You may want to try Craig's list if it available in your area. It is free and has a huge following of people looking for all kinds of items and services. Also, advertise in the local community paper and for good word of mouth, offer a free housecleaning as a prize at one of the local organizations fundraiser, like a PTA or church or something that draws a lot of people. Do a good job and word will circulate around town.
Several folks on my Facebook friend list use Facebook to advertise themselves... and Facebook is free.
Another free ad site is Kijiji.com. It's divided into states and major cities, so once on the site, click on your state and choose the city (or a couple of cities) closest to you.
You're allowed as many ads as you can manage, and up to three image uploads per ad, last I knew. Best to you in your new endeavor!

What is the best way of marketing a new cleaning business?
In the name of your business, be sure it tells what it is that you clean. Even your question doesn't give us that information.
