    Hi,

    I have just finished leafleting an area of approximately 10000 homes I was wandering whether anybody has ever re-leafleted an area and how long after the first drop would you recommend for the next batch to be dropped off and what sort of response was there on the second sweep. Lots of questions I know, thank-you in advance.

    :)

    Maybe give it a year or two, with people moving homes, or people changing mind, windows get dirty easly over a year, then yeah its possible to get a few more, but not many.

    I would wait a year before re-leafleting an area. But personally I would be out knocking doors, and just post the leaflets to people you don't get in. I used to get 1 or 2 customers to every 100 leaflets posted, but the way things are at the moment, even that would be optimistic. I tend to get much better results with door knocking. If I go out for an hour, I get a fairly consistent 1 or 2 customers, then some ***hts you don't get any, then other ***hts you hit a little empty pocket and get a dozen.

    Go out for an hour each ***ht for a week, just posting, then the following week knock doors for an hour 6 -7pm, and I bet you get twice as many customers with the knocking.

    If you're going to do a second leaflet drop in the same area, you need to wait at least a year. Hopefully people will have forgotten about the first drop and the second drop won't be annoying.

    You'll need to do a follow up of the leaflet drop by knocking on doors a week or so afterwards. This technique has worked well for people on here.
