    If you guys havnt started yet and you have the time I'd suggest to save a little dough and go hand them out yourself. If your a brand new business(I dont know if you are or not, but if you are) this is also a great time to talk to potential clients and get them comfortable with you and your work ethic because after all people buy services and products from people that they like.

    How would you know that your flyers or door hangers are really being placed if you are not doing it yourself.

    Around here it is common to pay $8 an hour. However, you have to take the people where you want them dropped, drive the streets to ensure you see the ads, manage the people and how many flyers you give them.......all for roughly $1,400 (10,000 flyers with 3 people for 5 days 8 hours a day).

    Or I can get a service here to do 30,000 flyers for 2k and they manage the whole process.

    Easy choice for me.
