Starting out... month by month

Put out like 30,000 flyers door hangers. Your business will explode. You just have to really put some money into advertising. I spent like $4000 advertising but 1 of the contracts was that much and the other 100 plus contracts were gravy.

I think I was around 8 yards my first year. But didn't do any advertising or anything to promote my buisness. And I live with my parents so it wasn't a big deal to get several yards . I'm at accounts on my 3rd season

everyone in my area keeps moving. i swear i lose 3-4 accounts every year because of it. how am i supposed to get ahead when it's like this? i've had 3 estimates so far this year. i got one and then they call me this morning and cancel saying they will call me later. i doubt that will happen. this year is off to a horrible start to say the least.
