    There are alot of guys that seem to do this alot and make good money from doing it. When ever I put a craigslist add up I put before picture , soaping picture and after picture and they look great! I can't seem to pull any customers in. Ive got maybe 4 jobs total with mine and have had my pressure washer for months.(3 months) I advertise on craigslist and even link a short youtube video of it tearing through some greasy concrete area a guy barbequed for years in. I have good pictures but no one seems to respond. So far Ive done 2 driveways a walkway and a play structure. Anyone help me out with some ideas! I would link an add but they always expire and it frustrates me when I see them on here. I click and get the notice its expired. Please help!:cry::cry::dizzy: I forgot and a roof that came out great. Old wooden shingles with no fuzzing I was happy.

    I don't understand why no one has commented anything. Isn't advertising one of the most important essentials of business?

    Mike is right, one form of advertising will not get you enough exposure. Craigslist is also dependent on your locale. I posted nice ads on craigslist for a long while and only got one job granted it was a good account. Be persistant and use as many venues as possible to get your name in front of people.
