Default getting jobs/orders

Okay have been at this for a couple of years. Starting to get discouraged. Orders trickle in and not big ones at that. I have advertised contacted schools and such. They all say are interested but never hear back. What do you all do to get the jobs and orders to come in. I don't want to quit this job as I do like it and it keeps me available to our kids. Anyone have any good brainstorms for me.

Best Thing to do is to hire a Sales person, even if it's a kid with ambition. You need presence

What services do you provide, what products do you sell? Are you home based, internet based or do you have a retail operation? I think with these questions answered you will get much more constructive feedback from the members here.

Question Re: getting jobs/orders

I agree with Mr. Young. Give us more information as to what it is that you are trying to move. What's the competition like? The quality of your product should sell itself (word of mouth).

Just before Spring is our slowest time as well. We print for lots of schools and businesses. Everyone is doing their taxes right now.

Are you able to print signs? Stickers? Decals? What kind of equipment do you have? What kind of advertising do you do?

You might want to try sponsering some event that you can make shirts for that has YOUR logo somewhere on the shirt.

Let us know more about what it is you do.
