    Thought I'd ask the ones that have had fliers placed in their local newspapers what kind of response you have recieved. I got a pretty good price on my local paper. It would cost me $170.00 for my town or $280.00 for my town plus the neighboring town. Probably about 8000 - 9000 (small town) papers total. Anyway, what kind of response rate have you gotten? I have had poor success with door hangers. Another thing is, I have never seen any of the competition advertise this way. The comp always just puts an ad in classifieds, usually 15 - 20 ads at once. I figured this would be a good way to help get my name out there.
