    i know im going to get a can of worms open by asking this but......... have any of you ever gone door to door on a saturday and passed out flyers? around here saturdays are like a regular work day but i know some people dont like to be bothered. but i was planning on trying to find some more work for fall clean up, possible overseeding, and some other work if possible,

    a fall clean-up flyer or a general flyer that says everything you do? If your just starting out you should flyer anywhere and everywhere you can on your spare time. It'll get your name out for people too see and start recognize and eventually feel comfortable with.

    I don't see a problem with Saturday at all, just don't show up at 7am.

    lol just remember to put your number on them..last fall i pasted out 1000 or so with no calls. i was bagging my next run when i looked at the flyer..no number..lol..i reprinted and hit the same areas. got a couple accounts. one guy when i met with him saw the first fly and told me . lol we just laughed.still a great account..
    on letter size paper.design and cut down to size that fits in a sandwish bag.me 6 per page.dollar store has bags 100 for $2. home depot has rocks in a bag. one bag lasts about 1000 flyers. put a flyer a rock in a bag with rock and seal,and put in a big box. i can past out 500 flyers an hr. just driving and tossing on the driveways. get about 1 account per 1000. then its word of mouth and keeping up the flyers.

    That may be some of the worst advise you may get from here.

    Yes I hate you guys. You need to walk to the door and put the flier on. :hammerhead: Your return rate is 1/10th of a percent wow that's stupid low. Door to door sales is stressful and you get yelled at etc. It does work and it works way better than anything else. I usually get upwards of 10-20% on door to door sales in the right areas. (the nicer the area isn't usually the best).
