    What are good ways to advertise for guys fairly new to the business? A good way used to be the flyer on the mailbox or in the driveway but where i live that has gotten so overused that there are signs saying solicitors will be prosecuted. Sometimes i go through an neighborhood and there are 5-6 flyers taped to the mailbox and laying in the dirveway too the point where they are becoming useless.

    DOOR-TO-DOOR. It's tiring and late evenings. Don't cost you any money and closure rate is good.

    I did door-to-door, and had a fairly good closure rate too. Be careful though--one subdivision's HOA officer came out and asked me to leave due to "no soliciting" signs that were posted. Naturally if I did not leave, the police would come out and have me do so.
