    What do you guys do for advertising to get new accounts. I did flyers this year and its not doing so great so far. From what I read here, flyers aren't the way to go.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You,

    Joey

    You still have time to put ads in the local paper. Do you have a community paper near you?

    Should ask are you looking at driveways or commercials?

    fliers...business cards...face to face meetings, which i give them a company portfolio (equip pics, past jobs' reference, testimonials)...phone calls and more calls and i keep calling until i get an answer or placed on the bidding list.

    Now this is all what i do for commercial accounts but some of it, if not most of it can be used for the residential market. face to face time is probably my best tool.
