Yes, I would recommend a website, but you can use a cheap service like Freewebs.com, where they supply the template and all you really do is add copy and images/content. You can spend just $20-$50 a year at one of those places compared to a monthly fee of $10- $100's.
As far as marketing to Dr.'s and Salon's, I find the best marketing is still face to face. You can visit a place of business and ask to talk to the buyer, or if it is busy, leave a brochure/ catalog/ or postcard with your information/ website.
Also I would join a local networking group, because you will learn about different Salon's and Dr.'s. If you don't have time to start a blog, you can approach bloggers or websites and offer to write articles for them, with a link to your site OR your name and occupation at the end of the article.
I use Freewebs for one of my sites, a directory for eco-conscious products & stores, www.findagreenstore.com good luck

The signs you are looking for are called "bandit" signs and are made from Coroplast, a corrugated plastic material. I don't think you are going to be able to find them for $1.00 each, though.
I can help you with this and I offer a web-based Fast Quote service. Once you are on the page listed below, use the drop down menu, and click on 4mm Coroplast. Fill in the size, quantity, etc and submit your information and I will respond quickly.

Before you go posting a "yard sign", check with your town/city by-laws to see if you are allowed to post such things. Our town has limitations that could see us fined if we don't follow their inane rules.
