    Have your truck and trailer lettered..... Nice and big....

    Flyers are not so great.. expect about a 1% return on them... Unless its a new home area you may get a better turn out....

    Do a search on flyers you can see how it has worked for others

    there are loads of ideas on advertising and marketing. click on the search feature for "advertising" and you'll bring back over 3,000 posts. if you go into the "advanced search" feature, narrow it down by searching the term in only the "business forums".
    you'll be reading for days...

    Hi caz1,

    I think a lot of it has to do with time and money. A good way to get yourself going without much money is to make flyers and go out and meet people. The more people you know the better your chances of finding jobs.

    We have many flyers available for you to download for free. Edit them however you want. Here is an example.
