How to Hire People to Hand Out Flyers???

by 41 comments
Hey guys,

I am looking to hire people to hand out flyers in a number of different cities in America. I was wondering if there is any website that deals with this type of outsourcing?

    Might need to hire a manager to sort everything out and look over the deliverers, because if they find out your living in Ireland, a lot may just chuck them in the bin and still get paid. Thinking "how will he ever know".

    A very risky stratergy as you have no way of checking! Read a few stories of people outsourcing this to find out the flyers were never distributed! If you're going to hire a manager then you need to make sure your conversions are good otherwise youre just throwing money away!

    It depends on what you are promoting and how you measure results.

    The best way to get good results, if promoting CPA for example, is to split the revenue with who is delivering them for either a small upfront with bonuses on how many leads or just simply $0.XX per lead nothing up front.

    Getting people should be easy through classified. Set up a unique tracked domain redirect to an offer, get the minimal flyers printed and posted direct to test first.

    If they are getting a commission per lead and have their "own" link you can then encourage them to promote other ways with "their link"

    That's what I would do/ have done.

    Craigslist is good. Or local notice boards.

    I am not sure about what you mean by flyers, do you mean tear off flyers on boards ? or do you mean deliver flyers to home ?

    If you want to reach people you can go to site like vista print and create the flyers and ask them to send it to people on x, y , z zip code and they will email it to them (they will charge you for mailing these flyers or post cards).

    As far as tear off flyers, i didn't find yet the best way because I found some people on sites like fiverr claim to post and take snap shot, but it is very limited.

    I hope that helped

    My advice would be to post an ad up on Craigslist or gumtree. You might get some responses on there, it's checked a lot by people willing to do lots of things to earn money.

    Hey, I have hired some college students on Fiverr.com to distribute flyers for me in computer labs on campus. The trick is to get them to do it a few minutes before class starts...That way they are less likely to be removed. The ones I hire will also take a picture of the work they have done and send it to you. I have had great responses with this technique. You should give it a try!

    Yeah it definitely seems tricky. Having them take a picture definitely helps. That might be the only way!

    How do you plan on compensating the workers? Salary? comms? Per batch handed out?

    I have an army of workers ready at the drop of a hat. BUT.. I would need to know how you plan on compensating.

    Thanks,
    Candace

    I picked up 2 mexican guys standing outside a home depot hardware store and told them I would pay them $45 for 4 hours of passingout flyers. I had 6 guys surround me for the job. The older guys walked away, too much walking I suppose. You have to drive around and follow your help to make sure they are doing the right thing. I even took a bunch of fliers myself and walked through the neighborhood on the other side of the street for a time. I had 1 bad apple though, as soon as he knew I was driving to go check on the others, his stack suddenly got much smaller. Like I wouldn't notice. He obviously threw some in the trash. I never used him again. The two guys who were working hard and delivered everything were offered more work and a little more money. I put their cell phone numbers in my phone because good/honest help is hard to find.

    If you have a gathering place in Ireland where Day laborers hang out, go and choose younger individuals because they are going to be walking a lot. But, be present or you have no idea if your fyers will get delivered unless you offer incentives, and even at that, they may think you are BSing them and they might dump half of them anyways.

    What if you built and hosted subdomain sites for each of your flyer hand out people, and they got paid an affiliate commission for every sale driven through their subdomain?

    That way they get paid when you get paid and they have an incentive to pass out the flyers?

    You could place ads for free I believe on Craigslist and on Backpage for these types of "Gigs."

    Just a thought, but controlling whether or not they hand them out by giving them a Commission pay schedule seems like a better deal than paying directly for flyers in a community where you can't put eyeballs on the prize!

    The thanks for for making me think outside the box.

    I've done this in the past (although not across such a great distance).

    If you're in doubt of your employees trustworthiness, I'd advise hiring a second one to snoop on them and make sure they're actually doing it.

    Sometimes just the warning of the check ups is enough to make sure the job is done properly.
