Hi Dom,

The first few years are not easy. I'm doing it for almost 30 years now.

It takes time, beginning of winter now = less work.

I would suggest to enter any facility in a 50 miles radius that have AC or refrigeration and introduce yourself.

Marketing is your most important tool now, maybe take some professional help on how to market yourself.

All the best.

Target markets

Who are your targets ? Small shops, factories, supermarkets, wholesalers, restaurants, etc

Go visit them, tell them what you can do for them.

Print cards.

Agents? Why do you want to work for a middleman, its ok if you are a singer or an actor, not a fridgeman

Good luck

i don't know how chemi-cool is doing in the winter, but in the last years in the winter i had more work then in the summer , but yes it's hard the first few years , i don't have agencies here in my ...... country but i relay on the quality and word spreading , but that u can't have in the first years, you have to be on the market so ppl know you and know what a good job u do

Relocating to a "warmer clime" wont help you as you lose sight and focus of your target.

In business you focus on your target market and perfect your aim. You try try and try again until you penetrate this market.

It takes years to develop. Start small, be a specialist, be the best.

Random "pot shots" here and there will label you a drifter and you will score no goals.

never a truer word said, as someone who looks to employ people, the last place i would go is a agency, as said above they are all actors, thay are failed electricians who once changed a probe or fan motor, then thinks fridge work is a piece of piss!!
