    I am just getting started what are some tips for advertising? What has seemed to work the best for you to gain customers over the years?

    Newspaper it's the cheapest most efficient way to get the word out. Try smaller towns next to the city they sometimes have local papers for that area only and they are usually fairly cheap. Good luck.

    I have sings on the side of my truck, that has got a couple but I would have to say the best way is word of mouth. That is where 90% of my acounts have come from so i guess just do a great job on the ones you have right now! Hope this helps and good luck!

    word of mouth is the best, I went door to door, door hangers, business cards, flyers signs for truck but the best is word of mouth
