Hi there

Well got my Niceic approval this week for domestic jobs - just need some work now ! I decided to go self employed in November after my company decided to stop paying wages due & were messing us all about BUT it has taken until now to get my assement done so I havent done any advertising yet until I could start using their logo etc.

Any advice would be appreciated on best way to get work & advertise.

I need some business cards & flyers - any tips on where best to get them sorted - would also need a design.

Should I put adverts in local post office/paper or post flyers through doors ? Also intending to give business cards to everyone I know + was thinking of talking to a few local contractors ie. central heating installers/plumbers etc.

I see a few people have mentioned the rated tradespeople website - how does this work & is it worth it ?

I know its going to be tough especially in this current climate but any advice would be a help.

Cheers
Daz

Hi to you both & thanks for reply - goodprint do look good - just watching the pennys though at the moment but may have to take the plunge.

As far as NIC assessment goes I was bricking it to say the least but they were very helpful on the day & although it felt like a driving test (infact worse than that) I managed to get through it ok.

You will have to put some money up to start with as books they want & test equipment callibration/proving unit etc cost money but I suppose its the initial outlay thats a lot & then hopefully should not be too bad.

I will let you know in about a year if its all been worth it though !!!

Cheers
