1 method I sometimes use when I'm hurting for cash is to hand out flyers. Approach business professionals, like insurance agents, realtors, and any one who works in the labor trades ( carpentry, landscape, roofing, tileing, plumbing,so on ) Let them know you will be handing out flyers to residential houses in your area. And that you can give them cheap advertising for a small fee+commission.
Since I have the networks with the businesses. I Sometimes post ads on craigslist for people to hand out my flyers for me. Leverage my efforts. I pay people $8 per 100 flyers handed out
How do I make money? These businesses print out the flyers and pay me $10-$12 per 100 flyers, with great commissions like $5 per phone call, $10 for a appointment, $50 for a sale. Quick easy money.
