    Flyers for marketing design/print company

    Has anyone had a good experience from printing and distributing flyers for your design and print business?

    If so where was the best place for distribution? What would be the ideal things to have on the flyer to get attention?

    I am thinking of doing some flyers for my business but have heard a lot of stories of people getting absolutely no business or the wrong kind of business.

    Thanks,
    Lance

    I have never had much success with my own flyers. I used the post office to deliver. For our customers it works when they are distributed at the appropriate place like at road running races for running shops.

    That makes sense, I have heard about using the post office which is pretty clever as it stays to your area. I was thinking of getting someone to hand flyers at the robots but if people are anything like me they don't pay much attention to them. Do you have any recommendation on how to get your name out there similar to that of a flyer?

    The best way is referrals from existing customers.

    Ok so word of mouth - I know that is the best advertising. The only problem is I started from nowhere so only have had a few clients, but have had some of that anyway.

    I have no experience in your field, but I have a simple plan that should work. Search for websites you know you can greatly improve. Make a huge super list. Then contact the businesses on the list and see if you can set up appointments. If you spend lots of time and energy on this you are bound to catch fish, perhaps even a whale or two.

    Thanks for the input! That's brilliant advice. I actually did something similar by searching for sites that needed improvement and created a list of email addresses and sent out emailers offering specials, but had no luck with that.

    I think actually contacting the people directly will greatly improve my chances.

    Once you get them to commit to an appointment you halfway there. Obviously be extremely prepared. Research the business history and their future plans. Make sure you impress them with what you know about them. If you manage to do this your chances are greatly improved. Good luck

    Oh I almost forgot. RESEARCH THEIR OPPOSITION

    Thank you very much once again, I will definitely put that all into play.

    By researching their opposition, do you mean kind of see what they have got as their online marketing etc. and use that to convince them they can do better?
