Whats Best?

So as most of everyones season is ending and preparing for next. I was wondering what everyone is/will be doing to get more customers. I have been trying to think up different ways but nothing is coming to me.

Any help or opinions are greatly appreciated.

I am going to be doing mostly fliers, and a small direct mailing. Also, I am going to try to upsell a lot of my current customers that I know can afford new services.

Ditto. I like pounding the pavement with fliers in my free time. I especially do it in the winter to push snow removals, and add landscaping in there so people know I'm a company to consider.
