If you’re looking for ways to advertise your services for free, I’d like to recommend a web site for you:

www.Thumbtack.com

This is the web site where I got my second client lead after starting Coaching With Christina!

How’s that for awesome?

Here’s why I think this is a great resource if you are advertising a service:

  • It’s a great way for people to find you without spending extra money.
  • Someone may contact you directly after seeing your profile.
  • Another way to get referrals is Thumbtack will also send you requests made by people looking for your services that you can bid on.

You can include so much more information on your profile page here than on other free directory sites. There’s a lot of room for personalization in the form of pictures, videos, and audios.

Plus there are “prompt questions” you can answer to explain more about your services and what you do. Sometimes just answering these questions, I think of great ways to explain what I do that I wouldn’t have otherwise thought about.

In other words, there are a lot of opportunities to share information here…

Here’s a link to my profile page again if you want to check it out:

  1. Hi there Your current web site runs up literally slow for me, I don’t know who’s problem
    is that although youtube starts up pretty immediate. Anyways, I want to thank you for attaching amazing blog
    post. Nearly everybody who actually discovered this great site must have discovered this informative article incredibly useful.

    This is without a doubt brilliant what you actually have done in this article and want to see more
    posts by you. To get additional information from content that you post, I have added this site.
