    Direct Mail $$$$$. Start with fliers and they can be used in other places.

    i ahve put out fliers by the 1000's. They are cheap if you do not count the time that it takes you to put them out. I have a high opinion of my time. I mailed 8,000 post cards this year. The total cost was approximately $2,000. The best estimate that I have for total income generated for the year is +/- $50,000. Not a bad return for the investment.

    KL Squared,
    Would you please answer some questions?The $2k you spent to mail 8k cards:I assume this includes printing and mailing costs.Do you use a mailing service or do you purchase lists and do it yourself?Also,do you mail the flyers or just drive around and deliver them yourself?Thanks.

    Hi Husky,

    One thing to consider if you are mailing, post cards don't have to be opened like flyers so there is a better chance your prospective customer will read what you are sending.
