    Hi,

    I've got some people ready to do some leafleting for us and I'm just stuck on how much to pay them. Do you pay for the number of leaflets dropped or the hours worked? I want to do what's fair to them but not make it so expensive that we can't afford to do it again.

    We're going to leaflet drop in some posh areas with big mansions spread out from each other and more average housing estates where the housing is more compact, so it's quite varied in terms of how many houses they'll manage in one hour.

    The people we have ready to work haven't done this before either so also don't know what the going rate is.

    Thanks a lot,

    Jo

    I dont have any personal experience of leaflets but came across this thread, a few years old but some useful information in there.
    Flyer drops- how much do you pay?

    dont ask for more than 5 hours or theyll cheat i guarantee you . i found four hours to be the max and to get any sort of loyalty pay has to be a tenner per hour in the hand i.e 40 notes each day

    Agree with boarcity, anything over 4 hours for leaflet dropping is a tough day.

    I'd do them yourself in an evening, that way you can tell if there not the type of customer you want, such as massively overgrown gardens or a mini landfill site out front. Also means if you get a walk up you can quote on the spot. Plus it'll save you a few quid on wages.

    Yep, find time to deliver them yourselves. I get quite a few jobs from chatting to potential customers when leafleting.

    I do them all myself you can avoid the **** houses and for the people that want a quote there and the you can do it. I also like the option that you see one with filthy Windows and someone's in just knock the door there and then even better. Also no wages to pay.

    Totally agree with Chris, why not send them out for 4 hours give them £40 then do 4 hours yourself see the difference for yourself.
    Slightly off thread but how much does it cost to have the post office deliver them.
