    3500-4000 flyers might net you about 35 jobs. Put out 5000 to be sure.

    I would do around 5,000. I have put out about 1,000 and have gotten a fair amount of calls for lawncare.

    Even if you dont get calls the first week, you will find that people often times save your letter/doorhanger/flier until the weather really starts to warm up.
