    I don't know if it works but this afternoon I hand delivered 300 flyers with pricing to neighborhoods I wanted to target. May or may not work. Sounds like a high number but I am planning on the 10% rule.

    JTS, ask your current customers to refer you to others. You can also sub for larger outfits. You may end up making more money subbing for a commercial plow outfit. The $/hr is less than residential but there is minimal wear on your equipment. You can pick up one lot to cover your costs, then jack up your residential rates and let the cheapos go and sell quality and reliablity to those willing to pay for better work.
