I got a customer from my Web site!!!

No joke, they said they found it via Yahoo and Landscaping...
Thou when I tried it I had to enter more info, but it does list...
I entered this listing back around February, that's pretty cool.
And ok, upon further checking it's not the website but just the listing...
I can't edit the title now but it's a Yahoo local listing.

If you have a Yahoo account, see about entering a Local listing, it's free!
If you do not have a Yahoo account, get one lol

If you already have an account, sign in here:
http://login.yahoo.com/config/login?...o.com&.src=lcl

Once signed in, at the VERY bottom is a link:
Add/Edit a Business
Go there, follow instructions.

Nothing better than cheap advertising... The best one I've gotten so far was when I sold a >$9K pond job from my site. got quite a few $200-2K jobs too from mine.

I set up a free website and I have 2 or 3 new customers that found me online, sent me an email and I emailed them estimates and got the jobs, never met the people once but I service their properties and get paid.

thats the other thing I love. all my new customers are emailed every estimate or invoice as PDF. I snail-mail at most 6 invoices per month now. I'm looking at accepting payments online in the near future too.

it's all about optimizing your site so you get ranked in the search engines. I had my site up for about 3 weeks and had a few hits from people doing msn searches. It's a pretty good feeling....the best way to making it to the first page of a search is link exchange. Find sites that have a high google ranking and ask them to setup a link to your site. Of course in return you will have to link to their site but it's worth it to climb up in the search engines.
