I am in need of some advice on which way to advertise that is most efficient for a shoestring budget. I have decided to drive my own bus, but am having a hard time figuring out how to get recognized. I have been trying to come to a conclusion by researching online but its hard to get a clear picture. Also hard to trust anything you read online. What did some of you guys that hve been operating for the last 5 tears or so do when you started as a small business owner? What seems to be generating the most potential clients. I know there's more work for a painter out there just trying to figure out how to bring it my way. Any suggestions?
