Artie,

I was working at one of my regular stops yesterday and a young woman pushing a baby stroller came by. I shut the mower down as a courtesy, smiled, and said "hello". We began to chat and she pointed to my truck parked a few feet away and said "Those are a great idea!" referring to the "Take a Card" holders.

She then asked if I do work on the next street over. When I said "yes", she said "I thought that was you - I live over there near where you were working."
As she said this she unzipped a pocket on the stroller, pulled out a card, and said "See, I have one of your cards!"

LOL! Awesome!

"I'm going to be calling you for some cleanup work - I don't have time now that I have the baby!"



Three things to learn from this...

(1) Always stop to say hello to hot moms.

(2) Always make it as easy as possible for hot moms to get your number.

(3) Hmmm... maybe that was it.

Artie, yet another compliment on your product...

Last week some asshat did a hit and run on my truck in the two minutes it took me to run into a fast food joint to take a leak.

A witness got his plate for me, so I called the police. When the officer arrived, she walked over and while I started explaining what happened, she asks, "Is this you?" as she takes a card from my holder on the side of the truck. "That's SO cool", she stated, while gesturing to the card holder - "I've never seen anything like that!"

Artie's Business Card Holders - approved by Pittsburgh's finest. LOL!

"Can I take one of your cards?"

"Absolutely!"


Funny. Again yesterday while at another gas station, I noticed (through the truck cap side window) a lady walk over from the other row of pumps. She was obviously focused on the card holder. I kept doing what I was doing and afterward noted that a card had been taken.




Last week while mowing at a client's house, a dog walker stopped and took a card. She didn't see me standing near the back of the truck as she took the card, but when she did, she told me she took a card, and that she lives "down the hill".




I CONSTANTLY hear "That's a GREAT idea!" in reference to the card holder.

I was talking to some roofers who were working on a house I went to for an estimate. They were initially drawn in by my mower on my cargo carrier on the back of the truck, but when they saw the holders, I heard "Hey, Bob you gotta get one of these for your truck!"
We chatted a bit, I gave them the web address for the card holders, and as I was about to leave, the older guy came back and said "I'm gonna take one of your cards - I own a few rentals in the area - maybe I'll give you a call."





These card holders are a really stupid idea.
Your absolutely correct, getting your business name out in front of people who are looking for your service, and willing to give you money is the stupidest idea I have ever heard of!
