In January of 2011 I contracted with a local company to print, and mail 15000 postcards.
after the cards were mailed, I contacted friends, and family to be sure
they received the cards. only 2 did.
I cant prove the cards were not delivered.the usps cant help with mail that doesnt have a tracking #.
money spent, and wasted.I will never do it again.

That is very interesting! Could you tell if they had done this previously or if anyone else had such a problem?

Do you have any advice for others that might consider this marketing method in order to avoid this situation?

I love door hangers. I actually use a full 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of card stock because I have a lot of elderly in my area that appreciates the larger print on my adds. I put out 7500 in the last 3 months and I have 50 new customers. I also have completed about $2500 in one time work or landscaping installations. I can put out about 100 an hour. But that is a lot of walking after cutting all day.

Saving $25.60 for an hour of walking durning my down time sounds good to me

Mailing means your in with 10 other peices of mail that day and how would you get the mailing list?
I come up with my own mailing list...here's how:

Go to your county website and find the property tax records. Search for a targeted street or streets you want to service, then addresses will full names will come up with the street name(s) you looked for.

This is how I come up with my mailing list and it's easy. I can have over 1k addresses in about 5-10 minutes.
