    I have a design on flyers that works great. I mean i put out 100 and sign 3-contracts (I bid a little high also) Should i market this design or give it out for free.

    My Brother-in-law calls me one day. He started his own FLoorcovering business. Says he needs work. How am I getting all this work. I told him Flyer's's Flyer's's Flyer's's. But i told him how to design them. OK he does not listen. My sister design a color flyer's and they put out 70 yes 70 flyer's's. I said first you need to put out a thousand, and if you will design the flyer's my way i will pay for them and if they work you pay me back.

    Well. In one month signed four jobs totaling $14,000. The phone has not stopped. As now bought two new van's.

    Anyway what do you think!!!

    I doubt alot of people will be willing to pay for your flyer design. There are alot of free flyer templates and good ideas floating around on this board alone. I would offer it up for free on this board,and help others that are so willing to help you. Or you could put it in your drawer marked:

    I am not going to submit the flyer. But i will give you guidance on how to design the flyer. If you wish you can send it to me and i will tell you if it will work.

    First forget the Bull S*** No crazy designs. No Prices and no Coupons. (this idea Will not work for companies that have been around for awhile.

    Connect with the homeowners. post you address on the flyer and information about you what you do how you get were your at and were your looking to go.


    Note: If you don't ask you will never receive!!!!!!!!! :blob3:

    Rodbite, what do you mean connect with the homeowners? if you dont put a design it will look amateurish. When i design a flyer, people are impressed. When you just put words, it looks like you did not put any thought into it...it seems like you just want their money.

    It would be really unfair if you dont share the flyer with us after leading is like a dog on a leash... :rolleyes:
