    What you think about this I go up two a house to put out a door hangar and there's one already there I thought I would throw mine on the ground in front of the door and make it look like the other guy took mine down to put his up does that sound like a dumb idea

    I had 4,000 deluxe business cards printed out this year. I covered the entire lake surroundings in two days with a mail jeep. I am still receiving calls for work a month later. Maybe I am wrong, but it seems door hangers would take way too much time to pass out. Do they get good responses?

    you put them in the paperboxes or on the outside of the mail box, the mail jaeeps can be bought for $300-$1000, luckily I have a friend with 3. Since they are right hand drive, you can do it by yourself on off days. I have found out that the cards are more efficient than flyers. They are much easier to pass out, plus the homeowners are morre likely to hold on to them. It works for me

    Be real careful with mailboxes! It's a federal offense (LITERALLY) if you're ever caught or turned in. Mailboxes are considered property of the US Postal Service and the postmaster can come after you with bigtime fines. I used to work for political campaigns, believe me, you'll get into "heap big trouble" messing with mailboxes.

    As far as the door hanger situation, just leave your door hanger with the other one. Hopefully yours looks better and will make the sale.

    I have thought about using magnetic business cards and placing them on house doors. Do any of you find this offensive or could this be considered damaging or graffiti. I know this probably sounds extreme, but say it were a car door. I would think people would find a magnet on their car door offensive, at least i would. What about house doors? I have thought about putting post it note style business cards on house doors, but they may leave a sticky residue. Some people are anal about things. Do any of you use magnetic business cards?
