    flyer houses? OR do you prefer just straight up advertising in the paper, phone book or elsewhere?

    i have someone drive and keep flyers in both pockets...
    case the neighborhood and figure out a route

    a handout in person and a sorry we missed you flyer

    I usually can handle 50-75 houses in a good afternoon

    every person you talk to works better then dropping of random flyers

    Good luck Nate

    Think I could write off one of those electric scooters as equipment if I used it to deliver flyers? Think I could look any sillier? Which actually doesn't bother me, can't be any worse than riding the 18-speed in bicycling shorts...
