Default Hi everyone

Good to be here, although some might say in the back door!! true I was a painter and decorator for several years and was very sucessful. Unfortunately I had an accident which meant physical work was no more for me.

So I set up localtrades4you a website where local quality tradesmen can be promoted for a fair price and properly. I too remember the endless sales calls promising the world and delivering zero. Next year a new faceless salesman calls and when you tell them it did not work , its your fault, you should of been enhanced, had a bigger advert and so on. All costs more !!! (tell me I am right)

I hope I fill a gap in that market, we try to and the guys ( and girls) on with us like the fact that I have been in their place and know how hard it is to advertise sucessfully. So sorry if anyone thinks I am here under false pretention, it is not my aim.

So if you are in Bucks Herts Beds Oxon or Northants at least have a look at us and if you like, lets have a chat. Below is the link to my website.

Thanks for reading

Default My story

Hi

To cut a long story short. I hit my funny bone on a coat hook in someones hallway, had a few days of pain, went to hospital, got some bad advice and due to this I slowly lost the use of my hand. Had an operation which had corrected some of the issues, but holding a paint brush, writing etc is near impossible.

But as one door closes another opens and used my knowledge of what I thought was missing from advertising to assist others who found it as frustrating as I had. It works well but as I see you are several thousand miles away I am sorry we can not work together, but thanks for your intrest in my situation.
