    how do we all advertize cost effectivly, I pass out flyers but watch out for the post office they takem them out of the boxes and threaten to fine you 300 a flyer, how are you all getting the company name out there

    I have done flyers, adds, news letters, sponsorships, BIG post cards.....all yeilded little or no results. This year I had a VERY nice flyer made up listing the services preformed and left an area to hand write in a price for the job. Wedged the flyer behind the mailbox flag and off to the next one. It was a little time consuming but I got more calls than ever before.

    it is a federal crime to put anything in anybodies mail box. Make some nice door flyers and go door to door. Become a door to door salesman selling your service. It sucks, but its a cheap and effective way. This is my first year, and its working.

    I doubled my client base this year, half with a newspaper ad and half with mailers. Money well spent to me,

    how did you do the mailers? Did a company do it for you? What was cost? thanks, that sounds like a good idea.
