1st time poster, but I like reading all of the helpful input you guys have on a numerous amount of subjects.
My post is about grabbing more customers/public attention/etc.
Where I live, we have wind... a lot of wind... I have been in fencing for a couple of years, and have recently broke off on my own. Business is good, not the fantastic numbers that every start up dreams of attaining, but I won't be going out of business.
My question is, in everyone's opinion (not necessarily just my fencing brethren) is it ok to go stick my card, and maybe a rough estimate, in the front door of peoples house who have a blown over fence? (which there are plenty of here)
Is it rude? Would a customer take offense to it? or would they see that someone may have taken the initiative for them, and had a quick estimate finished and ready to go? I would like to have another 4-8 customers a month (depending on the size of the project, material availability, etc.)
Thank you for everyone's input, it is greatly appreciated.
