Growing your business takes time. Do you have a website? Have you been using online advertising?

If you have website then you can promote your website online and then you can get traffic on your website. It will increase your online business.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Also set up a Facebook page for your company. Take photos of your work. Like helping people who locked their keys in the car. You can promote your work on Facebook.

If you don't have a website and aren't in local online directories like Google Local and Yelp, that's going to be your best bet. Simply put, Yellow Pages is becoming more and more outdated every day and everyone seems to be turning to their smartphones for answers. If you're not online, I suggest you get there as soon as possible.

It seems that brilliant minds think alike.

Now, the op, just need to figure out which social media network is best for his or her locksmith business.

Default Promote a small coupon or savings

Offer something for FREE, use a coupon. People really like getting a discount and people will seek out the best price. Use that to your advantage. Create a coupon or a flyer and include an offer. Then promote it every where you can. On your FB, Twitter, G+, Craigslist, CiteAds, Oodle, Ebay Classifieds... You get the point. Its all free to use these services. I can throw a flyer together for you, for free of course.

How long have you been in business?
How many clients on average are you working with each month?
How many employees do you have?
What is your web address?

With some of the above information it will make it a bit easier to offer advice.
