    Just had a thought. Make out I'm hiring flyers for door hanger distribution [no sales, solicitation or door knocking required].

    Starting pay $10 an hour. Commission bonus on accounts attainted.
    Job requires lots of walking and you must be physically able to stoop down and put some material under door mats
    Some other bullet points.
    Ridiculously flexible working hours.
    Job does require updates via email or text for each run started and approximate areas covered.
    Require job experince in customer service, retail or food service.

    Drive up to latte' stands in town and hand over a few flyers. The operators tend to be easy on eye's young ladies usually....am I not correct...? Birds of a feather stick together ....right...?

    By having flyers makes it look professional and you're not trying to hit on them...

    What do you think...?

    We get females from the local colleges around here to go and hang on door, works well. People will answer with female over male,,especially if she is eye catcher

    Yup.... total no brainer.

    Do you post a flyer on a bulletin board. Stand out there with a stack of flyers and hand them out?

    Took my son and dad to Carl’s Jr and I was a bit surprised to see this in the establishment.


    So I asked if they had any spares of this display and sure enough the Tire Shop next door bought both of them.

    Funny ....one of the staffers there said the card board super model has miraculously survived several incidents in the past few days.

    Sorry pics is a bit blurry :laugh:

    Looks are one thing. The person that represents my company has to have knowledge of the industry and skill to sell my services. My wife does most all our customer relations, but she knows the business as well as I do. Most residential customers are women and do relate better to other women.

    Well...once a home owner whether younger easy on eyes lady or older retired lady sees that I'm not scary or ratty looking, not a creepy stalker type and present myself in a professional manner....it always flow well after that point.

    Nowadays a male showing up just to deliver a flyer or door hanger raises concerns.

    If I could afford to hire supermodels with excellent people skills on Saturday's when folks are home and out and about not even door knocking just hand out material with a hello and hi ....I would do it in a heart beat.

    Um...I made the mistake of showing that pic of the cardboard super model to my son's mom. She says he can never go back there... sheeze. How harsh. :rolleyes:

    They are peddlers, all they are trying to do is get names and phone numbers for anyone intrested, after that its up to your salesperson to close the deal..........They just trying to get leads..

    Okay Guys,

    I really need help on this. We had a death in the family and I’m a full week behind schedule. I’m thinking about laser printing up some of my professional looking cleanly designed post cards with a “WE’RE HIRING door hanger and flyer distribution people on the back. Hand them out at the college, gyms tanning salons, latte stands wherever. Make as little or as much as you want, ridiculously flexible working hours whatever.

    Hand them out to the ladies with good customer service skills maybe a few non threating males that resemble
    Justin Bieber or whatever. The males just can’t look like a threat. I can’t have people out there with bad knees or scary looking tats, borderline derelicts etc.

    I’d strongly prefer the folks to live pretty close to the area the material would be distributed.

    Time for a bump. A year later and much water under the bridge. Your success with this...?
