As Ron LeGrand says, “It’s always easier to ask forgivness then permission!” The pumps usually have an advertising placard on top of the pump. Self service states are good for that, like here in PA, since no one is really watching you. I slide one in to the base. Never leave a stack anywhere. It’s too easy for someone to grab them and throw them in the garbage. It happens all the time. I leave them on trash cans at supermarkets and Walmart. Sometimes I leave them on top of newspaper vending machines. Once I got a call to be careful, that I could be sued for advertising. Payphones are good. Resturants are good too. Anywhere you think people will see them. They may not call right away. Sometime they hold on to them.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the right kind of business card to make up stating I am a real estate investor? I don’t really have a niche yet, but I currently have a 2 family and am interested in mobile home notes and other types of property where I can get it wholesale. Thanks

Here is a cheap way to get great looking double sided business cards. Don’t waste the space on the back of your card, it is like a mini billboard to tell your story. Go to onlineprints.com. You can design your card with MS publisher and upload it. They make them glossy for no extra charge. I had car magnets made a while back and the guy sent me a proof. I took the proof and changed it and used it for my card front. The back is simply a background color with text.
When you put them out, be mindful of store clerks that throw them out, so don’t put piles out. I like self service gas stations, ATM’s and bulletin boards. Alot of people hold on to them and will call you 5-6 months down the road. Some call you immediately. Unless you spend all day covering a whole county, I would not count on big results. Keep a stack in your car, wallet and put them out everywhere you go.
