that sounds like a good idea, I'm going to keep pounding out door hangers, fliers via mailslots, newspaper ads!

I hope these 3 basic advertising methods will attract a few customers, then I would like customer grabbers through referals and word of mouth!

Word of mouth is the most powerful, but the most difficult to achieve because nobody knows you exist, until you prove yourself through worksmanship!

What I suggest to do is, keep pounding fliers, doorhangers, newspaper ads in mass quantities..

1000 door hangers = how many customers vs
10,000 door hangers, 10,000 fliers = how many more customers?

this is a numbers game!

In my city, you need a permit to go door to door, but dont need one if you dont talk to the people. I usually go around 3:30 or 4am, work til 6:30, and usually dont have to deal with any tired, pissed off people.
