isn't ringing.
