Advertising Help!!!!

Hey guys...
Bottom Line.........what is the most effective way of advertising for you guys.....

I keep seeing flyers...flyers..flyers...

I am confused though....do you guys actually just hang them on the door....put them on mailboxes...mail them....

We put about 100 out...on mailboxes....got one call...and come to find out....about 70 of the 100 were collected by the post office...and we were told we cant hang on the mailbox...without postage....i knew you couldnt place inside..but didnt know about the outside...thingy...

Any responses will help...please help.....i need some business...


lol

Yeah, get them to the front doors. Yes, you have to walk through it. You need the exercise anyway, right?

Paperboxes sometimes work, but alot of that stuff gets trashed or stolen by the competition.

In this business, YOU have to go to THEM. Most of the time they will only seek you out on a referral.

Good luck.

Only 100 flyers?
I put out 7500 myself my first spring - then 2,000 more in the fall.
Put mine on the front door where they would not blow away.
If you're not doing jobs, do something to get them comming in.
It aint magic - just work

If you put out 100, you got the average response. 1% is about right.

Last year I stuck them on mailboxes and in doors. Didn't like doing it that way.

This year I bought bags and hung them on doorknobs. I really hate putting out flyers, but I really want specific neighborhoods so this works best for me.
