    Is 50k flyers too much for one salesman to handle the calls? The flyers are being inserted in local paper.

    I cant decide between 25K or 50K ? I want both areas but i dont want more calls than I can handle.

    That,s hard to say without knowing anythig about your bus.

    We put ordered 2k last year, and put most of them out, it got a bit hairy at times with all the calls.

    We ordered another 2k this year, and have only had time to put out a few, so far.

    I can't imagine, 25k or 50k, but that's just me.

    What is it costing you to have them inserted in the local paper? We may need to look into this, it's hard to find time for our guys to go door to door.

    25k = $2000
    50k = $3500

    Every year I do around 20k, and it is busy as hell, but theres always room for more if your hungry.
