    Try flyers, friends, family members, going door to door, door hangers etc. When I first started out I mostly went door to door and through friends. Must sure to have some brochures or literature about your company for potential customers.

    Just a note too don't take it personal, but don't type in caps. People around here hate it because its hard to read.

    When I very first started, I did the newspaper thing. It brought in some calls. They weren't prime calls, but it was money that wouldn't have had. The main thing is, is that it got me out there for exposure. THAT's where you get the business, is DOING business. People se you working in a neighborhood, and just stop, or flag you down. Eventually, you can pick and choose. Just take what you can get, first.
