That is fantastic! Make sure when you get new calls coming in, that you ask where they initially heard of you from so you can track which of your marketing is working!

yeah i am trying to keep track of my marketing as best as i can, i have a notebook
what it keeps track of;
  • *Cost
    *date
    *website hits
    *amount of material
    *address list it was sent to
    *all material that was included
    *if something is returned i scratch the address to remove from my list
    *who called (so i dont keep spamming them and focus on upselling them)
also have a spreadsheet to keep track of my website hits alone. If i put signs up or hand out a lot of business cards ill write it down along with hits of site and date


ALSO something REALLY cool i found out today with my business cards

If i spread them out the look like a sunflower, it REALLY stands out on the bulleton board, i have attached a picture

they stand out from other cards because they are black while almost every other card is white

That is cool.

I wonder, would it be worthwhile to have different web domains for your different marketing methods so you could really track which domain is hit?

What size business do you recommend doing this? DO they have to be a certain size or no?

Any size business will work. The idea is just to use it as a testing method. That way you can see what is working well. Then you know what marketing strategy to upscale.
