Good information. I am going to the library today to get the book Gorilla Marketing. I have heard of it before but never read it. I really need to get up and going and at least one client in the next few days.

I would love to rekindle this thread to know, now that some time has passed, whether the postcards and flyers that were mentioned in this thread worked out for each of you!

I'd like to know how this worked for others as well. I'm considering targeting smaller brick and mortar businesses in my area and considering flyers to connect with them.

I think flyers can work but like all marketing techniques, flyers target certain markets or individuals. I've done the flyer thing and had absolutely no success with it. However that being said and even though I toss out flyers myself, now and then I come across a flyer that I keep.

In my opinion it's a hit-or-miss thing. But everything is always worth a try!

I've been in business for almost 2 months now. Last week I received a phone call from my first customer. I asked how she found me after I completed a project for her. She saw my flyer at the mall.

I plan to send out a letter to potential client with my brochure and business card included. I am also going to send out postcards. I know you have to keep sending marketing info to the potential client and it takes time to get your name out there. But I think letters and cards are worth doing.

In my experience, postcards just get thrown away.

I think it depends on a number of things like age, demographic and what kind of people live where you are.

I'm reluctant to send bulk digital flyers - as someone who has received them from others I have very quickly dismissed them. That might just be me and others might have had success with them?
