Hello!
I am doing a bit of research and thought you ladies might be able to help...
I'm a Mum of 2 based in North London who has just taken over running a painting an existing decorating business.
The team are amazing and don't currently advertise. However, most of their trade is in South London. Am REALLY wanting to move things North of the river and am just wondering where you would look for trades people? (besides Mumsnet obvs)
For example, are there any local online forums you would check?Would you look in a hard copy local newspaper? Does your children's school have a noticeboard? Or would you take any notice of flyers etc coming through your front door?
Any feedback would be most appreciated!
thanks

honestly, I would look here:
local.mumsnet.com/islington/painting-and-decorating/99180-quality-painting-decorating-services

Would not use a flyer through the door - these just get binned. And I don't read local papers.

http://www.ratedpeople.com/ is quite good for finding local people.

Google Maps is useful too. Not sure how you get listed on it though.

I do look at the Islington Gazette listings occasionally.
