Default How I Use Balloons And Advertising To Earn $1,300 Per Month

Here's how it works ...

In a nutshell what I do is sell happy bithday balloons that i buy for a $1 at my local dollar store at 5 different mom and pop corner stores in my area for $4 each balloon, giving the corner store $2 per balloon sold and i tie one of my pizza discount cards at the bottom of the string as a gift, but my major twist is that on the back of my pizza card I have 8 ad spots that I sell to local business owners such as a hair salon, ice cream shop and a auto repair shop, etc. at $100 a spot to be placed on 500 pizza cards and distributed on the balloons as a happy bithday gift item.

Now to keep things simple, lets just say each corner store sells 25 balloons a week or a total of 500 balloons a month at a profit of $1 each to me or $500 profit per month just for the balloon sales and $800 a month from ad sales for a grand total profit of $1,300 per month.

I just wanted to share this idea here to show how you can take two or three diferent businesses and tie them together and create a totally new business and have a hot selling product and service.

Let me know what you think?
