Flyer To Ph Call Time?
#1

Two weeks ago I had a call from a lady that had held on to my flyer. I havent dropped any flyers for 2 years and if memory serves where she lives i dropped when i started mowing which i think was approx 4 years ago.

Quoted and got her as a reg.

 

What's the longest drop to call you have had?

I’ll add to this mate, I had listing in Yellow Pages about the size of a pack of fags in 1998. 2001 I had an old girl call me after cutting the paper advertisement out of the book. Old letterbox drops, probably 6 months tops.

i had a call from the local paper about 4 or 5 months after my last ad, you get saved into the someones phone and then they get around to calling or sending a message some time later, probably at 10.30 on saturday night, but thats another topic

When I started a new business up about 8 years ago, I put out about 30,000 or 40,000 flyers over a couple of years. I had a couple of older ladies call me 3-4 years after I had stopped and quite a few after a year or 2.  I was surprised, but they said that just kept them until they needed them. I suppose I do the same with a few things.

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone has any facts or figures on flyers, specifically how many leads could you expect 5000 flyers to generate? I know there will be lots of defining factors but any rough information would be great.

Sorry if I've posted this question in the wrong place.

In my experience 5,000 flyers would generate about 10 jobs initially (not all regular work). 

 

Maybe another 5-10 over the next few weeks.

 

The response rate is very low, so you need to keep putting them out in the same areas to build up a business.
