Where is the best place to spend your advertising dollars? Would you try door to door flyers, specific area mailings, newspapers, phone book, radio, etc. What have you tryed in the past that has generated the best results? Any help in this area would be appreciated.

From my experience/results.
1- Direct mail fliers.
2- Door hangers.

With either, you're able to accurately target your chosen area of work.
Be prepared to think in the thousands for best results.
Make it professional looking.

Where do you get your mailing list for direct mail fliers? Do you take the time to go out and make up your own list or have you bought a list from someone else?

wells-if you don't have anything to do i.e. rainy day, bored after dark print off a bunch of flyers, drive around and stick them in newspaper holders below the mailbox it sounds dumb but me and a buddy did it and had to turn people away. also pretty cheap
