Thanks for asking.

* Search for Lawrence's posts on this forum. He did very well with curb painting and installing security peep holes. His approach often got 80-90% of an entire neighbourhood to buy his services.

* Have you tried out fliers? Should definitely get you 2-3% response rate. For every 100 fliers you deliver to homes, 2-3 of them should call you for your services.

* After those initial sales, you can try referral marketing. Asking the buyers to recommend you to 3 of their neighbours.

* Contacting home owner associations is a good idea. Also contacting the local fire department and getting some sort of an endorsement from them works very well.
