    Hi everyone, i designed up this little flyer and am planning on distrubuting them late Feb or early March. Anyone have any advice for me on what to change or add. I tried to add as much info as I could without being cluttered. Im not sure if it is too cluttered or not. I threw in the little bit about me being in college and what not assuming some people might like to help a "starving student". Well any critism is appreciated. Thanks.

    Looks good except I would stop after the services you provide. I wouldn't put in 3 yrs experience and everything after that. Instead I would put something like, friendly, professional service or something. It sounds too personal to me. Just my opinion.

    So you would cut out the entire "about me" section? I thought maybe being personal and on the same level as the client would draw business but maybe your right. It may not be professional enough. Well I am not going to print them for another month in case I have more ideas or need to make changes. Thanks for the reply.

    I would cut out the section about me as well. You also need a big opening line near the top to catch their attention.

    3ys experience is nothing to brag about. Once told to me is to never put less than 10....and I am not telling you to lie. Never mix more than two different fonts and they should compliment each other. Move the coupon to the top...if you want that to be the attention grabber. Take you the "about me" and don't abbreviate "licensed and insured". That a good start. Get the "Guerrilla Marketing" need it and won't be disappointed.

    Hi mrbray101,

    You know it would be interesting to test your initial design on half of the people you distribute them too. You never know, that personal touch might be the edge you are looking for. But you wouldn't know unless you tested it :)

    what!!!! What is that radio. Can I get it on XM while I drive around???

    That is a good point Gopher. I know that you have been pushing for the personal touch lately, and it actually might work really well. Doesn't hurt to run a few test runs to see how it works out
