Are you asking how to measure the effectivness of your door hangers?

try asking callers where they heard about you.

or putting a different promo on the hangers

It is unfortunately a time consuming process, even to get even a general idea of how good the distribution was. Hell, I can walk & hit several streets then drive by within an hour & half the hangers are already off the doors.

The method that works for us is three fold:
1. Set traps where you have friends, family, employees, & customers that live in the drop zone, ask them to confirm if they got the door hanger.
2. Schedule your work route for each day to coincide with same area & give your drivers maps of the areas scheduled to drop that day.
3. Monitor & track sources of every lead that you get. We enter every lead into our system & export lead reports (by source=Door Hanger) to mapping. This gives an overview map of leads generated by the walkers.

I think this is a great idea!

I think it is also important to hire kids that you can trust (ex, family, friends of family etc).
