    I would say most of ours came via word of mouth and networking , problem is if you are not a real large company some commercial company's will not take a chance on you because they want the stability of a large company im not for shure i agree with that but thats the way they seem to do it here , then you have the ones that go strictly off price so if you take them you make no money , so in my opinion networking , get your image out there so these company's know who you are and see you around and trust in your service , for us commercial account growth has been slow , but i know other people who where the exact oposite , they got into the business with a bunch of commercial accounts because they knew the right people , like they say its not what you know but who you know.
