    Besides truck lettering what does everyone use for advertising? I'm looking at getting some yard signs.

    I have truck lettering, yard signs, phone book ad, flyers and one my g/f just came up with a little bit ago for halloween im going to print up a bunch of little flyers and tape them to the candy (going to be time consuming) leave some of the footwork to the potential customers. Do you guys think this is to corny or unprofessional its going to say "Happy Haloween from Jr's Snow Removal" and my number and some info but not to much nice an clean.

    Try it ,can't hurt. If you do the candy make sure it's the little prepackaged candy corn.

    You might try Craig's List. Seems to have good exposure and it's free.

    I use craigslist.org every year and get a lot of good paying business off of it. I only service commercial accounts. I can see residential customers wanting to get the cheapest price, but I have had no problems with commercial customers. I write an advertisement displaying my literacy skills, and suggest to the potential client that they visit the website. I usually win several commercial bids this way.
