The book your refering to is the criss cross directory. It can be done quickly if you know the street names in the target area. I just went to my local branch an ask the librarian if they had such a book. She knew exactly what I was talking about. Simply go to the page with your streets and make a copy. Our branch offers this service for a modest charge. Then I went home and entered them into my computer. With the data base in a software program that prints labels post cards, ect... I had "MS WORKS" at the time, I could print post card type flyers, $0.20 stamps vs. $0.32 stamps at the time. We also went to a local KINKO's for a postcard design as they offered that service. Hope I haven't run on to long but this stuff get the brain sizzling. To advertise on the net find a local web site, i.e. Atlanta.com or something and buy some banner space. You can also find local web sites with similar product lines that may allow you to buy space or perhaps exchange links, i.e. you could offer grass cutting services and the other party could offer landscaping or stone work. Better end here before I run out of finger tips.
