For now I suggested he get a customer base close to home, but sooner or later he will start showing up in other towns/cities...the site is only 1.5 months old, usually it can take up to 6 months to start showing up in other areas..
Social Media Efforts, Blogging & Flyers have done wonders for my biz..plus we are on the front pages of other areas. Like Woodbury, MN where he is... Depending on the scope of work calls we get for his area, we send em to him and vise versa..Otherwise if the work is too big for us we have another partner with triple the staff that can step in & handle the big-loads.
We share & work together as not to step on each others toes. We do realize the economy is in disarray, but we have plenty of work.
