I am using postcards like flyers for marketing and plan on hitting places multiple times. What amount of time should there be in between trips?

How many times do you plan on repeating your flyer distribution to these addresses?

Thats the part I am trying to decide - I am thinking monthly until September. trying to pick up more mowing customers but also trying to set up fall services (aerating & seeding) I have hit about 6500 houses twice & another 2000 once.
just wondering at what point does it go from being helpful to being annoying?

We have seen quite a few discussions on this topic here and what I think the general consensus is, is that it takes 6 or 7 impressions before a consumer will start to remember your business. So if you hit their homes once a month for the season, I don't think that would be over doing it.

Does that help?

Matt, throughout the season, how often will you visit the same locations to try and get the homeowner to sign up with you?
