    It depends on your advertizing budget
    don"t rely on just flyers,
    advertizing is key in any business
    my first year i had 35 accounts 20 were weekly and 15 were bi weekly
    I tend to stay way from them now
    if a new customer wants bi weekly i just tell them i t would be 10 dollars
    more and they ask why i tell them its hard on the equitment and
    i do quality work
    It has worked i now have 95 accounts payup

    it takes a lot of will power and planning to make your company
    i started out with 100 bucks and a beat up old lawn mower

    it has been a adventure but im happy that i did this

    Good luck
