A big reason why some succeed at distributing flyers and others don't is that some hand out enough flyers to get responses back.

If on average we see a 1 to 2% response rate from flyers, it goes to show you that if you hand out 100 flyers, you might get 1 call. If you hand out 200, you might get 2 calls.

However, if you hand out 1000, you might get 10 calls and then you are dealing with some numbers that can really help growth.

Does this help?
