    So I just noticed my ad that I thought was in the local paper is not there. They said they dont know why it didnt run and went on to say it will be a couple weeks before they can get it in there :mad:. This leaves me no choice but to go out and drop flyers of in paper boxes (yes I know the laws about doing this) as this is now my only way to get my name out there for the next couple weeks,
    Does anyone have an example or template I could use to make some flyers up?

    Thank you

    It IS legal to put them in the paper boxes with a permit which can be purchased at city halls, it's illegal to put them in the mailboxes.

    What are you advertising? Little late for snow. lol

    Talk to the paper and get a reduced cost if it was suppose to be in there. That is costing you business. Tell them you are going to advertise on line if they don't reduce it. That will get them going.

    Pass out the fliers on Sunday morning. After the paper goes through, but before the customer gets it out of their mail box. That day they have the time to look through it.
