 Customer Testimonials


What are our customers saying? ServeNow.com Testimonials...
quote

We recently listed with your service in January of 2006 and almost immediately we received several requests for process service in our area. We have used the internet for quite sometime, however never realized that we were missing revenue by not advertising online.

ServeNow.com promises to be an asset to our company as well as the local clients we serve. I was at first hesitant, however impressed with the fact that you do take steps to insure that your directory has qualified process servers. If any potential new companies would like a recommendation, by all means list us as a contact.

Thank you again and look forward to remaining with ServeNow.com for years to come.

 Marketing Tips


Tips for Effective Marketing  
Marketing your company can be a very expensive and time-consuming endeavor. However, there are a number of little things you can be doing that can make a big difference.
 
Tip #1 - Market your Web Site
If you have a web site, make sure your customers know about it. Include your web address on your business cards, letterhead, brochures and anywhere else you are marketing your company. Having a web site portrays a high level of professionalism that may help you stand out amongst your competition.
   
Tip #2 - Create a Signature Block for your Emails

Using a signature block in your email can be a very effective way of marketing your services. Most email programs have an option that automatically includes your signature block in all your emails. If you are using Microsoft Outlook, for instance, you can find this feature under the 'Tools' menu. Select 'Options' then click on 'Mail Format'. Signature blocks should contain your name, contact information, web address, even a company tag line. An effective signature block may appear as follows:
