So after 3 weeks of laboring over it and making it look nice, I'm having my postcard sized ad printed tomorrow. 500 of them. I am going around my town and the town next door tomorrow after I get them, and attempt to ask various local businesses if they would be interested in hosting some of my fliers, in the hopes that some of their customers may be interested, grab one of my ads, and call me. I will offer them $25 for a referral, if one of their customers hires me. I'll write down the initials of the business somewhere on the corner of the card so all parties will know where the card came from. I was wondering if anyone has any experience doing this, and how it would be appropriate to bring up this kind of conversation. I'm doing the "battery powered mowers and organic fertilizer" thing, so I'm targeting local health food stores and other types of health-related businesses, as well as a couple of nurseries. Also, there are various places around town that let you pin an ad on their corkboard, like the grocery stores and the laundromat. I also have a sister that works at a salon, i'll ask her as well. She has a large regular customer base. I have my CL ad out, have not received any calls yet. http://flint.craigslist.org/fgs/4417366462.html Any advice on this subject would be appreciated.
