    it sounds good but the success rate of flyers seems to be low according to this forum

    i would think it would be a lot of wasted time for little gain. if people would want one they would phone you, even if you didnt put the price on them.

    also they could have a conservetory and you wouldnt know since your at the front.

    has anyone else tried this?

    That's the prob you never know what's round the back. You put an estimate I Spose and says connies etc may put the price up but as said if they want 1 they will ring whatever you put on. Mine are the most basic one going but by seeing what percentage people get on here mine are just as good. I personally don't spend much on flyers as to me 95./' of them go in bin. I believe whatever they look like if people want you they will ring.

    lol,i wouldnt walk round,i know its a risk about conservatories etc maybe i could write conservatories not included or something,i think i will print afew different styles and wording and see which one has best response rate,i do prefer knocking anyway but i always leave a flyer if not in as i took the time to walk down there drive so at least i have reached them in some way

    it is a big risk! the place my parents used to live was only a bunglow and you could only see 3 windows from the front, and only looked a small place. but it went back along way and had about 15 windows in it plus 3 sets of double patio doors.

    this is another house that i do.
    dont look much from the front, but when i went round the back the whole length of the house at low level was a glass wall, from one end of the house to the other!!!

    so not even worth putting a price on it, just in case. if you guess at £10, then they phone you up and then you have to tell them no its going to be £30, it dont look good on the company
