    In February I'm going to put out flyers. I am going to have a couple kids from church do it but I wasn't sure on a reasonable amount. I think I got paid like
    .05 a flyer when I was a kid but that was when I young & dumb so I dunno if that was a good deal at the time or not.

    10 cents per flyer and send an hourly supervisor you can trust to watch your flyers or they'll end up in the trash. Hourly guys walk slow!!!!

    I figured I would follow them in the truck so I could give them more flyers when they are running low. Plus I would be able to make sure they are actually handing them out.

    I give my guy a map of an area and drop him off. He follows my map and where I tell him to go, I drive around the area to make sure all the doors have door hangers on them. I know about how long it should take him so he can't be milking the clock too much and he gives me a call when he is finished so I pick him up and off to the next neighborhood.

    i don't mean to be a smart a$$ but if you have to follow someone around couldn't you just do it yourself?

    Thats what I was thinking. At least go on the other side of the street and do some houses.

    I like to go out on Sundays and walk neighborhoods. This gives me a good chance to catch people at home.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. Most of the areas that I am working in have 10 houses grouped & on both sides & then a very large length until the next set. I was thinking I could drive & they could hop on the tailgate to the next group. Most of my areas are lake communities so you kinda get the picture. Plus, I would rather pay someone a little to do the hard stuff if I can. Work smarter, not harder.
