    Why not make a flyer and send it out to all the businesses in your area that your services would appeal to--all contractors would be first on the list. Follow up with a phone call or another flyer shortly after to remind them you are there. Your business may be good for a magnet or sticker because most likely people won't need your service when they get the flyer and may not fond your number when they need it.

    Good luck.
