Default First Marketing Move

As some of you may or may not know i've been working on starting my own business mainly in the area of building, repairing computers etc. Well I have been mainly marketing by word of mouth with little success. I finally took my last savings out of my account and bought business cards to today. Can't wait for them to arrive so I can start handing them out.

Yea thats true and thanks for the good view. I expect good things mainly cash. Figure at a 5% success rate at each build being 100 bucks in profit, 10 builds=1000 bucks which equals a healthy 73 buck investmetn.

Heres the card...

Nik...you will need a website? You can ask me if you need help developing one or something...

Did you already order the business cards? Because I would say get your eMail@yourwebsite.com on the business card but either or. Remember, PM me or ask if you want help with a site .
