    Two people, one driving and one putting them in newspaper boxes, 9000 sf lots.

    So for our 15,000 flyers, I'd be happy to finish in 60 hours or so

    I walk and go door to door by myself. I try and go up to the door and see if anyone is home so i can make an impression. I get out about 40 an Hr. if i am hustling.

    I put them in newspaper boxes last yer. It worked great for me until I put one in the editor's mailbox. I got a call from the paper explaining that they didn't like this. They also pointed out they had an insert rate. It is about $55.00 per 1000 and you can pick the routes you want. It's not as cheap as doing it yourself but it isn't bad.
