Marketing Plan

  1. Flyers in all schools in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill Public school system. Must get a map and assign "helpers" to get to these schools.
  2. Lawn signs near busy intersections (54 and 40 in chapel hill for example)
  3. Small paper ads - I know there is a sports specific paper in Chapel Hill. Need ideas for Durham and Raleigh.
  4. Flyers up at rec centers, gyms and YMCAs

Any other ideas?

Any feedback at any time would be greatly appreciated!
