    JayD has been talking about doing door hangars, might talk to him on that... I know there is a lot of info on this if you do a search for it... a lot of people have their own opinion.... Im not going to say when I would just because I am tight liped about a lot of stuff but there is no true bad time to advertise.... some people do it multiple times a year some just before the warm weather comes..... personal prefrence really.

    Hi,
    I am a fellow Hoosier,though I am not from Indy.I hail from the eastern most city of Richmond. I agree with Dave about the advertising. No time is a bad time. I do however think that the middle of February is the best time to really start putting your name out there.

    I hope you have already come up with some sort of a business plan. I would suggest you start checking competitors prices to.

    Good luck getting prices.. though some would help with bottom dollar prices so that you can stay competitive... if it is a $35 job and you charge $20 you are just hurting your self and everyone else.

    One reason I would suggest checking prices is to see if you can survive within the median price range being charged. If your lifestyle would require a charge of $15 to $20 above median you might consider another line of work.
