    Ive been workin in the industry for over a decade and am fully capable of running most machines and doing most of the work is no problem. I have good references and a good personality. For some reason though I have only been able to book one job and a couple new lawns to mow. my advertising budget is pretty small so i need to know the best way to get your name out there. Thanks for your time!

    Well, word-of-mouth is the very best and free. However, you seem to be in a pickle with only a few accounts...unless I'm reading this wrong and you meant you only booked those on top of a regular account load.

    Do you get a free listing in your yellow pages as a phone company customer? I know here Bellsouth lets us run a single line for free for being a customer with them. If not, I think a small yellow page ad runs around $30 a month. Local yellow pages reach nearly everyone in your area and that is usually the first place people go when looking for a service.
