Yeah steve... it is... Sorry I havent posted in a while, we've been slammed with work, with the marketing gig... the clothing company is really close to launching... and the phone started ringing for landscape and lawn work... on top of that my daughter wants me to coach her tee ball team... and now, since we are sponsoring a team, we have to design the advertisements for everything.... good thing business is not just done between 8 and 5 anymore. Right? But yeah, I figured I try to help out our forum friends by offering them a service that helped me grow close to 40% last year... what we did, we designed a 4x6 postcard thru gotprint.com... the prices are ridiculously cheap.... and stated mailing them to local businesses and developments... we used 4x6 cause it cuts the postage down to .26 each... so its alot easier on the wallet... plus got print offers 5000 postcards for less than $200.00 and the quality is unbelievable... you design everything... then you use me to create the database for who you want to reach... its an awesome idea, and lower in price than most websites... plus with me being in the business, Ill try to filter out any leads that sound questionable... It really reaches your target market..

Ok so right now you are focusing on getting the proper mailing list for the lawn care operator?

Did you put together a website for this yet?

You should get one of your designers from your clothing line to design some postcards too and then you really would be able to offer a lot of services!

There is a lot of graphic design and marketing work requested on this site that I don't know if it is all getting done. You should tell your designer to check the forum here for more work.

I would really like to see a forum member here try out your services and see how doing the targeted mailing can really help them increase business.

So would I steve, So would I... I really think this would benefit anyone looking to grow their business... Ive been pricing the competition out and they run anywhere from $186.00 per 1000 to $214.00 per 1000... I wanna make it available to our guys cause we are starting to get busy with it. You guys dont wanna wait too long, everything takes time... and you will blink your eyes and the season will be upon us... Also, Id be willing to entertain the thought of doing some design work for some of the guys here... Private message me or email me at allaspects@mac.com... Steve... its good to see im not the only one thinking about work on a sat night!!! lol
