This year I was planning on going full time but I don't think I have the accounts. I have an ad in our local newspaper, put pull-tab flyers in a lot of stores, handed out a ton of business cards and mailed out a few flyers. NOT ONE NEW ACCOUNT. I've gotten several calls for hardscape jobs(which i don't do yet) and like 2 calls from houses out of my range but i'm not getting anything.

Is it still early? Should I plan on keeping my day job? What is a good way to rack up some quick accounts? I'm in some trouble!!

yeah i guess it's still a little early I have an add in the paper and it runs out at the end of march, i was wondering if i sould bother to renew it because it has been so worth less to me and it cost me almost 300 bucks for 5 weeks.

have to agree with mtd, never been a big fan of newspaper ads. Brainstorm ideas, even the most crazy idea for getting customers could be the best one.
