    I just had a local self storage company say that they would like to do some co-op advertising in the spring. Has anyone ever co-oped before? How did it work out for you? Do you think a self store company would be a good company to do it with or does that not matter much? Thanks...

    I think that would be fine. I have thought the same and have tried to convince others to do this with me. A friend (does concrete work) of mine said he would, but not until after I had the design work done. I can't convince dad (tax return prepartion) to do it with me though. I was just going to have their services printed on the back side of some door hangers or flyers. I would be nice to share the cost (50/50) of the print and cost of delivery.

    Hi Trinity Lawn Care, LLC,

    I think the same customer base could use both services.

    Thanks for the input. I think that I will add it as a supplemental thing. I figured that it can't hurt, but I just wanted to hear what others thought first.

    I have advertised with a sprinkler company and a fertilizing company in the past. Since I generally sub both of those items out it worked really well. We were able to split the distribution areas and distributed many more fliers that way.
