Hi, PrrpleGrrl.

A couple of ideas (from someone who hasn't done a whole lot of marketing himself.)

Have you considered the newspaper-- perhaps an ad in the weekly "Food" or "lifestyles" sections? ...or even a "Press Release" to your local media declaring your company open for business and explaining your services, etc?

I don't know, honestly, how well either of those methods works as far as % of responses, but at least you've the chance to hit more eyeballs with your company name. "Eyeballs." See what the internet does to you?

Aha. Have you considered a web presence-- with a local focus? There seem to be endless "local directories" online now. You could find a local chat room or two. Even some of the bigger websites (About.com comes to mind, and another one... The Motley Fool) have very focused message boards where you might connect with one or two local folks interested in your services. Have them spread the word!

Well, I hope that's of some value.
