    Help, Where should I start advertising? ! I've relied only on word of mouth for my first 4yrs. Where should I begin?:confused:

    Click the search button and try words like" advertising and yellow pages and flyers" There is tons of info in the archives.

    You will find nothing better for quality customers than word of mouth. They already know what to expect and a ballpark price. They are already sold many times.

    Flyers do better for me than newspaper ad. I have had very bad luck closing any sales from the paper this year. By the time they call me they have already called 5 to 10 others for estimates. I know my cost down to the penny and I know what I will make off a job or I will go broke from the house. If I have price shoppers I lose. If I have quality and specialty shoppers I win.
