    leaflet and focus on fb advertising ie posting to free sites on there etc
     
  3. Yeh tried Facebook and got nowt. Got fed up of people asking me to 'like' stuff. How rude is that? I can make my own mind up, whether it be like, dislike or the more usual indifferent. Narcissistic twats.
    Facebook's not for me.

    What's the success rate with flyers? I've heard rumours of .1%? Don't want to drive around for a week to get 5 jobs. It's easier for you town dwellers me thnks.

    did you put special deals [with photos] on the facebook selling groups ?, well worth a go. if you got nowt first time around ,youve got to work out why -you didnt try hard enough to make it work is the usual reason . facebook is a whole lot easier than delivering flyers .
     
  6. Don't be scared. People are friendly and quiet often bored and welcome a chat.

    Necessity is the mother of invention.
    if you need the money, you'll have no choice but rata tat tat.
    Got my mrs into it now. Hopefully a pretty face will sway them.
     
  7. People out here don't really use fb as much as elsewhere. Most of my customers are recently retired professionals, rich farmers, middle aged housewives. Just not the fb type. I could be wrong though.
    Might try advertising parish magazines. I've been asked to clean a church. Hopefully the Lord will look on me favourably.......

    if you do go out leafletting, wear sleigh bells attached to your heels.[i saw a set of these in Poundland not long ago] you want to draw attention and theyd work a treat

    , no skulking along the traditional way . possibly have a mini plastic ladder glued to your shoulder?[sold in pet shops for use in bird cages]

    iv often thought that a mini siren / musical horn would be ideal to have wired in my van, under 5 MPH it starts to sound automatically perhaps - something sounding akin to an ice cream vans chimes rather than a bomb alert .
