I paint wall murals-NW Louisiana area. How do I get the word out to new communities in Shreveport Bossier?

I paint kids room murals and hand painted bulletin boards. I would love to get the word out about my work to some of the newer communities that are popping up around the Shreveport Bossier area. (like The Colony...etc) I have 3 young kids at home so I don't have a lot of money to advertise. I've painted in similar communities as far away as McKinney, Texas. Word of mouth is usually the best advertisement for me. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. Check out my photo gallery at http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/kristy_art/my_photos

Details:

  1. Advertise in their local newspapers, or the towns web site. heck if your really ambitious make many flyers with your business card or web site info and put them up in grocery stores and other hi volume stores, even the lil mom n pop stores, theres many ways to advertise.
  2. Another place you might look into seeing if you can post fliers is in stores that cater to new parents like baby stores. Also see if you can put up a flier at home improvement stores. I don't know if there's many communities that still do it but you may have a welcome wagon service in the area that you can see if they will throw in a buisness card or something. You may also see about making up fliers that you can put in mail boxes or slip on door knobs throughout the neighborhoods. You're absolutly right about word of mouth being the best form of advertising. Just need the mouths to put out the word. Best of luck.
  3. Kristy, Thank you immensely for your answer to my question titled: "I got a girl pregnant, she's 20, I'm 49." Everyone agrees there are several people's future which all now pivots on my action or inaction, and so very important is what is best for the child, although as an older man with no kids, never married, I would suffer terribly if never having this child in my life and I want so very much to be so very good to him. The mother is a warm and sweet person, but a really big liar whenever convienient, and definitely doesn't want me to bother her or her husband or child now(she says I should just be glad she bore the child and respect all of them by letting it be and not interfering). The chance to become a real father seems distant even if I push this, plus it will ruin their marriage, thereby my son's family, although I have doubts about their marriage since she cheated and he knows it but accepts it, at least for now. My address is czesc2u@yahoo.com Would you please consider mailing me so I could keep in touch with you, your'e the only person I know of who has been through this from the child's perspective. Again thanks so very very much. Nicholas Naccari czesc2u@yahoo.com
