once you get a couple accounts-offer discounts to your existing customers if they recommend and you get contracts for other jobs. That's kinda an incentive to get your name around. Most do it out of good will, but a little green helps the effort.

you will have to beat off the tight wads with a stick but it gets you started
My first year %95 came from the list .
STOP But what ever you do don't wast your time if they post on there looking for some one to cut there grass.(they are looking for a kid to come and cut it for $5 )
Good luck and hope you have a good start for next year!!
I also put on the list a few weeks back Trading Lawn care for sign work.
On the 3rd day I had a guy call me up to haul off sign trash . I got $350 worth of signs made for me and it only took me 45 min max with drive time and $11.50 for the dump cost, and in 2 weeks he is going to letter up my trailer for the next load of sign trash!!

Hook up with food delivery business’s maybe the local pizza shop. Ask them if they can add a referral card to there pizza delivery clients in return you’ll offer them a referral fee. You’ll get local clients and get a tighter route.

Good luck

i don't know if i would go that route i work for a pizza place and offered to do some services for free in exchange for letting me out my ad on the boxes and i also placed my ad with their door hangers i put out and did not get one single reply now i did have my own door hangers printed up and put them out by themselves and got atleast one call every time i put them out so far this has been my best advertising method

How about approach the local barbers and hairstylists and offer them an incentive for every referral card they pass out to their customers. You might even motivate them to talk up your business by promising them a percentage of each new account that results from their referral.

Just another one to the mix
