Direct Mail Marketing For My Grandson's Car Detailing Business...

Services for Real Estate Pros with RE/MAX Executive Realty - Happily Retired 104763

My grandson, Ryan Tvelia, has started a summer car detailing business called "Clean As A Whistle."  He’s already started detailing cars for people in his neighborhood, and word of mouth has created many more detailing jobs for him.

Since I do marketing all day, I thought I'd create a postcard, and I’ll be mailing it to homes in Plainville MA.  Ryan has his appointment book ready to be filled with addresses and appointment dates and times.

Direct mail marketing works well for me, so I’m confident he’ll have a very busy summer with a few of these mailings.  Just another benefit of direct mail marketing beyond real estate!!!

What a great name for a company.  He is lucky to have such a smart and talented grandmother, too.  Maybe you can teach him how to blog.

Direct mailing certainly can't hurt your grandson and with a the Direct Mailing Marketing Queen named Barbara Todaro, he is sure to be busy all summer long :)!

Ryan may have to hire a few assistants to handle all of the work he is about to get!  Next time, maybe add that he goes to the clients' house or work-place - he just needs access to water.
