    Can't put a price tag on exposure. Letter your trucks and trailers. They are constantly moving and people see them. Then make sure you are accessible in the phone books and internet so they can find you. When doing a search in your area if you see a business name come up and you have seen their trucks out and about you think 'Hey I've seen them around and now here they are popping up on the search engines' and you have never even seen their work. Works well for us. Unfortunately it also works well for fly-by-night crooks, but they tend to put themselves out of business. Word of mouth is the absolute best form of advertisement. Let your customers help you out by delivering what you sold them. Good luck.
