    Hey guys we have never really advertised but planning out handing out flyers and putting out doorhangers over the next few weeks. Do you guys actually knock on the doors of just stick them somewhere and move on? Man 2500 flyers/doorhangers is a lot of knocking on doors and talking to people!! I guess when you have to make a living its what it takes.

    How many door hangers do you get out a day per person.

    we got out about 300 in 3 hours with two of us. Had to stop because it 1)was super windy and was hard getting the hangers to stay on the door. 2) my partners contacts started to dry out really bad because of the wind. We are going back out tomorow to finish up our first 500. Then we have 2500 more on order that should be coming in in a few days!! Can't wait. doorhangersetc.com is who we got them from.

    You might wanna look into door hanger bags. I thought about the wind and rain factor when passing out fliers so I decided for me, that using door hanger bags would be the best thing. They're also a little harder to get off the door nob than a traditional door hanger so people are more likely to have to look at your flier wether they like it or not. Check out ULINE.COM

    Do you think it would make them mad enough not to bother looking at it?

    Good Point. I hope not :-( Good point though. When I get mine I'll test 'em out first and see but I immagine and hope that the benefits will outweigh the costs (ticked off homeowner)
