Default Re: Another ad version

According to Martin B, he had a butcher friend who had a shop. He designed one page for the butcher and sold 10 biz card ads on the back to other local biz, printed up 1,000 black and white flyers locally ($100) and charged each advertiser $50. Did it in a day, had $400 left over.

The butcher signed an agreement to let Martin do this for a year.

My thinking is you can skip the butcher and sell 8-10 ads on each side, Gotprint charges $215, shipping included, for 2,500 full color flyers. Sell the ads for $100 each = $2,000 minus costs = approx. $1,800. Divvy up the flyers between those who bought an ad, for each of them to stick in the bag when someone buys something. You now have 20 biz promoting each other.

Maybe you could even sell the ads for more.... Rinse and repeat,


P.s. If you sell a lot of ads, instead of a flyer, make a "directory style" newspaper. Start out with a 4 page paper, build out from there.

This company makes printing a paper very affordable.
