    Default part time painting business advice

    Hey fellas,

    Im starting my own residential painting business on my off days and wanted some opinions...

    I would like to mention in some advertising flyers that im going to pass out that the business is run by an "off duty career firefighter." I dont want to overly advertise this fact, but I believe it will set me apart from my competition.

    The name of the business doesnt have anything to do with the fire service, but I want to mention something in the description of the work that I do that I am a career fireman.

    I think most potential customers like to see this fact and know they can trust me more than the next guy.

    So my question is...

    What ways would you advertise that you are a trusted local career fireman without sounding desperate or tacky?

    Thanks!

    Thumbs up Well........

    Don, A friend and former co-worker went into the Lawn Care business. His Flyers had a very small red maltese cross with "Firefighter Owned" under it, down at the left bottom of the page....... He credited that with getting a lot of calls from active and retired firefighters in his area......
