    Although I've been plowing in my town for many years, I thought I'd throw an ad in our local town publication to pick up a few more customers. Big storm this weekend brought in over 100 calls total and they're still coming in. I've got people who want me to plow their driveways through wednesday. :) Of course I can't do anywhere near this amount of driveways, but I'm doing what I can, and will be working the better part of this week. It really does pay to advertise especially for those of you just starting out.

    I remember about 20 years ago I had a new battery installed in my truck. Later in the week the temp got down to -20. I had the wife call the local radio station and tell them they could announce that I would jump start vehicles for $5.00 (it's a small town and radio station). I was busy from 9am to 9pm doing nothing but starting cars!! I made somewhere around $150 that day. My expenses were a tank of gas and a pizza I took home after the last one.

    Since I work full time and can't plow as a business maybe I'll try the same thing with plowing if it comes on a day off. Of course, we have to get the snow!! Still waiting!!!!

    I, too, have an advertising triumph to talk about...

    I placed an add in the services section of my local newspaper "The Hammond Times" for snowplowing. The add cost me 400.00 for 3 months including Sunday. So far, I have gemerated over 1,000.00 in accounts per snowfall and it hasn't even snowed yet.payup I can't wait to hear the phone ring when it actually does snow.
