    Thanks for the input Brandon!

    Can you give info on the company you use and why? What makes it bring in business? How you are tracking its production?

    What "other stuff" did you try?

    I do all of my own web work. I've tried flyers, radio, local magazine, donating a bus to a charity auction, you name it. I never saw any decent ROI. I do decent with limos.com but if they got any worse it wouldn't be worth it.

    Might I suggest getting to know us here before you solicit to us. Build some rapport. This is a tight group of operators and industry folks; Many of us talk on several different mediums. Just a kind suggestion from an regular around here. Many of the members in this forum help fellow members out for no fee... or anything of the sort.

    Welcome.

    I don't think she's trying to collect anything J. Welcome to the forum Liz. I use Internet and social media groups. I have radio ads and radio contest and that works sometimes.

    Liz,
    What's the name of your company and can you post a link to your site, most of us don't have marketing degrees and would like to see the site of an operator that has.......

    I agree with brandon in this era the most potential way of marketing in web and online leads this is how things are working for limos and even other businesses.

    My radar went off too. Are you a marketer or an operator? The Townepointe website says in business for over 10 years. Were you just hired? What's your role?

    I've been focusing on Internet-based methods as well. Have been interested in trying out the social methods like Facebook/Twitter but have not started yet. Anyone with experience in those venues? I have several ideas for Facebook, no clue about Twitter.

    It's always a good idea to tie your Facebook and Myspace to Twitter, this way your Twitter gets updated every time you update one of the others. It's a pain to have to update all 3 so why not let them do it for you? Post on one and it posts on all 3 at the same time.

    That's my "secret tip of the day".

    Default Welcome to the forum Liz

    Hi Liz,
    Affiliate marketing has worked well for us. We have established good relationships with other limo companies in other cities and refer clients travelling in and out of town.
    On the web side, we exchange links with those affiliates and use a good SEO company to increase traffic. You'll notice the more savy members (including myself) on this forum will also include a link to back to their sites in their positing footer or signature to add to backlinks and score some ranking points.
