    make up a flyer and pass it out to all your neighbors and anywhere around your other accounts. the best way to advertise is word of mouth so make sure you are always doin a great job and make sure everyone you meet knows about your busisness and the great work you do

    Everywhere that is free (craigslist, biz card at gas station, etc) then go for low costs ads and track the success rates and drop bad ads and add more $$ to good ads

    You could get some magnetic signs to put on your truck, lots of business cards to pass out, a bunch of flyers to pass out around you current accounts or areas you would like to get into, newspaper ads work depending on the area, try getting a website. There are a number of ways to advertise. Just get creative and brainstorm.

    On a side note, you got alot of nice equipment, how did you get that all at such a young age? You must be doing pretty well.
