    When you are handing out door hangers do you pick and choose who you would want to have as customers, or do you blanket the entire area? Just wondering because i am sure that there are some places that you might go to that you would not want to do for a variety of reasons. Maybe no parking, or the parking is on the main road, or house is a dump, or too many dogs on property, or your afraid you might ruin you equipment Etc. :waving:

    We blanket entire neighborhoods in the areas that we are aready working. You will only get a couple of hits from the doorhangers so if you pick and choose you are going to have a hard time getting customers.

    We blanket, writ edown an average price for the entire subdivision, and note exceptions... for instance park ave. $35 except for 401 because it has a cul-de-sac, fence, a big dog and a cliff. that one is $40. :) works great for us. you should expect about a 1% return.

    I've only used door hangers once, but when i did I would pick and choose. I plan on putting out about 500 door hangers in a couple weeks, and plan on using the same technique. A lot of times I see properties that I would not touch with a 10 foot pole, no sence in wasting a hanger and time on them.

    right... if you see a lawn that would just be unbearable for you to mow skip it. I definitely agree... We're putting out 2500 door hangers in 2 weeks (on foot) and don't necessarily want to waste the time picking out the customers we don't want to mow.
