I will wait a little bit and then send another one....etc. You can send out a ton of flyers and not get one response, so make sure to send to a more targeted area. This way, they do receive it and you are spreading the word!! Don't get discouraged because you may not get a call right away, but maybe a few months down the line...if you know what I mean.
I agree with Robin...lots of work it takes and determination!! It's a consistent thing. You have to keep at it.
I'm glad you mentioned mailings. I've read multiple threads wondering if this approach worked successfully.
Have your mailings been to residential PCs or commercial? If commercial, how do you deal with companies that have administrative support on site and may view your mailing as a threat rather than additional support thus not passing it on?
Your assistance is appreciated! Thanks :-D
