There are always many ways to advertise.

A lot of people these days make Web sites. Some still advertise in the paper.
Banners, fliers, decals on your vehicle, bumper stickers.

There are a plethora of ways you can do. And a lot of them are actually quite cheap.

The cheapest and best way I've always found is word of mouth.

Nothing beats praise from a customer telling everyone they know.

id create a 3 sided pamphlet of your business and drop them off at or near your target customers, apartment buildings, etc.
also, many local newspapers will do an expose' on new businesses, make sure you get one, and make sure your mobile truck, has graphics and phone number to advertise your business
also, if you have stiff competition and want to break into a market, offer a trial basis, FREE, make sure you do a few things better than anyone, and offer the first time,,free, this is excellent advertising.
place an ad in the newspaper.
