Im currently working mobile doing shellac nails, spray tanning, tattooing and ear piercing in the kent area. I have just moved here an havnt met any new people yet so the top advertising aspect has gone out of the window. I know flyers can prove pricey so wondered if anyone has had success in posting these through letterboxes? I have ordered some car magnets but they havnt been delivered yet, anybody have any success with these? Any ideas would he great. Thanks x
I find what helps me is advertising on gumtree, Facebook, Yell and myhairdresser.com.
I make my own leaflets, pricelist's etc and have a few Business cards / leaflets in supermarkets and shops in local areas. Also having privelist's in bridal shops help
There is a huge thread on here crammed with loads of idea's. Have a look and you'll find loads of ideas
Good luck :) xx
Facebook and Gumtree were the best form of advertising for me set up
a business page and post pictures of your work and price lists etc. Also vista print are cheap for business cards/leaflets but you can make your own price lists to begin with to hand out post through doors in the areas you cover and leave in shops/hairdressers

Leaflet drops are definitely worth doing. You might have to do a lot to only get a few calls but then the word of mouth can start. People like a price list, it looks professional and they can see whether your prices suit them without having to go out of their way to find out. Leave your price lists everywhere possible, eg Kids play centres. Talk to local shops and see if you can leave some on the counter. always have some on you and give them to people you get talking to.
Once you start getting clients, be sure to leave them a handful and ask them to give to friends.
Depending on the leaflet size you can do them cheap ish. I started out with vista because the design was ready done and that suited me but I've recently had some designed specially and I will be using bestprinting.co.uk. I've had a sample pack and they're nice quality and a good price. But have a good google and see what you can find.
Good luck with everything, once you start advertising yourself I'm sure you will Be surprised at how quickly you can grow. X x x

Word of Mouth is always best and definitely cheapest!
However I find a small discount for both the referee and the referred help the process along a bit better!

Not meaning to dampen your excitement. I found leaflets, cards etc didn't do much for me. But it may be different for you. I hope it works out for you
