    I just bought a Lazer Z and want to pick up more clients. Any suggestions as to picking up the most number of clients. I have 15 right now but am looking for 30. Low number because i still am in high school.

    Ask your customers if they know anyone who needs your services. Your work will speak for itself.

    Get clients from your customers and try door to door. If you really want to you can give the new ppl a free first cut to entice them see what happens.

    Get the legs going, an saturate the area with flyers. Run an ad in the local newspaper. Drive around an put flyers in the newspaper boxes. Put ads up in local stores....

    Its not rocket science, as Emeril says....

    Tell your customers that you will give them $30 for each referral you get from them. That should work out to an average of about one cut. People LOVE money! I've seen this done several times, like with $20.

    I geatly appreciate the advise, my flyers do work. Basically they say i want to go to an Ivy League school, and my Dad is too cheap to pay. Basically true though.

    I never have trouble getting clients. My problem is weeding out the troublesome ones, which is likely to happen to you if you are not careful about who you take on as a customer. I routinely cull out the clients that cause me more problems than they are worth. Most of my new accounts are by word of mouth. I like it that way.
