  1. Make sure your flyers and business cards are done right! It’s worth it to spend a little more to have them looking way more professional, and eye catching. I’ve had my experiences, and its just not worth it to do it cheaply. Than, once you get them done well, put them out EVERYWHERE! Literally, on doorknobs, windshields, especially in older aged areas. Possibly some stores wont care if you put down some business cards or flyers on the counter, as long as its not competition with them. Good Luck, wishing you much success!

  2. Right here is the right blog for anyone
    who would like to understand this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I
    personally will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a
    topic that has been written about for ages. Wonderful stuff, just great!
