    It is late in the season to grab commercial accounts unless you just get lucky and find a disgruntle one. You may want to focus on the residential or will call service. One thing to try is to make a 8" x 11 1/2" brochure or print a piece of paper from the computer then have your friends and relatives post it on the boards where they work.

    I market my business by walking into the business, approching the appropraite person, and explaining how my service can help thier business. I guess it's easier for me because I am the only one in a town of 5400 people who does snow removal with pickups. Anyway, I find the upfront approach to work the best.

    Put a boxed ad in your paper. It'll catch some procrastinators.

    Put your phone number on the side if your truck. Big block letters SNOWPLOWING 123-4567. I used magnetic signs I had made up from Office Max. It has worked for me for many years.

    place an add in the newspaper and make sure that your truck is clean and lettered. If you are into driveways you should also look for free places to hang a paper with number rip offs.
