    Hello just wondering what the response rate for door hangers in a neighborhood might be. I put out 3,000 hangers and i am hoping for a response of 300 am i asking to much for a 1% call back?

    1% of 3000 is 30, and thats the average callback rate i belive, i really beat the odds with my last set of flyers but i think i just found a good spot and got a little lucky!

    I put out maybe 800 doorhangers so far (on Saturday) and have gotten 2 calls, and gave an estimate for aerating from talking to one guy as I walked up.

    1% is a good guess. I put out about 150-200 last year and only got 1 job. Of course you could get lucky and find a hot spot and get more.
