    I will probably do some canvassing in the following days but just wondered if anyone drops leaflets in the evenings?

    Now I am busy I leaflet whenever i get a spare half hour..it is quicker than canvassing but if you need the work badly you need to knock doors

    I have done in the past, but I don't recommend dropping when its dark as you get looked at with suspicion from the outset, which is not a good first impression.

    go for it . he who dares wins, never is a truer word said than when it comes to leafletting . and "keep em comin" - you must cos only dole out 100 you get a sh/tty result -but dole out millions and you will rule the world its guaranteed [of windows at least]

    thats reminded me, how many times on the forums iv seen images of boxes of really nice leaflets sittin at their masters home UNDELIVERED . they delivered 2 or 3 thou but then got jaded and six months later the biz is stagnant or worse still up for sale [ including those leaflets ] . im a proponent of leafletting and altho iv never delivered any in the evenings iv always delivered every one i had - and then hurried home printed more got obsessed

    "OCD leaflets" now you wont ever find that in a medical journal- cos its a Very healthy condition to have ;)

    Yeah, I should change that to "try and drop as many as you can while its still light in the evenings".

    i dont often leaflet now as my diary is near chock full- but part of me wishes i had the guts to carry on leafletting weekly . i say that cos it would push my business out of my comfort zone .
    i think i mentioned recently about a wom i know who runs a domestic cleaning biz that has dozens of mrs mop employees. she employs a couple of middle aged folk who full time leaflet for her ,covering a big area - this forces expansion of her business which is very big already -how big i dunno as it keeps a low profile but you think about it , fulltime leafletters x 2 its gotta be pretty big

    You may as well leaflet in the day as hardly anyone is in and canvass in the evening when most people are in, i think doing either the other way around is a waste of time.

    now if only i could listen to my own excellent advice...

    I have found if you land your leaflet on the mat during the day along with all the **** the postman has put through then it's generally just thrown out. Try and get door mat prominence and in the evenings could be a good choice when the working folk have arrived home and cleared the door mat. I have a mate in a seperate cleaning business that made a habiit of doing just sundays and had good results, people more relaxed and will perhaps read the leaflet fully rather than just chucking it out.
