  To date the business has not invested in marketing. Increasing the marketing in the local area could provide many excellent avenues for growth. Work is achieved through existing contracts, word of mouth and many referrals.

A dedicated sales and marketing effort could yield significant levels of additional business and profitability as, by its own admission, the business tends to be reactive rather than proactive in its approach to sales and marketing.

Investment in a company website could prove to be a valuable asset.
