For now though, I am here to stay
I own a small time HVAC company and business had been good for awhile. Recently a major HVAC corporation moved into my small town. They have tons of HVAC technicians, multiple brand name products and offer things like free estimates, two year warranties and 24 hour emergency service. I am just one guy and a small time business owner. I can’t afford to offer these deals and I can’t keep up with all their many services. For awhile I figured my little business was going to close. A buddy of mine told me that I should contact an online marketing company for some help. The idea of paying someone to give me business seemed weird. The lack of funds was my issue. Handing out more money seemed stupid. I was desperate though and figured why not? The online marketing company has been amazing. The first thing they did was make me a website. Anytime someone types in my town name, HVAC, or even repair, my business is the first that comes up. My little business ranks higher than the major HVAC corporation even. I also have a facebook, google business and twitter page for my business that gets posts on it. Every now and then the SEO team does google ads promoting my business. I have gotten quite a few calls from all of these services. Time will tell if my business is going to make it. For now though, I am here to stay. I am getting another customers and money flowing in to make it to another season. I am hoping the business just keeps on growing.
