Coupons, incentives to shop at your store or buy your product to get word of mouth around.

It’s a gutter cleaning service using an industrial vac. Sometimes people are annoyed by leaflets. At least, that's what I have found in my experience. But you should not give up in the gutter cleaning services, I would suggest that you keep going with your flyers, and with postings on local business bulletin boards. Craigslist (as mentioned before) also helped to increase visibility for me. In our area, we're allowed to put flyers in individual newspaper boxes (not in mailboxes, though), and this allows us to cover a whole lot of ground in a very short time. My children and I went out one Saturday, and covered 5 subdivisions, distributing over 400 flyers, in just under 2 hours.
