    I have a few local businesses allowing me to leave mini postcards (yes I meant mini) at their place of business. One of them is a very popolar sandwich shop, another is where I get my hair done, massage therapy, and an antique shop. Idea is to print out cards probably 2.5x3 with my doorhangers info on them.

    My question is:
    Has anyone else done this and if so what has been the response you have gotten? All of these places are high traffic areas and I know the owners of all of them, so they are putting them right by the cash register in a easy to see place.....

    We have some scattered at different places in town. You won't get a lot of response but it's a fairly inexpensive easy way to get your name out there.

    Hit places like your local greenhouses and farm market. That is when people have that "mindset", and will be more likely to call you. The "massage therapist" place is a good idea, because these are the type of people who tend to spend money. They like having services done for them. Some of the pricier restaurants are a good way to go, too.

    I have a great client that works at a local and well-known retail nursery. She hands out my business cards to people expressing interest in paid landscape/maintenance services.
