When I was a lad there was no choice… no internet to give you the inside leg measurements of local businesses… you had to get out and knock a few doors.

Moving to Sidmouth in June I was busy with a big project but that finished in October… a few bits and bobs in between but I felt the need to get out and see what results door knocking would produce.
My new Rotary Club has a big event at the end of February at Sandy Park, Rob Baxter is hosting a charity dinner dance, so I led with that, giving out flyers and the response was very positive.
I also handed over my business card explaining that I can help with sales & marketing, rattling a few doors or creating a website / blog… a few showed real interest so we’ll see what results.
In business you need to try every route to market, it’s the only way to determine what works best for you and this is going to change from product to product and also on the geography… folks up in London need most things yesterday… most folk I bump into these days are happy with tomorrow 😉
Loved this sign…
See you at the Rob Baxter dinner…
