On a beautiful summer day in June my Aunt Ginny found a marketing flyer on her front doorstep. It was from George Hill, a local handyman, plumber, electrician, painter; you name it.
This flyer won dozens of new customers for George and if you can write poetry, you can do the same for your business.
A Unique Approach
Have you ever read a flyer that made you smile? This one did just
that. And it got results. George acquired dozens of new customers quickly
with this attention-getting flyer– and still counting.
I needed some work done on my deck and after reading his flyer I
called George. He came to my house, gave me an estimate and I hired
him. He did a great job! I gave George’s flyer to my next-door
neighbor and George acquired another customer.
This one flyer made the rounds of my neighborhood and George was busy with work for the next three months.
