17.Approach merchants at local swap meets who are selling non-competing items. Ask if they would display your catalog and take orders, for a reasonable percentage
18.Do you have relatives living in different parts of country? See if they would be interested in distributing catalogs using any of these methods, for a percentage, of course.
19.Make a deal with local newspaper to insert your brochure.
20.Anytime you deliver an order, always stuff order with additional catalogs and/or brochures.
21.At Christmas time, make a deal with Christmas tree lots to let you distribute catalogs. Same with pumpkin patches at Halloween.
22.Senior citizen communities are a great place to hand out catalogs. Many of residents aren't able to get around as well as they used to, and appreciate opportunity to shop at home. Extend a healthy discount, too; many senior citizens are on fixed incomes.
23.Many communities have Welcome Wagon services. Contact those service providers and get your catalog included in Welcome Basket
Certainly you may come up with many more ways to successfully distribute your catalogs and brochures. Any way you come up with is fine, as long as you get your material into a prospect's hands.
