    Me personally I put an ad in the paper and I put one on the internet. I would make a couple ads up and see what one appeals to you more.

    I put fllyers up in all the local stores. They don't have to be fancy but they should have the "phone number pull tab things" on the bottom of the flyer IMO.

    Word of mouth is the way to go. Quality before quantity :D I would do what Mercer said but make up flyers that you would put in mailboxes of neighbors and houses close to. The reason I say that is because you can only go so far with an atv before people get angry and cops get suspicious..

    Ok thanks alot

    Ok I'll make sure to put those on it

    Yah, well i'm not worried about cops, me and my buddy pull a sled with our friends on it behind our quad and 3 wheeler all winter and nobody says anything.

    Yah, well I could go door to door, it's a joke with all some of these stupid law's and all these dumb lawsuits, now in michigan in 2 years to drive a jet ski by yourself you have to be 16, right now it is 14:nod:so I can drive mine alone with my buddy riding his but when it changes to 16, lol i'll be 16 so it just sucks for younger kids.

    Thats true. I didnt think of that but door to door would definitely be the smarter choice...

    Lol. Thats true, in the winter I drive my quad fairly far and the cops are much more lenient when they see a snowplow.

    I had alot of success using bold colors and big lettering last year. I also tack a card holder with a business card version of the same thing right beside it for easy access. The less a prospective customer has to think the better. Even if they crab it while in a rush, there going to have my number in there purse or pocket when they remember "I need a new plow guy".


    Interesting story...I was waiting for a pizza one night at a local convenience store and witnessed two people crab a card on there way out the door. They barley even looked at the flyer....I suspect they saw the plow picture and BAM.....just what I wanted. I heard from both of them within a weeks time.
