i have a meeting with an agent tomorrow about a full page in a brochure(sp?)
What i know so far:
its a 2 year contract
its going to cost me £300 a year
its for a registrar office (weddings and civil ceremonies etc)
there will only be an advert for 1 of each occupation (caker, balloons, catering etc)
every person that has an appointment at the office will be given a brochure regardless of the reason.

my question: £300 is a lot of money for me at the moment if it doesnt pay off but if i only get 1 wedding order for a cake each year the cost will be covered. would you go for it.
thanks

sounds like you should go for it to me! the more advertising you get - the more your name is out there - the more calls you will get. surely it will produce at least one order per year...

I agree- if one order will cover the cost, then you should assume you'll get at least that in one year's time.

Good luck!

thanks both i think my problem is that i think too much and when something seems too good to be true it usually is. lol. i think that if the meeting goes well tomorrow and there are no surprises i will go for it.

agroeve, look at the first part of your Signiture Line - icon_wink.gif
*life is what you make it* - i think thats your answer there. thumbs_up.gif

Agree 300 pounds is alot of money - but broken down over 12 months = 25 per Month
Doesn't sound so bad when you look at it that way. icon_wink.gif

Best of luck with your meeting - and whatever the future brings from that.

Some questions to ask:

How many are going to be printed?

How many do you project to give out each month?

Are they only going to be given to those who make appointments or will they also have them at show, booths, etc.?

It sounds like a great deal but knowing who they are going to and how many will actually be in production might ease you some.

Good Luck!

I would also ask for a copy of a current brochure to get an idea about the quality of the print.
