I use them to target very specific addresses. I find clients that I want and I start sending them a post card about once a month... It forces them to see my company name, this way when they decide to can their current guy or hire one for the first time my business name is the first name that comes to mind. I used to pass out business cards, leaving them on doors. I get calls from people who's doors I left a business card on six months ago.

That makes allot of sense. How many months do you do it. Mail or door hangers. Im guessing mail.

like doc says specific addresses & more than once

ive always thought dabbing or spraying on some essential evergreen type oil on the cards giving them a good outdoor scent might help

Postcards and signs

I built my business with postcards and signs. I use signs to garner new business and follow up with postcards every year to encourage renewals. Then I call a few days after the postcard arrives. So they know who I am when I call and are willing to talk to me. It works.
Went from $0 to $650,000 in six years.
But I have been called a liar on this forum before. But I am not lying.
