Where do I find partners to distribute flyers on commission basis?

14 replies
Hey guys,

The title is my question. I'm searching for people in the US and Canada who can distribute flyers at high traffic places and make money on commission basis. I don't know where I can start to find these people, they should be trustworthy.

Thank you in advance,
William

    Would you deliver flyers on a commission only basis?

    Pay someone to do it....and it doesn't mean a lot. Not sure where you are located but my sister works with "high functioning" Autistic Adults. Many of the people she works with have and need jobs just like what you are mentioning. She works with many who stuff newspapers into plastic bags, roll silverware in napkins, do computer data entry, etc. Thing is - they are fantastic at these tasks that many people find "below them". Use Google and find an organization near you. Some will do so on a volunteer basis in order to give them something to do.

    Another option might be kids summer cash for neighborhood kids...not sure.

    HTH,

    Thank you for the answers. I'm currently not staying in the US, so it might be a problem to find such an organisation and speak with them from eye to eye.

    I know that flyer distributors are not normally paid on commission: But it's better for me because if they do not work, they don't make any money. If they work hard, it pays off.

    Besides: I have all flyer templates so all they have to do is print them and hang them up in their city.

    Best regards,
    William

      That all sounds good but put the shoe on
      the other foot. What assurance do they have
      that they'll be paid by someone in another country
      after they've gone to the time and trouble of printing
      and distributing the flyers?

      I think you'll have a tough time finding someone to
      do this for you. Hanging flyers is a minimum wage type
      of job. People willing to settle for minimum wage are
      not usually entrepreneurial types.

      well, I doubt you are going to find anyone who'll deliver flyers on commission. Sorry. And they have to print their own flyers too?
      Hmmm...Good luck with that!

    Hey WilliamL, shoot me a PM with some more detailed info, like commission rates, product type, etc. I tried PMing you after finding this thread on a google search, but the forum won't let me until I post 50 times. We're currently building a flyer distribution team in Nashville, Tennessee.

    William You're asking people to print flyers and chew up gasoline without knowing for sure if they'll get paid. I wish you luck.

      You are facing several problems:
      1. Flyers are one of the most ineffective methods of generating sales, with only a couple of exceptions (i.e., if you are a local service business, and the flyers are door hangers in specific target neighborhoods)
      2. Because of the ineffectiveness, someone working on a commission basis would get very little if any money - would you work for free?
      3. You are, as you said, not in this country.

      Your best bet, if you are determined to use flyers, would be to contact an organization (as someone else suggested) and pay a fee to have them distributed.

    Try the Las Vegas strip. There are hundreds of "workers" handing out flyers that promise Girls To Your Room! They get a nice commission bonus for any "sales calls" made.

    Only in Vegas baby.

    P.S. You could probably find these workers on Craigslist or in front of Home Depot and they only deal in cash.

    There are a good number of people on Fiverr who offer this service, only they don't work off commissions. You pay them $5-10 and they will print and distribute flyers in high traffic places like colleges, parks, etc. May be worth a shot!

    There's so many variables here that you own't be able to test and have no idea whats actually working for you. How engaging is the person? What day/times are they working? What's the average # of fliers being distributed?

    The cost and headaches of this campaign would be focused better on some small paid traffic tests (think Facebook). All the metrics are there for you to see what works to be able to scale it and REALLY profit from your hard work. Just my two cents about it. =)
