Welcome to our forum!

Have you been able to line up a bunch of customers so far? Have you gotten any of your friends, family or associates to sign on as customers?

Are you marketing in your social circles and organizations?

I am new in the business as well man. From what I have gotten so far you need to get word of mouth clients as soon as you can and this is what has made my business start rolling really well. I landed a huge job and client from a guy who got my business card in a local sandwich shop in town where I posted it on a board. Flyers have not worked to well for me yet. Good luck man

Have you been marketing yourself in your social circles or organizations? What have you found worked best so far to create a lot of word of mouth promotion?
