Getting commercial accounts?

What do you do to get commercial accounts? How far ahead of the season do they usually contract a company?

If your looking to get into commercial sites this year, I'd say your probably a little too late. Most commercials have already signed for the 2003 season. I'd start making contacts this fall for next season. You might get lucky and find a few stragglers that haven't signed yet, but I doubt it. ED

Commercial Contracts.

Most commercial businesses will place ads in the local papers. Watch your papers in the fall and again in the mid winter Ie; Dec/Jan. We pick up a few every year.
