Just was wondering if anyone had any ideas they could share with me about local marketing and what has worked for them.I have a business that I started over 2 years ago and went full time with last year. I have used mailers, flyers, and postcards with no success. I got one call from a mailer last year and that did not turn into any new business.What about door to door cold calling? I have a friend who has been in business over 20 years who swears by it. I have tried it with him and no success either. Would you purchase something from someone peddling door to door at your business location? I also put a listing in a Yellow Pages that gave me no response either. All in all I feel all of my advertisement dollars have been primarily wasted.The other thing I have done is join a local Chamber of Commerce and was part of a now defunct business referral group that met for lunch every week. I did finally get some business from that group, but none from the Chamber and it was expensive to join.Any other ideas anyone can share with me?
