    Typically with any direct mailing, you should expect the majority of calls within the first two weeks, three at the most. You might have a few that hang on to them for longer periods of time.

    With any luck you'll get a few calls tomorrow. 1-3% seems to be the normal response rate for flyers, although that varies depending on time of year. I had 2000 out last week, only got 1 call thus far. But in the last few days its gotten a lot warmer, grass is greening up (won't be long now...). Hoping for a better response this week.

    I usually get calls from the same day up until almost a week after distribution. If the person keeps your flyer, it may spend some time sitting on the dining room table until they get around to calling you.

    Don't feel bad, I put out 8,000 at the beginning of last March and only got a few calls. This weekend I have 15,000 going out. It's suppose to be sunny and in the low 70's Sat, Sun & Mon, so that will help. Hang in there, they will call......I hope!

    How are you getting so many fliers out. Paying someone to go door to door, if so how do you pay them?

    well over 5000 flyers put out, so far i have recieved over 35 calls for services, all signing up for weekly lawn cutting, along with a side services dethach or aeration, and still counting, people are holding on to them and calling i recieve at least 5-10calls a day with estimate request, and i have been keeping in touch with those price shopper turns out my prices are the lowest but ppl just wanna wait an extra week or two before they do anything with their yards.
