marketing: I'm Low budget, un-accredited, inexperienced, pricey?, oh and ethnic! What could be the problem? - 07/18/07 11:31 AM
I've recently put up my website http://www.HomeADress.net (Home Staging Services). And immediately began directing traffic to it. For the past few weeks i've been anxiously awaiting the calls from agents and homeowners that need my service here in Atlanta, but the calls haven't come.
