Relocating

I've relocated to a totally different part of the country and am starting over after 24 years. Anyone done anything like this before, and how did you start getting customers? I'm so used to the word of mouth advertising, I'm not sure what works best. So far, Craigslist has been an absolute bust.

I tried it, and it didn't work. Not only did I not know anyone or have any connections the new location was nothing like where I left. Different grass, different weeds, different seasons, etc etc. So I decided to work for someone instead and get to know the area first.

It's going to be tough in Florida. I spend my winters there. The's too much immigrant labor there for me to consider working there.
