I dont, but was wondering if anyone does? One customer of mine flagged me down to clean her sidewalks while she is on vacation and I noticed the sign on her door. It just made me wonder would I get more business if I left flyers at those properties or just respectfully skip them?

I'm not really looking to flyer this year, I'm more looking for a ft job. Just thought of this as food for thought for the board.

There is no form of advertising that does not upset some people. Many cities consider door selling and leaving fliers as separate forms of advertising. Some cities require separate lisc. for each.

I have caught people in there yard (NO SOLICIT sign clearly visible) as I was taking a flier to door. Said "just delivering this flier for our Lawn Care company". They asked for details, sold them our services. I have been called back by many people that have sign, but I left flier anyway. Sold services to a number of people with sign.

I do not like having to answer door and speak with a solicitor, I have a sign on my home.

I have a sign on my home as I just said and I do not mind it if someone leaves a flier I can respond to if I am interested in service.

I always knock one no soliciting sign. When you become a great salesman you will see.. I once sold a service after 10 min of talking, the guy was yelling at me to go away in the first 10 sec.

I also once sold a lawn care program to a guy inside his home, I was speaking thru the window.

Leaving a door hanger is not soliciting. It is considered distributing handbills. We leave door hangers on all houses we pass except for ones where the homeowner is out front as that is soliciting and requires a permit. We also skip homes were a dog or child is out front or if the front door is open.
