Default Re: Seeking idea for $50-$100 small business services or products to offer.

Here's 3 I've used successfully in the past and have recently been helping some UN-employed people with;

1) PIZZA-KARDS - A business card sized card. Local Pizzeria agrees to accept a "Kard" that allows Kard-Holders to purchase 20 - 2 for 1 Pizzas. Kard is sold to business owners for $10ea to give to their employees as a "Goodwill Gift". These can also be sold door-to-door however, biz owners usually purchase more than 1 at a time. (Milk Co bought 230, Furniture Mfg bought 160 etc) 1,000 Kards cost $50. Sell all 1,000 = $10,000

2) FREE OIL CHANGE CARDS - Double-Size business cards. 2 Auto Repair Shops (on either side of a small town) provide "4 Free Oil Changes". 8 FREE Oil Changes to consumers. Card sells for $20. 1,000 "Double Cards" cost $80 Sell all 1,000 = $20,000

3) TV CHANNEL GUIDES - 8h x 5w cards printed both sides & laminated. Local Hotels agree to place "Guides" in all their rooms. "Guides" show the local TV Channels (which are different than those at their homes) "Pizza Ad" usually on front. 6 ads on back (Restaurants, Gift Shops, Realtors) A 26 week program. Pizza Ad on front sells for $520 ($20/wk for 26 wks) Ads on back sell for $260ea ($10/wk for 26 wks) 10% discount for taking 2nd Hotel
