Plain Jane Flyers?

Is it worth the extra money to have door flyers printed with a nice photo of some green grass when you can get a heavy wait plain bright paper with some simple info about your company on it for a fraction of the cost. I have had pretty good response from the plain jane flyers before.

if you are promoting fertilizing the nice green grass would help. You don't need all the fancy photos but you do want it to be professional looking and not just thrown together like an art project.

I like fliers with color, but I really don't add pictures. I just put my logo and some information about my company. I just add the color to make it pop.

Some guy on here swears by black and white flyers, he claims that he ALWAYS gets better response vs color flyers? I always run very simple flyers and get good response...

I have done the math several times and Just can see where flyers are worth it....

this is a VERY expensive way to advertise, then if you add color it brings price wayy up
