I started my business late last Summer and have really worked hard at building it this year. I managed to pick up 18 new customers this year from word of mouth and Craigslist. In the Spring, I tried passing out flyers in neighborhoods around me and didn't get anything from it. But, I also did that in the Spring and most people probably already have a company lined up. So, I'm looking for ideas from other people as to what has worked for you and what continues to work.

I got some real nice full color postcards and I'm going to hit up some neighbors of lawns I already mow and try to get some more business that way. I'm also going to go door to door in some neighborhoods and hand deliver these nice postcards and introduce myself. I'm part of a networking group with a handyman business I own and that has been great for that line of work. I don't know if my landscaping business would benefit from it.

What are some of the things that work for you all?
