    Well they say that 1% is average.I think it all depends on the material your passing out 500 well made flyers will get you more business than 1,500 scrub looking flyers.The time of year also means alot.Do a search and you can read about flyers for 2 days.

    Alex, i would do both. a quality flyer followed, maybe 10 days later?, with door hanger.

    then get yourself a reverse phone directory and follow up with a call, again 10 days following door hanger.

    the key to advertising is repeat, repeat, repeat......

    good luck

    I would say send out about 2-3,000 fliers and make them look good quality. So the coustumers see your good quality advertising they will be assured that you so good quality work! - I passed out 110 fliers berfore I got 2 calls good luck.

    This is exactly true, and what Jacob said holds true also. Quality flyers in a defined area in a persistent manner will pay off...takes time, but works...
