    How important were handbills to your business when you started out?

    Personally, for me, I'd have never been able to get my business off the ground without handbills.

    Would you have been able to start your business if handbills had been outlawed by city ordinance?

    In 1997 they were what got me started, that, a 1957 Cub Cadet (being restored) and a Homelite trimmer. Now most of the community's have ordinances against it.

    door hanger, or flier left on the door.

    One of the best forms of getting your routes concentrated. Some cities around here you have to buy permits...25.00.

    He should have just called it a door hanger. I thought he was talking about hand written receipts but I couldn't figure out why that would be outlawed:rolleyes:

    Hit me the same way. :laugh:

    They really helped me start to get business & they're still a very valuable form of advertising, for me in my area.
