As I’m sure you are all aware the most important thing in any locksmith business is advertising. If nobody can find your number it dosnt matter if your the best locksmith in the world your not probably going to generate any work. We all advertise in different ways and in different places spending money on advertising we think gives us our best chance of making a good return on investment. Sometimes people sink vast amounts of money into there advertising strategys and see very little return from it. Often free listing directories can get over looked as many believe they will not be a valid source of income and will be a waste of time. In some cases this may be true but what about if you look at it another way? Most free directorys take no longer than 5 – 10 minutes to set up and if that brings you in just one job you are well and truly in pocket! I’ve compiled a list of free listing directorys with links so you can sign up to the most popular U.K. Directorys quickly and easily. Some of these directorys will offer a paid promotion listing as well but don’t worry you can just opt for the free listing part. Enjoy 😁
