    Would anyone be willing to share their flyers with the new guy? Trying to be creative but it wouldn't hurt to have some help.

    I just go to the front door at my house and gather them all from the stoop and look them over for 5 seconds max. The ones that catch my interest I read more inside the others go in the trash...

    Replicate the positive... Do not duplicate....

    Look over what caught your attention.

    Who do you want your ideal customer to be?

    We have taken a humorous approach and it appears to be working pretty well.

    We had 20,000 of these go out in a door to door, door hanger bag delivery.

    It seems to work for us.

    Although daveintoledo, The higher end residential I have found look for professionals because they have been screwed by lowballers before.
