I am in the middle of my first year. I maintain about 19 properties right now. My city is only about 25k. I will try to break down how I got my current clients. I spent $1000 on post cards this spring. I spent about $100 on door hangers. Door hangers got me a few 1 time jobs, but no weekly clients. Focus on your online presence. I spent all winter making my site and making my business easy to find.
