Door Hangers idea

3 Replies

I am planning on making a door hanger and using them in one school district, in the areas where I am looking to buy.

The contents:

Basics: Clear bag, magnetic (or regular) biz card, handwritten note or mini card, flyer printed on matte cardstock.

Other possibilities: A card (with small magnet attached) that shows community calendar and my info, small coupon book from local businesses that may want to participate (this could help pay for this campaign also).

I plan to follow this up in a month or two with a sticky note on each door that says, "Hi- We buy houses in as-is condition in (this area). If you are selling, or know someone who may be, please call me anytime, or check out (my website)! -Julie (xxx)xxx-xxxx"

I am hiring my teenage daughter and her friends to help me distribute.

I could also follow up again with free pencils given to kids through the schools, just an idea.

What are your thoughts on this? I will definetly update to let you know what I change and how it goes! Thanks everyone!!


You might need to simplify your verbiage, he "AS IS" component may not register with everyday homeowners. Just my 2c. Good luck!!!

I've done the door-door flyer thing and didn't have any luck. I'd like to rethink my advertising piece and give it another go. I like your magnetic card idea as magnets are likely to be kept around and look at pretty frequently.

I've done tons of door hanger campaigns but I have gotten only two calls - one that was window shopping and already had a Realtor he was working with and another that yelled at me to not put door hangers at his property as he had renters living there. Lots of money down the drain! :-(
