    This is a great way to get a huge amount of offline clients with free advertising.

    Lets Get Right To It:

    All you have to do is monitor buildings. Usually in the early mornings a stack of delivery newspapers are going to be placed in the front of buildings/apartments.

    This is a great opportunity to grab the stack of newspapers, walk away, turn the corner, sort the newspapers one by one, throw away all the advertisements, brochures, whatever and start stuffing it with your ads. Your flyers, your business cards.

    Return and leave the newspaper stack building by building.

    The only ads that get distributed in your area via newspapers circulate.

    Stay by the phone and expect phone calls!

    Don't Forget To Hit Thanks!

    Not the very time efficient methode :(
    I prefer just talk to the local newspaper deliverer and ask him how much it would cost you to add your flyer to the newspapers.

    Maby ask him to just deliver the newspapers and put your flyer on top?
    Give him like 5 bucks per 50 deliveries? :p..

    just my 2 cents.

    Have you tried it? I have 7 people that do this for me. I get a numerous real estate agents every week looking for SEO just from this. It works great if you know to target buildings.

    Sounds like a lot a of risk to distribute a few flyers, people could see you and think you are stealing them +you gotta get up early in the morning lol. I think windshields are still the best place if you want to use flyers.

    This is thinking out of the box but could also get you thrown in the box. Taking newspapers in the fashion in which you described is considered to be theft. Most large buildings have security personnel and security cameras monitored by security.

    This is too risky and could get you in big trouble if caught, even if your intention is to return the papers.

    I just love that idea, sounds crazy enough to work! If you know what you are doing it might work.. I'd love to try it out but I just can't get myself up enough early in the mornings, haha! And I also don't want to get caught doing that, too dangerous for me ;)

    I think this is a solid idea. You can use a "Free Ipad2 For test" flyer, or something similar,a lot of people read the local newspaper,specially they local one, thanks for sharing your idea Kz3ro =D

    Welcome to Black Hat World........................
    Home Page:
    I think the idea is dumb....

    too much work... too much risk.... for too little return..

    let's play with the numbers...

    so you get up early and stuff ONE building..
    because you can only do one building per day...
    you do that to 30 newspapers....
    so using the 1% rule... you need to stuff 3 building for you
    to get one person interested....

    so you are running an email submit offer..
    and you get one person to sign up....
    so you made $1.50.....

    do you see a problem here???


    and this is assuming you do not get busted and come out
    on the news being called the "newspaper" napper...
    and be the village idiot for a day.....

    like i said... too much work... too much risk... too little return...

    Instead of doing it yourself, you can pay that newspaper delivery guy to handover your flyers or whatever...

    I do agree this is better than tacking flyers across the city....

    why not just replace the stack of newspapers with your own printed paper, replica of the paper you're replacing with reports of your business. You could just dress like it's something you're supposed to be doing. If you're selling something $500+ per client, how much would it really cost you in the long run.
