There's no  hard and fast approach regarding pricing,  except a minimum charge. I do jobs for less than £1.50  a metre, but there's circa 3000 metres.

You have a camera so price it as you see it.

Sounds like you have the equipment. Maybe a generator would be a good investment. Handy for commercial jobs. 

I advertise on as many platforms as possible. Adwords is ok, you need to know what you are doing. Facebook advertising is ok. 

I mainly concentrate on SEO (search engine optimization) Because its a long term investment. Google my business is also a must. 

As for pricing, i price mine on a set price of the type of property. IE, 3 bed semi £x amount. You will get easy ones and hard ones so it does work its way out. 

The main objective is to build up a customer base. Most will want you back every year, recommend you to friends, neighbours, family etc. 

Take a look at your competitors in your area. See what they are charging. It does vary across the UK.
