maybe this belongs in the elements of business forum, but i'm posting here because theres more activity. i had this idea today about how to get new customers. why not give each new customer a t-shirt with your company name on it when they sign up for service. i don't think anyone would just throw it away. most likely if they didn't want to wear it, they'd give it to a relative who would. then you would get free advertizing and when other people noticed the shirt, they might be inclined to ask about it. that should stir the pot a little and get your name buzzing around more often. i just did a little searching online and found that at atleast one website, you can get 48 white t-shirts with one color screen printed for a little over 200.00 at that quantity they were like 4.50 a piece. that might not be a bad way to help encourage word of mouth advertizing without seeming to be advertizing. after all you could call it a free gift for signing up. seems like a win-win situation to me.
