    Congratulations on starting your new business. I was once able to attend the Calgary Stampede and really enjoyed my time there. I am not sure what the market conditions for electricians are in Calgary, but here in New England, the demand is crazy. I have an electrician who I have used for years and is so busy these days, that he does not return repeated calls for projects that I have for him. It is pretty much the same for plumbers, handymen, etc.

    Your website is not great, but if demand is as large as I expect it be, it should not matter. You could put up a FaceBook page and that might actually get more traction than your website, especially if you post in some local groups.

    My suggestions is that you try some other low-cost, offline promotions like flyers in local businesses. If there is a weekly local newspaper, you could run a cheap ad there, too. Another very cheap option that I have used before is spot radio ads on a local radio station.

    Good luck and keep us posted on your launch.

    Why do you have the navigation if none of the links are working? Remove it altogether. A one page site will work just fine for you. And as the mustache guy above said, having a facebook page is a must. My wife and I found electricians, plumbers, roofers by asking our friends on facebook and 90% of time they referred us to someone on facebook (not their site).
