I'm just starting out on my own and need some advice on how to advertise. I have landed a couple of small repair gigs but nothing major yet. How did you guys advertise when you just started out? Do you have any tips for me? How well off am I? Here is a little about me- I have 3 years of landscape/irrigation experience and I am 19. I am a licensed irrigator in the DFW area. My rate is $65 per man hour + parts I have a truck,521, accounts with Ewing and Longhorn. College student Just started a month ago.
