I am a 17 year old who's read Unscripted 2 years and since then it's changed my perspective on how i viewed life. since those two years i've been doing small side hustles like dropshipping (ew, i know) and instagram page management for a few bones, but i never really created anything big. i've written tons of notes but never took action, wasting a majority of my time mentally masturbating watching day in the life videos or entrepreneurship videos on youtube faking productivity. So far I have finally taken the first step and created a detailing business. i picked up a job and work 20 hours a week + being a junior in HS, and all that salary goes directly into my business. I'm in a lucky position because none of that money goes to anything else as i'm still under my parents wings. before making my own business, i've been doing it with some kid a few towns over and he'd give me 10% each time, so i decided to start a new one with a close friend of mine where i take 1/3rd of all profits, he takes 1/3rd of all profits, and the company takes 1/3rd (for advertising, equipment, signage, etc.) so that we don't argue about taking out of pocket money for the business. eventually me and him are gonna split and stay under the same company which brings our total earnings (alone) to 2/3rds each while the company retains 1/3rd. I created a website, linktree, instagram account, logo, ordered business cards, i'm on the right track. I finally did my first job , took 8 hours, charged 100 for it so that i could turn it into content on instagram (i know that's practically slave labor) but i'm pretty good and now all I have to do is find clients. I'm gonna print my business cards on papers to give people that i cold approach (houses, walking, etc.) for now while i wait for the order to come in, and was wondering if my strategy for marketing sounds good. (screenshot from texts between me and my business buddy)

i just need a second opinion from someone doing something similar on how good my roadmap would seem to hold up in the future. (check screenshot)
currently: business cards, facebook groups, social media posts, instagram ads, facebook ads, loyalty program, affiliate program, before and after pictures
havent done cold approaching yet

Well done, congratulations! I hope all your efforts will give results. Here's a thought - how about putting QR codes on your vehicles? (I read about this recently, here is the article.) When people see your car around town, they can scan the code and instantly learn more about your services or get a discount, why not. I think it's a great way to attract new clients and make your marketing materials more interactive and engaging. Plus, it saves people the hassle of typing in a URL, making it more likely they'll check out what you offer. (You can also build a loyalty program with QR codes or ask for feedback.)
