    Wow...thats alot of door hangers. Where are you getting them and how much??

    It really depends on how close the houses are to each other. In my area the houses are right on top of each other so we could put out about 450-500 per hour per man.

    You could get them all out in 2 days with 5 guys but you said you want to double up on each house. So I would suggest sending 4 guys out for like 5 hours twice a week. Thats still only 20,000 per week. It would take 13 weeks to send them all out.

    That is a rediculous amount of dour hangers. That is one costly investment. Which IMO could be spent elsewhere. Also, i wouldn't recommend hitting the same house 5 times, probably like twice max. If someone kept on giving me flyers and i wasn't interested i would start to get Pissed off. Just my two cents, i am going to do door flyers too, but only in certain neighborhoods, and they're going to have a price on them per cut.

    I agree with the repetition. Maybe not 5 times but 3 or 4 is a great idea.

    that is a huge expense though. the cheapest I have found them is for $300 for 10,000. That would be $7,500 for 250,000. If I where you I'd do about half that (which is still alot).

    Think about getting just 1% of them to accept. Thats 2500 customers. Good luck with that kind of increase.

    Normal yards (distance) and cutting across properties (a necessity) One guy can do about a hundred an hour but they play out after 6 hours. I hire guys all the time to deliver flyers (day labour). I'm talking flyers to, Door hangers take longer because You have to stand there and fiddle.
