It is a process, you need to start now as in, don't go to sleep until spring.

For residentials:
You likely want to start designing an ad, that ought to keep you busy for a bit.
Because you still have to design it, it's better that way, saves much needed cash too.

For commercial you'll want someone else's advice, I'm pretty much a residential guy.

Never stop looking for work....For commercial work you need to get in touch with the prop manager and find out when they open up for bids. or you can work up an estimate and drop it buy. But you really never stop looking for work. I would send out all my contracts for renewal in Octobers bill so I'd get an early Idea of what I had coming back for next year....

I spend all my advertising money in April/May/June. But I live in Massachusetts, and I bet it is different everywhere else.
