    Whoops. Sorry about the duplicate post.

    Anyways. How do you pass these ads out? Yourself? Do you hire a few kids? Temp labor work? etc.

    Any input here would be helpful as this is my first year passing out door hangers.

    Thank you. :)

    I did the printed door hangers, and walked to each house myself. Cheapest way, if you have nothing better to do of course! GOOD LUCK!

    Other: I got 4000 4"x6" post cards from overnightprints.com one side fill color for $130.00 they don't say much, but it is quick and to the point. So far ....750 cards out 4 calls 3 sales.... over $6,000.00 in gross revenue for the year. I put my specialties only on the cards, mowing, weed control and fertilizer, lawn and landscape renovation. I have $650.00 in tree trimming for monday then the landscape renovation, $1,300.00. Wish me luck... first year on my own.

    Just put some out last week. I like to focus on neighborhoods where I already have accounts. Then I focus on neighborhoods where I want to be (the nicer places). My crew and I walk them out. We can hang quite a few in an hours time. We hung 250ish last week. 4 calls (3 general cleanups/mulch beds/prune/etc), 2 of those will also have us provide weekly maintenance services. The nicer you make them, the better. I ordered 2000 full color front/back for 450ish. Already have that covered plus time to hang with the first 250.

    I just received my door hangers yesterday from Uprinting.com. I got 3000 full color front for $230. They look great! I cant wait to pass them out. It is rainy and in the 40's here and is supposed to be that way all next week. I am not sure when I will get to pass them out.
