    Hey guys,

    Wondering where you put your flyers. I started a couple weeks ago and just put them on front doors... that just took FOREVER. Then I decided (even if its illegal) to put them in mailboxes. MUCH faster. Please let me know what you guys suggest... whats the best way to advertise you your opinion?

    Thanks!

    If I were you, I'd stick to "legal" places to put your flyer.

    I Just went full time this year so today was my first time to do flyers.
    I rolled and wraped them in rubber bands as i walked from house to
    house.It was hard to roll them up because the wind was blowing
    about 30 mph. so it was very slow. did 100, then went home, rolled
    and wraped w/rubber bands and stuck them in a large shopping bag.
    It went a lot faster this way!!! With the rubber bands, you can hang
    them just about anywhere, door,shrub next to front door, paper box,
    I even hung some on chairs by the front door, just use your imagination!!
    Just stay away from mailboxes.

    make em stick out!!!!! remember to keep em out of the mailbox use the iron railings to place them use a colorful paper or very unique layout on the flyer but most of the time the flyer goes into the garbage

    Put them on the cars windsheilds at a shopping center or a mall. I carry cards on me all the time and put them everywhere! That besides word of mouth is how i get most mt customers.i also give $50.00 for a refferal, if the person signs up with me the person who gave out my name made 50. I put out alot of flyers and haven't had any luck at all, not counting the gas and time doing it.

    going to a mall, parking, and putting them on windshields will save a lot of gas money!
