I have advertised in the usual places and have found that, for the most part it works. I have had work of the majority of tuition websites. The other day, I was messaging back and forth with a lady who wanted lessons via UK Tutors, when she found out there was a fee involved to buy my details, the messages stopped. This is the first time this has happened to me. The request is still open but I know I won't hear from her again, you just get a feeling! We had a date and time arranged until she found out. No great loss and there will always be others but it led me on to thinking I should update my ad on gumtree. I have had work from those ads, not loads, but some. My last client looked to gumtree after finding me on a tuition site and then was put off by the fee. Her thought was, if that was me, I would also advertise on Gumtree. I then find out today that gumtree are now charging for advertising services, something like £6 an advert which I think is quite a lot. I have never actually printed leaflets and distributed them but I am currently doing that. Where does everyone else advertise?
