    Usually it doesn't cost me much because I get a lot of word of mouth but recently I got a $100 credit for google adwords and got four clients from that. I also made some fertilizing ads and mailed those out; Ended up costing me about $5 for each client I signed up from that.

    So you guys that selected $0-$5 must not pay yourself or you spend 0 minutes estimating the property right? Your vehicle and the maintenance and the fuel, insurance, etc. all must be free also. Hmm maybe you ride your bike to the property, wait a minute those aren't free either.

    How do you do it for no cost? Or is it that you don't have a clue of the costs to run a business or your overhead.

    Wake up people.

    I chose $50+ in case you're wondering.

    There's more to it than just advertising.
