    I plan on targeting areas with postcards (covering each 3 separate times) and I really dont want to mail, I know someone who will walk around and distribute them much cheaper. I would rather not have to pay postage but I was wondering where I should put them since I cannot put them in the mailbox. And yes, I know what doorhangers are but they seem much less profesional and I am targeting upscales customers. So, where do you guys think I should put them and does it look less professional than mailing?

    I tape mine to the front door. but another question arises, How many people actually use their front door? In upscale neighborhoods most have garages they drive into with access to the house from that way. I guess it's just a chance you take.

    the local pennysaver publications will insert your flyer/ad with the door to door delivery for much less then postage.

    90% of my customers couldnt even tell you what color their front door is. They havnt looked at it since they bought the house.
    Im guessing you work in an urban envirement.

    having worked for a police dept in a wealthy community, most people dont want some guy knocking on their door, and if you do, your soliciting and need a permit
