Now would be good. You should always be advertising in some form or another.

I have been doing flyers for two weeks (on the rare nice days where I don't have something else going. I would say now would be a great time to get going in your neck of the woods.

I am in northern Minnesota and I was wondering the same question of when to start hardcore. Do you guys know how to get maps of your city? what about demographics? I am going to target older folks in the community aswell as cabin owners. I am a college student and I am Low on budget. How many flyers should I get made up? I would love to get some advice.
