I kind of agree, but in some communities or some countries, fliers would still work. I think you have to evaluate your own territory, and go from there.
Where I live, fliers dont seem to work. What has helped me is having magnetic signs for my car's doors, word of mouth, and online job hunting. Where I live - is fairly wealthy. (I am NOT! LOL!) I live near the coast in Florida, where a lot of people have money to spare.
NOW: a question for all of you: I had been ordering magnetic signs from one company, because they are cheap. However, you have to REMOVE them every day or they melt in Florida's hot climate. Does anyone know of magnetic car signs that will NOT melt, if you leave them on all the time??? Those car signs have really helped me, but it is a pain in the butt to remove them every afternoon after work.
