    Have you ever tried placing flyers on automobile windshields at senior centres, local shopping malls, train stations, garden centres etc?. It seems like a great way to distribute alot of flyers quickly but I'm worried about appearing unprofessional, amongst other things. What's your opinion?

    I personally wouldn't recommend putting fliers on peoples cars. I know I have in the past come out of a shopping center and had a flier on my car. I would just toss it on the ground.
    To me it is a lazy way to advertise, and I don't consider it a serious way to advertise.

    I wouldn't do it. Most likely you'll get a call from the shopping center complaining about all your flyer blowing all over.

    Worst part about that is you dont know where that car is going.

    "Hey man! You scratched my car! What's your deal!" I can hear it and see the liability already. I don't know about you, but some of the vehicles I own and drive, I don't appreciate people even getting too close to them, let ALONE touching them. And I MEAN that!

    No way, just think how pissed you get when you find one on your car.
