First I would like to say that everyone on this forum has given me a wealth of information to read. As the title stated I am new to this buisness. My family has been hanging lights for the neighborhood for years, but never went public. I know it's late in the year, so mainly taking the time to learn and do a few small jobs. The income is tight at the moment due to holidays, but I want to be ready next year. I have a few questions and hope that all you professionals can help a new guy. 1. What kind of lights do you use on windows? I can't fin a way to hang them and look nice. Always left over lights and never a plug to be found. how do you all hang them? 2. When you wrap piers with garland, do you do every 4 inches and what do I use to keep it in place? I know there are companies you can pay to help get you started, but still not sure on spending the cash for it next year. I would like to learn all I can and then see if a hobby i enjoy can make me some extra money. Thanks for any advice.
