They cost 4 times as much to print so are not cost effective, they may work better but when you do the figures for the price of putting out 5,000 you could put out 15,000 leaflets, which do you think would bring in more work? also it would be hard to find some one to put them out.

HI all, Grin

Ok door hangers are type of flayers, but you hang then on doors instead putting them thru letter box.

And Mike, about the costs 10.000 of them will cost 400$( with shipment from US) and 10.000 flayers cost 400£.
I will put them out my self ( i do this with my flayers as well 1500 in 4 hours Grin Grin)
Thanks for repllay

I'm trying to find ways to tell customers about the service and every one do flayers, postcards etc. so if you comeback home and find your flor cower with milions of papers how on earth they will see my flayerHuh?

Keep them coming Cheesy

Many thanks for that, Iím now better advised

So itís like a flyer that you donít stuff through letter boxes you hang on the door (hence the name, which was the bit I was guessing).

Is there any other benefit to these other then not getting mixed up with others on the door mat (which is an issue, I would agree)?

I also agree that benefit should exceed cost, so why are they that much more expensive then normal flyers, (although I understand Adam that you have located a cheaper source in the US). Is it because they are like card or glossy or something?

Not sure I would like them on my front door; I get irritated by the flyers left on my windscreen of the car.

As you are going international for your material, can I suggest India which is the cheapest place on the planet that I know of at the mo and a lot cheaper then the US on delivery.

e.g.: I made a number of enquiries regarding a full colour pouch type folder, 3 UK quotes came back all around the £6-7K . India came back with  £1,600 delivered.

All well and good buying from the US, but have they told u about delivery time (ok may not be relevant) but if your like me and like to get cracking on a good idea do you realy want to wait three yes three week for delivery...I know this only cause I bought my husband a fish finder (don't ask) payed for 2 day delivery and then once I'd paid and they shipped and no fish finder, and phone call to US to be told three weeks.
Yes bad day today monday blues and all that, but it will all come out in the wash...

The door hangers look nice( like on hotel doors) and they will be hang just before people going back home so it is very good chance to see them.

were your flyers successful.

ie how much business did you get.

one off on going lifetime value etc

In the USA it is illegal to put flyers in a letterbox, only US mail may do this, that is why doorhangers are used becuse apparently it is not illegal to hang them on a door handle. Use leaflets if you can.

What about Pens or my Husband pin's my bussiness card up when he visits places with notice boards, no he does not ask for permisson...I walk into a dentist surgery the other week to find my card on the wall.

Hi all Grin Grin

Hmmm.... Flayers success rate.....It is very difficult to say because customer respond can be very long or very short in time ( I have customers after 1 hour and after 3 month after putting flayers)

But normally I can say you will get 1-3 per cent response form flayers.
I have 2 sides, 1 is domestic, and second one is 1 off only.

Thank for info on US flayers. Grin Grin
