content , content, content .. Targeting will allow you to broaden out the size and types of jobs you want, if you are just starting out maybe have a bigger range of areas you will serve (you can always alter if need be ) but ultimately setting your self apart from the competition is key. high quality photos of your worked performed, on job photos , before and after photos in the projects section where you can also show the price of that job. Answering sum of the question on bottom section of profile so customers know more about you. A Great intro or mission statement for your profile header.. It is not always about being the cheapest. Fast responding will go along way as well. hope this helps

you can set a max budget cap you would like to spend on a weekly bases that fits into your marketing budget, once you start getting charged for leads it will give you a good idea on what each lead will cost you for your business type, the leads for your type of business will stay pretty uniform
