I am not big on the whole Daylight Savings Time notification just because we all have cell phones, cable boxes & self adjusting clocks nowadays, it seems a little "old hat". Having said that, I might throw a DST post up on our FB business page being it's free to do & can't hurt.

No. Spending the time and effort to tell or advertise the time change is coming is getting about as old as advertising "How much is your home really worth?" nowadays.  Everyone agent is doing it. Do something original and set yourself apart.
