Sorry no tips etc in this blog but just wanted to see if all small companies find it quieter in the school holidays. Mainly just the half terms as well rather than the school holidays.
I'm guessing as a locksmith that due to a lot of people going away all in the same week that there is generally less people about who could get locked out or lose their keys.
I always find myself with more free time during the school half terms and keep trying to think of ways to keep the work coming in during that time.
Advertising could help, but that costs money, blogging and social media always helps but think there is still something out there that I'm missing.
After A.R locksmiths first full year self employed and not getting any work from any National locksmith firms, it has been a good year but we have also learnt a lot along the way. Knowing where and when to advertise has been one of the main things. Trying to get my good name around, getting as many people as possible to recommend me. I have tried to keep the costs down as much as possible and trying to do most of it myself.
Being a member of checkatrade has helped and using Google adwords has been good. I also advertise in the Local ad magazines, which is good as I know the magazines are going to all the local people around the Maldon/Chelmsford area and plus I am also helping another local company in Maldon.
A.R Locksmiths are a small local locksmith in Maldon and our labour rates are very reasonable, I would say the lowest in the area and also our parts prices are low.
