Church flyers?

Do you guys think it would be inappropriate to put flyers on car
windsheilds at church parking lots? I know working parking lots
saves a looot of walking!!! Let me know what you think.

hmmmm.... I would much rather go inside the church, sit way in the back, last row... kneel and pray for some lawn customers before I'd flood everyones cars with flyers....

FYI - if you can't handle the 'walking' when advertising, how are you gonna handle the summer months of walking and working...

LCO's = walk a lot.

Why dont you call the church see if they'd let you put a small add in their weekly bulletin?

I've heard that a business card sized ad in church bulletins are about $50-100 a year.

Another story I've heard is:
This old guy used to change churches every 3-4 years. When asked why, his response was "I need some more new clients"

I decided to skip the church lots and hit the local eaterys. i was working
on the fourth eatery, when a cop comes out and informs me of a little
thing called a "solicitation permit", 25.00 fine!! did not get a fine , just
made me remove the flyers!




ROOKIE MISTAKE!

Good move to skip the church parking lots. I would think the people in church might not like that somebody who's not in church is plastering their cars with flyers. I know I wouldn't like it.

be careful with the flier under the wiper, if a lot of them end up blowing in the wind guess who gets the littering fine.
