I'm curious about where and how you are distributing flyers. I just moved to a new state and I'm starting all over looking for students. I tried flyers when I first started out in my last location but it didn't seem to work too well. I just walked through nearby neighborhoods and left flyers on front doors, since it's illegal to put them on mailboxes. Out of 500 flyers I got 2 calls
. Those students did stay with me for over 3 years and referred a couple others so I guess it was worth it, but it took several days to run all the flyers and I can't imagine trying to do more than that by myself. Also, I'm pretty sure that alot of the flyers just blew away or stayed on the door for weeks.
Now that I'm starting over again, I've considered trying this again, but honestly I don't really feel comfortable with it. I think alot of people are turned off by "trash" on their doors, not to mention the issue of trespassing. Now I'm considering just doing a legitimate bulk mailing, but that's a bit pricey. What are your thoughts?
