Arrow Trick or treat

Hi guys I got a question. For halloween I don't have any buisness cards but should I cut a copy of one of my flyers and staple it to the candy to promote my buisness? I want your ideas so please tell me!

Why would you do that. You give the candy to kids not to there parents.

No.

Kids will tear it off and throw it on the ground.

Parents will find it tacky.


Maybe it could work as a promotion on it's own, but I'd be offended by that if I saw it mixed in with my kid's loot.
But that's just me.

Ya I just probably will put one of my signs in my yard instead cuz if the parents walk there kids house to house, or drive them etc. I could still get some interests. I should put signs out in my yard because I have two compettions in my neighborhood 2 adults vs 13 year old kid game on compettions

think of a small inexpensive gift for the kid's parents and attach your card/flier to that. So when the kids get a treat so do the parents. That would or might draw their attention.

You can put a big sign in front of your house, or at the curb of your lawn!


You can get a recording going, try to sound like a ghost and say;
"HAVE A SPOOKY leaf removal FOR ONLY $100 for a LIMITED TIME**BOOOOOO!"

You could set up some mower horror scene on your front lawn too LOL that would make them remember your company.
