Leaflet Lotteries To Look Out For! No. 3

Unrealistic Delivery Times


Unrealistic delivery times


Once you have your leaflets, the next priority, of course, is to to get them out as soon as possible. 


At Drop 2 Door, we will always do our best to meet your deadlines although we will also advise on the most realistic timescale.


Unfortunately, you may also find that some distribution companies are so desperate to take your order they will promise to deliver exceptionally large quantities of leaflets within completely unrealistic timescales. 


For example, say you wanted to drop 20,000 leaflets in your local area in one day.


Leaving aside the fact that you would first need confirmation that there were indeed 20,000 addresses in your target area, it would be worthwhile considering the logistics of such an undertaking.


At an average of 800 – 1,000 leaflets per day, depending on the type of housing covered, you would need at least 20 distributors to achieve this. It's fair to say the logistics of coordinating such a large workforce on a short lead time is not straightforward.


At Drop 2 Door we have had experience of picking up the pieces after exactly this type of scenario has gone wrong. It is therefore important that you question your distribution company carefully to be sure they have the available capacity to carry out your drop both professionally and reliably.
