I think it can be a way out to promote the business. But why not to put it somewhere in some crowded places or the areas where there are many housewives?

I tend to agree with several others here on the spam quotient of door hangers. Personally, any time someone leaves junk on our front door, I will go out of my way not to use their business. Maybe that's just because we receive them frequently and it becomes a nuisance.

The only way you'll figure it out though is to test as others have already mentioned. Because you'll be geographically targeting the door hangers, it should be pretty easy to track sales that land from that area - you'll have solid data to work with which is always good.

I'm new on here and i just started my business. I'm in the Funding Business looking to get clients. I think yard signs are good and effective.

Old thread but for anyone else in this situation, I would say the yard signs still sell to this day, and thousands are purchased weekly because they still work. People would naturally stop investing in yard signs if they didnít work. Unlike outdoor sign where the main focus is on a mass audience, door hangers typically can only impact a whole household or a small building if you are lucky. If you compare the ratio of printed piece vs impact potential, yard signs win hands down! So.. if your target is a mass audience you will not get too much exposure when you use door hangers. Also, in order to keep your advertising effective you have to print different kind of door hanger every time, printing a different door hanger can be a costly process.
