If you run a business out of your home…
I understand the inclination to put a sign in your yard, it’s free advertising. I get that. But I need more information in order to do business with you.
In the last week I’ve seen the following signs in yards:
The above and most popular “eggs for sale”
“Chainsaw Sharpening Here”
“Burn Barrels – $5″
Am I supposed to just park in your driveway and walk up to your door and ask to buy a burn barrel? Is that really the plan?
At the very least, add your hours of operation. I think I’m pretty average in terms of my comfort level with strangers and I promise you that I am not bringing my chainsaw to your house for sharpening unless I know for sure that you’re into it.
