    nevermind my first questions for you, all you need to know is don't waste your time on that many doorhangers and mailers my friend. The cost won't justify the jobs you get from it. You are better off targeting certain areas and talking with people with proposals and estimates on site. But if you have some money to burn, good luck with the mail idea

    Yes, I am here in the Albany area. I wish we could seperate ourselves all together from the greater NYC area and become 2 states were are all so different in 1000's of ways.

    Anyway, back to your post. Why on earth do you want to scatter that paper all over your area when you could do it in person, walking thru neighborhoods, on the phone and target your areas much more directly. Plus you can close business much faster and at a better % in person. The average flyer response it seems on this board is .5% -- 2% using those methods. When I go door to door or my partner or the other guys, we land 5-10% easily and WE pick them first

    so your saying instead of having them mailed i should just take them printed and pass out the postcards?

    Mike, how much are you spending to have 10k postcards made up and having them direct mailed? I'm just curious. :confused:
