    Since when did threads turn into infomercials? Anyway, to expand I would focus on targeting neighbors of current customers, assuming that they seem like they are worth working for. Otherwise target an ideal neighborhood that you feel you would be the most successful in. Follow that by door to door advertising, handing out business cards, etc.
    And while referrals are one of the most likely ways to scorre you new accounts, simply telling neighbors that you are looking to expand service in the neighborhood may cause them to point you out to their neighbors. I believe a happy and loyal customer is most likely to help you, but some guys may offer a discount for "bundling" neighbors to save time and travel costs.

    They are sponsors that pay for this site so you can use it. I personally appreciate them.

    Thanks for your appreciation :) but I don't blame him, I don't like advertising messages all over the place either. That's why I try to not to be too "salesy".

    I'm always happy to help whether you use our services or not and that attitude stems straight down from our CEO.
