Our local big shot started handing out 5 gal. buckets of salt this year (for DIY sidewalks) to all area businesses of interest...buckets are labeled w/ contact info for free refills. "Call this # when empty"...or something like that.

I'm sure he'd be more than happy to deliver me a load of something...but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be salt.

I give all my residential customers a fridge magnet. Those things have payed for themselves a thousand times over. Easy and cheap to make, and better then a business card that just gets lost. Let them add it to the fridge and it will be there whenever they need to call you, or better yet, when giving your number to a friend. I love them and will not go without. Every customer gets one.

We give out, pens, flying discs (Frisbees,) knit caps, billed hats, sweatshirts, bottle openers, Fluid Film and tee shirts.

Some are given to customers with purchases, some are just handed out at trade shows, parades or over the counter. People LOVE free stuff.
