    Just curious how long it takes your guys to hand out door hangers, think I may have some boys milking the clock! Don't tell me to search, I did. Thanks

    I just think there's a variable that makes it hard to answer. How far apart are the houses? Are we talking tight-knit neighborhoods, or are we talking large estates where each driveway is a quarter mile long?

    There was an thread on this just the other day. I think the average was somewhere around 100 an hour. I hired some hispanics a few years to help me with this. All of them worked with me at my full-time job. One guy acted like he was being paid by the peice. I saw him sprinting from yard to yard. It was pretty funny to watch him. It didn't last more than a few yards and he was then out of breath and to a normal pace.

    I found a high school kid who works for me passing out hangers after school. He really wants to work and can pass out anywhere from 75-100 an hour depending on the neighborhood and how far the houses are from the street.

    This kid is motivated and really moves, but a lot depends on your workers and how your "hoods" are set up.

    In my area where the sub divisons have lots that are 2-3 aceres with atleast a 100-150 ft drive way it almost seems like it would take too long to get any # of hangers out.

    What do you guys think?

    That's why in the next week or two I am going to get me one of those little gas powered scooter. That should speed things up for me and not get me so tired at the end of the day.
