    This company sounds crazy.

    If you had time I would make up a bunch of copies and go to aparking lot and put on every car in site.

    This guy will either get tired of all the pi$$ed off people calling him about putting stuff on their cars or he will get a bunch of really cheap people wasting his time by offering to pay him $10.00 per visit.

    Good Luck

    Grow up. I agree this is pointless and will fail. However, he should not worry himself over this guy. If he had time to be out delivering this guys flyers for fun, why wouldn't he be out delivering his own for money.

    I thought I read a post on here a little while ago about someone thinking of doing this approach, I wonder if it is them?
    Maybe someone else will remember it as well, who knows, you guys may be in the same area.

    I think the point of it was he just wanted to get them to call, and he would still have to approve the price, and wasn't accepting all of them.

    sounds like he will get some calls, but a whole lot of calls just wasting his time in my opinion. definitely a different approach.

    I just can't imagine letting a customer or potential customer dictate the price of your service. I don't even drop the gate for less than $30.00.

    I like your style! I would find some kids and invest a couple hours at a mall parking lot with each kid passing out 750 of the copied ad in 2 hours. Imagine the phone calls!!! Your cost. 3 kids @ $7/hr, copying (if you hunt around and look for a special $112.50, the headaches for your competition priceless!
