    Most appropriate,time, place to hand out business cards etc?

    This question is for everyone here, I got 100 business cards but I don’t want to just leave them anywhere. Where and when is the best time, place, place to actually go up to someone and hand out a business card? I’m talking where a customer won’t likely give you a piece of there mind?

    Also what conversation would be ok when handing them out to get business?

    I can tell you one thing that as a car guy (or someone who works on others cars to improve the condition) I wouldnt lean over someone elses car, grab their wiper blade and put your card under it. Nor would I shove my card into their window moulding. I would be pretty upset if you wouldnt respect me enough to touch my #### without permission. lol

    A friend of mine placed them in mailboxes attached to a flyer of his services. Not sure if he broke any laws there, but he started by putting out 25 of these....ended up with 5 customers from it. Sometimes, you have to wait for the subject to come up in conversation with a potential customer. There are tons of articles on the web with the answer to the exact question you're asking.

    I would try with you're friends/family businesses first obviously and then maybe napa auto parts stores or places that ur friends with
    goes a long way. Also I would give a couple to each costumer that you do a job for so they can give there friends them aswell.

    That's needle in a haystack stuff. Save your business cards for people that ask for them, you'll get poor enough return using that method forget just giving them out to random people. You can ask your local detail supply place if you can leave some with them, both of my local places do that for the local detailers.

    Almost every customer that I do a job for asks for multiple cards so that's a good ploy. I'm going through about 200 cards a week right now and I'm super stingy with them.

    To your friend, of course he is breaking a law. A federal law. A mailbox is intended for receipt of postage paid us mail only. That's a no brainer.
