I have ads on craigslist, flyers, business cards and word of mouth. I also have my website. I know that the holidays are here and it will be a little slow. I am hoping after New Years business will pick back up.

Yes, I think business is slower this time of the year. Do you live in a smaller area or a bigger city?? The most success I've had in bigger areas was putting flyers at the mailbox area of apartment complexes and in smaller areas putting a flyer up at the pediatrician offices and the small grocery store.

People here have great ideas though.

I live in a large area. Cy Fair ISD. I did pass flyers out before I started and I got no one. But I am hoping it picks up. My craigslist ads have been working great, I get lots of calls and some interviews. Actually the kids I have now got my info from craigslist.
