Making it on your own
I am just starting my own massage business from my house and I have been advertizing with flyers and Gumtree. Does anyone know other repectable sites for the Edinburgh area?
websites are the way to go these days, and facebook. If you want to make an easy website I'd recommend www.350.com they have ready made pages that you just write up your stuff on and then publish online. Some of their pages are free - which might be a good place to start - or you can upgrade them to suit your business.
Hope this helps.
