Default Any advice for promoting a small, eco-friendly renovations business

I'm looking at starting my own home renovations business, with an emphasis on eco-friendly design. I've flipped a couple houses with my family business, worked as an HVAC Engineer for a few years and was also involved with a net zero energy home as part of a student design project.

I've got the know how and am curious to see if anyone can provide any tips for promoting my business. I realize that renovation season is ending, but any tips would be much appreciated.

I get everything from homestars now, I would get a listing on there. Make sure you have all the required insurance.

From my recent experience with trades, simply responding quickly and politely will get you ahead of 90% of your competition. Good communication = referrals.

Houzz.com may be a good resource as well

CP Power Ring! If you have reasonable rates and good reviews, you're golden.

I was just going to say the Power Ring.

I'm surprised we don't have a resident plumber, electrician or mechanic in there. They'd make a killing off of CP alone.
