Hi, i don't think it hurts to do a leaflet drop, but i would say put a postcard type thing in newsagents windows, local Librarys, Local community centres, antwhere basiaclly that women are likely to go, it all helps.

Did A leaflet frop and got good results - but not immediately, people hang onto them and I was getting calls months later.

Bit of advice - KISS keep it stupid, simple. People only scan info so put brief info on what you do, and what makes you different from your competition.

I did a leaflet drop when I opened my first salon - very cheaply - basically just said 'special opening offer - nail enhancements £XX name, address and phone number - got my family and friends to post flyer through every letter box within half a mile of salon and had a good response which led to the best advertising of all - 'word of mouth' - worked for me!!

Great advise Ange. I've only just started out and put ads in the local newspapers on the Costa del Sol. The ads all go out this week so hoping to get some response....will take on board your tips about leaving flyers in the ladies etc. never thought of that as we have loads of bars and restaurants down here!

Bo..I'm in the same boat as you...feel a bit lonley down here in Spain, but isn't this website is fantastic for the friendliness and encouragement they give...really glad I came across it.

The best response I got was from an advert in my car window, I tried loads of other ways, most of what has been suggested here but the car definitely got the most clients

Can we have a look at your site? I had a look on your profile and it's I don't think it's listed.

Thanks

I did a flyer drop of 300 when I first started out - even enclosed a £5 discount voucher with it and still did not get even one call from it. My main job is as a Marketing Manager, and my flyers looked fab (although I say so myself!!!!), but I was told that they looked expensive, and that potential clients may look at them and bin them without even looking at my pricelist on the basis that I would be too expensive :(

95% of my clients have found me from my website. I set it up within a week, put myself onto all the search engines, wedding websites, local company registers etc I could find, and now whenever someone types in "mobile nail technician, Wrexham / and / or Wales, there I am - first on the list. :D

The remainder of clients are mainly from word of mouth or from the free one-liner ad I've got in Yellow pages and Yell.com

I'm about to re-jig my website and my brochures to include Creative services and once it has been done I'm doing a mail-out to all the local companies where I know have a lot of women working, and have a notice board, so that my posters can be pinned up. (councils, hairdressing salons, building societies, banks, supermarkets, even laundrettes).

Whenever I go out to pubs and restaurants I take my brochures to leave in the ladies! I've even been known to go into ladies' changing cubicles in shops and leave a wadge of brochures in each cubicle :o

Wearing my uniform and having nicely decorated nails always works wonders for me when I go shopping - I choose my check-out wisely (look out for a lady who looks like she takes pride in her appearance) I always get comments about my nails when it comes to signing the credit card slip, at which point I whip out a few business cards that are, rather conveniently, placed in my purse.

Offer discounts for group bookings and give gift vouchers once a while to your regular loyal clients - it makes them feel really appreciated.

Sorry, I've gone on & on :o

Can you tell I'm in marketing?! :D

Good Advice! Well done!
