Ah, yes... the slow months.
My advice would be to partner up with your local Chamber of Commerce for advertising, etc. Look in your local phone book for associations, organizations, etc. and send them promo materials. Do this weekly. Marketing and advertising are the two most important methods of getting yourself out there. If you have an employee or two, have them go around to some of the local office buildings and banks and deliver promo items and samples.
The SCORE person, I think, gave you bad advice. Talk to your local Small Business Development Center. They have a wealth of resources and contacts to help you out!
