    Im trying to think of some good places to leave flyers. Door to door is painfull cause its so hit and miss and miss and miss and miss... you get the idea. Plus, around here people just dont want you there. I left some on the book racks in a real estate lobby. Also some with people around town that I know but that was a waste of paper, those people are just taking them to promote there own business and get the credit. I love to hear, "I can get you more business than you know what to do with". I was actually stupid enough to get my hopes up on that once. :hammerhead: Now I have trouble trying not to laugh when I hear it. Okay, Im done bich'n, just had to throw a rant in there.

    i shop at sams club alot and they have like a cork board by the exit doors and i always pin up 4 or 5 business cards on that, and when i get gas there, i leave a business card above the slot where the gas handle is..couple ideas, i pretty much leave business cards around and not fliers.

    we put them in the customers paper box last year,problem was sometimes there would be 1 house with and 12 without. next year we will be using door hangers and flyer's. sometimes you have to go get your customers.

    Put them in the newspaper part of the mail box. Not the part where mail is delivered because you can be arrested for that.
