Door Hangers

I just wanted to see what everybody thaught about door hangers. I personally have mixed opinions about them. They are not all that productive. In my experience they have about a 1% call return and about 1/2% job return. Let me know your opinion!

IMO door hangers are a waste of time and money. they cost alot more than flyers and remember with door hangers your gonna have to walk to every door to put them out and with flyers you can simply ride from house to house with out getting out (much faster method).

Where are you leaving your flyers in the mailbox? The Post Office frowns on that sort of thing.

i don't put in mailbox thats illegal. i tape to outside of mailbox out of the mailmans way, they usually don't say anything then, but i put on paper box if/when available thats the best place.

I never even considered paying for door hangers

since I'm a cheap bastard with little money for advertising, I decided to make mine myself. They are 4 1/4 by 11 so you can fit two per page. I'm gonna have 1000 printed at Staples for like 30 bucks and then stuff them in door hanger bags (1000 for 19 bucks) and hang 'em on people's door knobs. I'll let you know how that turns out. Since they're not that effective supposedly, but I've heard some people say they get a 3% call back and 1.5% jobs booked, why spend a bunch of money on them

door hangers?

I am also looking into doing this. Just in some small sub divisions, about 300 houses. (mostly old retired people, perfect!) I found some cheap places to look for hangers, but the sites can be confusing. Here's two sites:

http://www.door-hangers-direct.com/drprint.htm
http://www.door-knob-hangers.com/spe...ns-prices.html

I simply typed "door hangers" into google. If any one orders from here post back your experience.
Thanks

I'm probably just gonna go with "postcard" flyers and tape them to the mailboxes or perhaps but them near the front door, haven't figured it out yet but they're much cheaper.
