    Hi Printerworkz,
    Like yourself a give out a leaflet for a voucher system.£3.00 voucher with each cartridge fitted with all new components so most of the times i can guarantee the cartridge comes back to me and the second cycle round leaves me only new opc w/b,toner.
    vouchers are for any one not a company name, so i often get back cartridges that have been unused so the person sending them gets the voucher not the company they work. this works well for me.
    Saves me a whole lot of money having to buy new components etc.
    If some one buys 3 full toner sets for a colour machine then i will give them a free drum unit.
    I also offer a free service for cleaning there printers.
    I also have placed adverts in the local papers with small turn over for the cost.
    I have emailed ,faxed using the local internet address sites like yell.com this is a uk phone book with company address tel etc etc.

    The best i have found so far is spending a couple of days dropping of fly leaflets and popping into local goverment premises and getting information about local business in your area and contacts.
    Most of them are very helpful with great results for a few hours work.
    cheers.

    Hello

    I would like to first say that even know that not a lot of people have been using this site. I still rank it up there as being one of the best.

    We have tried to advertise in the local paper with a 20% off coupon and out of a 50,000 house cirulation for the paper we only received 3 coupons back.
    The best thing that we noticed is word of mouth but that can only go so far.
    We are know looking in to a T.V. commercial
    We also have been doing specials Where you buy a set of ink cartridges and your next set is 20% off if it's HP and 50% off if they are Canon, Epson, Brother

    What we have noticed is that people look at prices a lot and I like the look on there faces when we tell them that most of are prices including Hp's are near 50% off Walmart and Staples prices
    Plus we also like to educate them on how much ink is in there cartridges and how much they would have paid per gallon if they bought from Walmart or Staples

    Well have to run
    Dave

    In marketing you have to be careful about your field. First find that in which field you will go for marketing. In marketing if you have those buyers which are interested in your field then you will definitely get more benefits.

    Iíve worked with many small businesses, created many marketing plans, and I can tell you that a big part of the problem is the current plan mindset. Marketing plans are essential mind and stress freeing tools, and you can and should lean very heavily on yours, if you can avoid marketing planning pitfalls.
