    Hi guys

    Have a Facebook buiseness page with my info on ect.

    I decided to pay for a boost on a post and promote buiseness in local area.

    The boost post was £10 for 3 days that's now expired as hit the £10. Had 2000 views and 11 clicks.

    I had it set on friends of friends and swapped halfway so all my targeted people could view instead. Wasn't sure what to put under intrests? Had it set in both male and female to target too.

    My promotion for local business was set in a 3 mile radius in busy london. Had 400 views no actions yet.

    Basically had 0 yes 0 enquires what the hell am I doing wrong. I see some here have 8,9 ,10 enquires a week??

    Thanks guys

    I do OK on mine but it's branding, people see my van or know my name but go to facebook to to find me.

    daveyboy I think is supposed to be quite the facebook ninja, perhaps he can say.

    I've messaged you Reach For The Glass

    For me it is as simple as searching the name of every area in town and other areas i want work and finding every group that is called :
    Buy and sell
    Swap and sell
    (Area name) community group
    Small businesses in....
    I need
    Etc
    Then facebook gives you suggestions of related groups which usually gets you a lot more
    It can be slow at first but once you find a group that seems to work for you you will find people ask for a windy and your happy customers from those groups recommend you
    It snowballs from there
    For example someone asked on one of the community groups for a window cleaner and this is the response recommending me in the space of a few minutes

    theres a learning curve to it-like everything . my opinion its essential to have a-good workaday images b- a call to action with prices/special offer that has to be taken straight away

    It is strange
    Some groups you get nothing and others like 2 in particular that i am on are like little goldmines
    In a nice area which is like it's own little community on the outskirts of town
    They seem happy to recommend me for roofs..gutters..windows etc
    1 particular woman has recommended me to her neighbours, her tennants (landlady of 2 houses) and about 10 at least of her friends
    That is worth sorting through the odd messer which you can usually spot a mile away
