Re: USPS Every Door.


I've just put together a sweet deal with a pizzeria and a liquor store to share an 8.5x11 card with me and we're doing 5k each month for 3 months on a test run.

I'm arranging all the printing/mailing/design and I'm charging them 10 cents each, so I'm only paying roughly 3 cents per card ($150) to get out to 5k people.

Also... someone above mentioned the minimum EDDM size needs to be 6.5x9 but you can actually do 6.5x7 or 6.5x8.

Yep, a lot of them end up in the trash. But it still works.

Sorry for the late response, but the answer is Yes

Very little response but very worth it. I did several runs and landed a few small jobs and one very large job. From the very large job I got several jobs from their neighbors. Now the work is just bleeding out of that neighborhood. Without that flyer I don't think that I'd have gotten any of this work.

That being said, it wasn't uncommon to run the flyer to 1000 houses and not get a single call, or just one call..

Also worth noting, my flyers sucked. I really need much better ones, at the time I was just trying to get anything to stick. I am preparing to run a much better flyer and narrow the scope of work that it will cover.

Re: USPS Every Door.


I just got 5,000 postcards delivered. This is my biggest run yet. The postcards look great, I think it will do well. Crossing my fingers. They aren't going out for another week or so (timing is important). I will update in about a month and let you know how it goes.

I don't want the cards going out Labor Day weekend. A lot of people go on vacation and don't have time to sort through all the mail when they get back.

Re: USPS Every Door.


I have used this for a remodeling company in Atlanta. They got a great return on the investment. I think the advantage of USPS now is the fact that you don't have to purchase an address list.
