Default $200 Daily (Curb Painting)!!!!

If anyone wants to see the flyer I use to beat the pants off of the curb painting flyer I'd be happy to send you one.

If you decide to use it DO NOT print it on any color other than white or your response will go down. From posting alone this flyer gets an average response of 2 to 4%. Not bad considering that I charge $39 to do the job.

If you are willing to knock on doors, hand the home owner a full color brochure and tell them why the local police and fire departments endorse your service and ask them which style of address sign they prefer you can write your own paycheck.

After I install a address sign for someone I thank them and give them a flyer that offers a Free ADT or Protect America Home Security System. (Protect America pays you a $300 commission. That's twice what ADT will pay).

If you would like a copy of the Home Security Flyer e-mail me your contact info including your phone and address and I will snail mail it to you.

The curb painting flyer has been around for years. In fact Don Alm told me he was using it way back in the summer of 1965 to make at least $200 a day. He said that it sure beat working construction as most construction workers back in 65 had to work all week long to earn $200.

NightVision Address Signs are what you should consider offering instead of the curb paintings. Why.... Because with the curbs the addresses are often obscured by snow or leafs and parked cars. Plus you have to be right in front of the house you are looking for before you can see the curb painting. With the NightVision address signs you can see them coming or going Day or Night from either end of the street long before you get to the house.

Yes you can earn great income doing this but there are a few problems with it.

For one ... it's outdoor work so chances are you won't want to do it in bad weather. And two... In my opinion, it's not a real business. It's a real job.

If you stop putting flyers out your income stops. That's one reason why I only do it part of the year and invest the rest of my time doing photography and setting up and selling advertising programs (I like the residual income from ad renewals).

If you live in a northern state like I do, this or a deck renewal business can be promoted effectively with flyers this time of year. I can't handle the heat and humidity of the south or the real cold up north in the winter very well so I choose to only work this part time.

If you would like to touch and hold my marketing flyers let me know and I'll snail mail them to you. Just promise you won't post them anywhere on the Internet. I believe in helping people but I do not want to give away my secrets to all of my competitors.
