    What is better? Placing your ad in the Easy Ad, or doing door to door flyers?

    I'd go with door-to-door flyers, nothing good comes easy in this world you have to work for it, get a load of flyers and go door-to-door, it will pay off!

    Do the ad in the paper and hand out flyers in areas you want to work in.

    Yeah if your just starting out ad in paper and flyers is a good cheap way to go and you will get good results.

    I have always had great luck with flyers. Just stick them in the door handle or in the door. No need to knock on every door. That will take you way to long. I usually get my son and neighbors kid to help me do this. it usually takes us 6 - 8 hours per thousand flyers.
