Some people feel that the printing advertisement ways are starting to become less important. (Printing - flyers, brochures, business cards and etc)
I personally still think it's a great way to go about growing your business. It might be slow, but it's better than having none and wondering what you could do to bring more customers. Everyone goes out to a social meeting at some point, why not have an easy business card to hand out to a couple people, maybe they know some other people who are looking for your type of product!
Anyways, I'd love to hear about your thoughts on printing advertisement, and if it works for you!
