I am a painter that has been painting since 2002. I am trying to build my business. I have referral customers but want to be more visible. Anyone have any recommendations. I have thought about a website, I am in the Yellow pages (DEX). Do flyers and door hangers work?

Use the search function in the upper right corner.

I can't say enough about the benefits of a good professional webpage.

And welcome.
