    I think you will be at it for more than a month mate, and maybe even more than 3 months, but it really doesn't matter how long it takes to get them out, just that your out getting your name out there, and you do well. I don't think you'll have to worry about running out any time soon! lol.

    best of luck mate.

    Depending on the houses you will be doing, if you go into a terrace street, you can do a few hundred in about 30 mins.. But if you go to detached houses with driveways and gates it takes ages!! I wish I'd the time to do flyers, Iv about 2000 sitting here Iv had for nearly a year!

    Hopefully your water is soft, but I lived in a hard water area and moved 4 miles away and nOw in very soft area.. [hr]
    You should also go around all the local shops and ask. An you put a wee pile of cards on the counter etc

    I paid for 3 day I wasn't waiting for a month, 15000 in a month ? Not a chance I get 200 per day and that's enough for me.
