    Thinking about going door-to-door this weekend and handing out flyers/biz cards. Wondering if this is a good idea? Do people tend to get more pissed off because your bothering them on a weekend? Or is it better to hit them when they are more likely to be home?

    What are the opinions as far as best time, day, etc. to pass out info?

    Thanks

    you could go house to house on weekdays around 6-8pm. there usually home. or what i do is i knock on doors that the yard needs to be mowed on a friday and ask them. and they usuall say yes cause there exhausted from work and all they wanna do that weekend is sit on the couch with a beer and the tv remote. !!! hope i could help

    Year round in my area the lawn never stops growing, however your close ration may be a little higher in the warmer months. It really depnds on what type of service you provide.
