How far apart were these handed out? There must have been some element that caused a difference in response.
Yes we put these on manually. Bought the magnets from a wholesaler http://www.lyt.com/servlet/StoreFront
(Magically Magnetic, we shopped around a lot and these are the best price!) It took my teenagers an hour or so to put the magnets on!
We are hanging 100 ea in 2 different neighborhoods that we have a few jobs but would like to have more in the same area. This is the first weekend here in Tennessee that we have had decent weather so we're just hanging them now! Let you know how it turns out.
We did hang about 200 last year in our neighborhood and got about a 10% return. Since our business is "Good Neighbor Lawn Care" we use the neighborhood marketing a lot. We always hang something or drop business cards on a block when we do jobs and that has helped us build the business more than anything.
The thing to remember with any direct marketing is 3-10% return is normal so don't expect too much!
Let you know how the magnets work! We're crossing our fingers!
