Business flyers

So in order to get more business next year I was thinking about putting flyers out. I have a friend that owns a printing shop so I would get him to do the printing. I would go door to door on the smaller house and just put the flyers in the mail boxes AFTER THE MAIL MAN on the larger ones. Printing would be around 350 for 5,000 of them is that a good deal? Also what do you think of the design?




EDIT thinking about getting rid of the 10% off. Or doing something else to attract other new customers like 25$ added to your invoice when you refere someone.

It doesn't matter when you put them in the mailbox, it's still illegal.

What's the 100% American bit about? lol

Putting anything in the mailbox without postage is illegal.

Here in NZ its not illegal to put things in peoples mail box , also the mail box is on the curb side not at the house. $350 for 5000 flyers is fantastic, i just got 5000 flyers printed for spring and they set me back $750 to get them delivered is another $350 fingers crossed it works. I like your flyer its clean and crisp. 100% american by this do you mean localy owned?

If only...


To the OP:
- Bright red font, without at least some amount of outlining, looks terrible on most any background, especially green. It can be a very tough read.
- As soon as you can, dump the free wix account and get a legitimate, professional-looking domain name. It's only a few bucks a month and we're years past the idea of "So, to visit my site, just go to geocities.com/business/free/~mylawnsitecompany.". Check out Wix's premium offerings.

Im guessing you have to be 100% American to be considered a credible business?

100% kinda a selling point. I am American, I go out of my way to make sure it looks good, even if it ends up with me losing a little paid time over it.

So are you saying that people should choose you because you were born here?

That is not a selling point at all, and if we have to ask what it means so will your clients.

So when potential clients ask what it means, what are you going to tell them? "I'm an American"???

In all honesty, it makes no sense.
