Does having your flyers out first promote a better response?

  1. Yes

  2. No

    Do you guys believe that being the first, or one of the first people to deliver flyer's in a specific area is more likely to boost calls/jobs? I'm talking a reasonable time (like now or soon for the north east) not January 1st or anything.

    I know I've been attending quite a few garden shows and seminars lately, and I'm PUMPED about this year!
    I think if a homeowner is getting excited about the spring, and they find your doorhanger first, they are more likely to at least keep your name in mind. I have actually picked up two accounts recently from 'hangers I hung out last May!

    Ya ive gotten a few stragler replies. I think im going to hit up the places I really want to get in to with 5-10K flyers and then dump the majority in another 3 weeks or so.
