1. Is a seperate business phone a must to start a business??? 2. I live in a rural area in Illinois, a town of 100K people is about 15 miles away and the Chicago suburbs are about 35 miles to the north... Should I run a yellow pages ad in the local directory only or also run an ad in a couple suburban books??? Or would I be better off running a few ads in several papers?? Or just distributing fliers in the different areas???? I am having a hard time deciding if I should focus on the area closer to me or the area thats further away, yet more populated and wealthy... Any suggestions???
