    i do flyers in mail tribune boxes in upper class neighborhoods, it has kept me pretty busy, what about punching a whole through a flyer then using a rubber band to hang it from the door, cheap door hanger = D

    I actually do this it works pretty well however the rubber bands come untied from the flyer sometimes. I also print my own flyers that I designed myself.
    I get two flyers per page distributing them is the most time consuming part of the operation.

    Think I could write off one of those electric scooters as equipment if I used it to distribute door hangers? Faster than walking and easier to get on and off than my bike. I have 4500 ready to go and I'm not looking forward to the delivery process...

    I print my own flyers and then go door to door , if they are home i try and talk to them and give them a flyer if they are not home i tape it to the door, has worked pretty good for me

    What is the end result for you guys that advertise with flyers or door knockers, 1 contract with every 50 flyers or? I am not trying to be negative but I always read "getting really good results with this" so that is why I ask what are the results. Finally has any one ever tried the road side "letters on black sign" type of advertising?
