Sounds like the rubber bands are a great idea We will have to try that in our west side shop we are having a little of a hard time getting the word out in west G.A.

That's my only way of getting tourist in my area to get me some work. Those are my target people that come to the cottage and don't want to spend the weekend doing yard work. I have got most of my calls from them

Justin,

What is your view on how the best ways you have found so far to get their attention? Which method were you referring to?

Here's an idea -
create your flyer/ad/postcard.
Place it in a zip-lock baggie with a few of those decorative white stones.
Throw them in driveways.
They'll stay protected, weighted down, and get noticed.
Faster than mailbox hangies or door hangars.

No, don't. Don't litter. Don't put garbage in people's driveways or yards. Just don't. It's trashy, classless and pure, straight-up ghetto.

Not only would I make sure to NOT hire you but if you throw garbage in my yard and I'll make you miserable. MISERABLE!

Sorry, I didn't mean to rip the newbie a new one. I just hate, hate, HATE this idea. It's not the first time we've dealt with it before and I've dealt the same devastation on another forum.

It's just not a good thing to do. I imagine it's also illegal. Fines for littering are $300 per incident in this area. Imagine getting busted for throwing 200 baggies. That's $60,000!

Since the grass is growing anytime we see a house that could use some work we attach it to their mailbox flag. They have to take it off, even to just throw it away. LOL
I have put a hole in the corner of the advertisement and put a rubber band through the hole then through the rubber band, no staples needed.

That's what I've been doing, and hanging 'em on the door.

Aaaaand yeah, what Mark said. It seems to me it shows every reason not to hire the company that does that.

Hanging on mailboxes is just as bad as IN...all parts of the mailbox are off limits as per my friend's father that has worked for the post office for 30 years.

It's hard enough to get a call from fliers, why make it worse by pissing off the homeowners?
