for him for the past month, so I suggested that he create and print out 500
8 x 10 sales flyers and I will help him get them distributed door-to-door
and he did and gave them to me last week.
So, last week I took one of his flyers and went to other businesses in a
5 mile radius of my friends computer business and told them our business
is going to be distributing 500 8 x 10 flyers door-to-door on Thursday and
if they were interested we would include their pre-printed 8 x 10 flyer for
just $40, so to make a long story short I was able to get 9 other businesses
So, on Wed. I went back to each business to collect payment and flyers and
long story short again I lost 1 business, but 8 business were still on
board and paid me and gave me their flyers.
That's 8 x $40 = $320 minus $60 I paid my 13 year old son to distribute the
flyers door-to-door, which left me a profit of $260.
What my son did was he stapled all the flyers together and then he just left
them on porches or rolled them up and stuck them in door knobs or stair railings.
I know this isn't a huge profit business idea, but the goal here was to get
my friend some cheap advertsing and also to pay it forward and help some
other local businesses get some low cost advertising and the reason it worked
so well was because it was only costing each business around $60 each with the
cost of printing and distribution.
I hope this idea helps sparks a money making idea for someone.
To your success,
