    Make up some flyers (just write what you do and your name and phone numer on some sheets of typing paper. They can be fancy or plain.) and put them on any of the bulletin boards around town, like at grocery stores or convenience stores. Also ask any business in town if they will let you post a flyer in their stores. Then when you get a few customers, tell them you'll give them a dollar off their next bike repair if they refer a friend. (Make sure the one they refer mentions his name so you'll know who to credit with the dollar off.) Pretty soon you'll have more business than you can handle! Good luck!

    Print out some flyers with your address/phone number. You know those bulletin boards on random stores? Put one there maybe. With those ripaway phone number strips on the bottom :) And word of mouth is good too. Good luck.

    Start by charging your friends a little bit,

    do not under estimate the power of the word of mouth.

    You're just 13, in no time you'll find your hands full if you're that good. Keep it up.

    Print an ad and distribute it in your local supermarket or hang them on trees.
