    I just got my flyers last Thursday 10,000 strong. Just wanted to know how many flyers per day have you guys passed out. What is the average for one person passing them out. BTW , they are door hangers.

    You're gonna be real tired..even if the homes your targeting are real close together... I imagine at least 3-4 eight hr. days..

    WoW... Only 3 to 400 in an 8 hour period. I thought it would be more than that. Oh well. I can use the exercise this summer.

    I passed out 250 in 3.5 hrs. last week, and myself and a helper passed out 385 in 2 hrs. in a similar neighborhood on Friday, and the calls are pouring in.
    6500 more AT LEAST to go, getting skinny from all the cardio. :cool2:

    I pay a company to pass my flyers out. $25 per 1,000. Tried doing it myself, too time-consuming. It's alright when you're starting out, but once you've got business, you really don't have the time except to hit a few streets here and there.

    I have worked some political campaigns in the past few years and we could do 1100 - 1300 or so homes in about 5 hours. Thats with a 2 person team.

    That seems just about like it --- and we don't have " tight " neighborhoods around here.
