    Craigslist has worked wonders for me.

    Everyone knows someone, find someone in the area you want to work that is in a good visible location. Give them a deal they can't refuse. Being seen and word of mouth has always been the best and most affordable advertising for me. If you have an enclosed trailer, lettering it up will also do wonders.

    AT&T yellow page book (large space ad) + google advertising + excellent, colorful, inviting, friendly web page + reasonable prices = over 90 new accounts for me this year.

    It took me a long time to find the answer to advertising effectively but I finally found it. I've even tried radio advertising and that didn't work. My current monthly budget is about $600.

    The only thing I do for advertising is "extra services" in the off season. Leaf cleanups, aerations, etc. Everything else comes so fast by word of mouth it's hard to keep up. Good luck - I would try Direct Mail first, but make sure you have someone design your mailing that knows what they are doing.

    Well now is a great time for door hangers since the summer is coming to a close! A'deas Printing just released a new special for 1000 door hangers (featuring their state of the art Band-It) for only $99.00! With it comes FREE 3 day rush, next day proof approval, AND a free design option. So, if you don't have a file that's ready for printing, utilize our excellent designer or our online design application. They also do direct mail for post cards too. For more information visit their website at

    Why talk about the company you work for in the third person?
