in the off season you deliver phonebooks and put your flier in each one.
so now they are paying you to deliver your own flier..

plus you are making money in the off season


just talked to a guy that did this in jan/feb.. he said last month he grossed $16,000 ...

Did they ALLOW him to insert his flyer or did he just do it on his own?

seems kind of sketchy, but if he didn't get caught, hes:laugh: . It def is illegal, just like putting mail in federal mail boxes

Why would it be illegal? The phone company is a private company not part of the government. I would think you could get fired for it, but not in any real trouble.

Ours come in a plastic wrapper. How would you get around that?

You could just put the flyer in the door while delivering the phone books. Don't know how much business would come out of putting flyers in Jan/Feb though. I put some out in mid-march and didn't have much response.

I looked into the phonebook delivery thing once a few years back...I couldn't see how the pay would barely pay for your gas, much less gross $16,000...you sure he didn't mean $160?? :laugh:

I remember the delivery guy is an independent contractor, you got paid per delivery, they had some rules and regulations so perhaps you could insert your own flyer.

Are you saying he grossed $16,000 in work from the flier?
