    Would any business owners be interested in very competitively priced leaflet distribution in Stone?

    Over the next few months I will be slowly covering the majority of homes in Stone with my own leaflets, so thought it would make sense to offer this service for anyone else interested.

    DELIVER ONLY
    The going rate seems to be around £60.00 per 1000 leaflets for shared distribution, but I will gladly offer this service for just £25.00 per 1000. That's a great low price of just 2.5p per leaflet!

    PRINT & DELIVER
    Option 1 - Basic inkjet printed full colour on plain white A4 at a cost of £100 per 1000, INCLUDING delivery in Stone (minimum delivery rate of 500 per week).
    Option 2 - Shared advert sheet. 50% of an A4 along with another advertiser for £75 per 1000 delivered. Design required to be in landscape orientation.
    Option 3 - Shared advert sheet. 25% of an A4 along with 3 other advertisers for £50 per 1000 delivered. Design required to be in portrait orientation.

    I would include delivery progress reports via email also.

    If anyone is interested, please contact me at the soonest possibility either by telephone (07871 613924) or you can email me at mail@wmrcomputers.co.uk

    (For obvious reasons, nothing computer related please - but pretty much anything else shouldn't be a problem)

    Kind Regards
    Wayne

    Note to Admin:- If you think this belongs better to a different section, please feel free to move it. Ta muchly ;)

    @MerkMark - No problem at all mate. Just ring me whenever suits you best. Thanks

    @John Marwood - My price is for leaflet distribution and does not include printing costs. Nor do I offer a printing included option. I print my own leaflets for my business, and am offering this service for anyone who wishes me to deliver their own (already printed) material at the same time as my own. (Just thought I should clarify this incase anyone reading the offer has interpreted it incorrectly). Thanks

    Sure, understood the service you were offering

    Just wondered who did quality print runs locally given so many printers are going to the wall...

    Ah, I see. I did get some quotes locally but they were far too expensive for my liking. I can print 200 myself on £2.00 worth of cheap ink and £1.50 worth of paper - so I decided that was the way to go for me. Ends up around 1/10th of the cost of professionally produced flyers ;)

    Been having a think (with printing costs being so expensive), so if anyone was already interested in this offer but has yet to organise printing, I will offer that service too.

    Option 1 - Basic inkjet printed full colour on plain white A4 at a cost of £100 per 1000, INCLUDING delivery in Stone (minimum delivery rate of 500 per week).
    Option 2 - Shared advert sheet. 50% of an A4 along with another advertiser for £75 per 1000 delivered. Design required to be in landscape orientation.
    Option 3 - Shared advert sheet. 25% of an A4 along with 3 other advertisers for £50 per 1000 delivered. Design required to be in portrait orientation.

    I would include delivery progress reports via email also.
    Thanks

    Would any local business wish to have 5000 leaflets printed and delievered in the Stone area?

    I am soon going to be advertising my services again throughout most of Stone, and for the cost of just £100 your own design can be on one side of the A5 leaflets which I get professionally printed and then deliver myself.

    The leaflets will have a bright yellow band across the bottom of each side saying "See overleaf for details of..." to help ensure that people realise the leaflet is printed on both sides.

    This equates to just 2p per door fully inclusive. If you are interested please PM me at the soonest possibility.

    Thanks
    Wayne

    PS - For obvious reasons, no computer related businesses ;)

    Just to emphasize what great value this is, I've just spoken to a local-ish firm who regularly do leaftlet distribution in Stone. They charge £30 + VAT per 1000, and that doesn't include printing (you have to arrange and pay for that yourself)

    Also, for an extra £30 I will provide you with your own A5 leaflet rather than sharing sides!

    I'm kinda tempted by this, as a rule I don't spend on advertising as I keep busy enough without it. But at the price your offering it's very tempting. How soon would you need the info for printing?

    Hi Rikki.

    I would be looking at finalizing my orders for printing by the end of this month. Delivery would mostly take place throughout August and September at a minimum delivery rate of 1000 per week.

    Ideally it would need to be your own artwork that you provide, but if you need assistance with this I would do my best to help. Just bear in mind if doing it yourself that it needs to be in the correct proportions for A5 use and 300DPI resolution. Publisher / PDF or any common format is acceptable.

    There has been another person in touch, but I'm quite happy to produce seperate flyers if there's more than one taker. As you said, it's an extremely good price. I would charge more if it wasn't for my own business too, but as i'll be delivering my own it seems daft not to do it for others.

    I'll take you up on this if the offer still stands. I can do all the artwork myself, just wanted to make sure I had time to get something drawn up.

    No problem at all mate - the more the merrier! Also I guarantee that I won't take on leaflets for similar businesses - so you'd be the only plumbing / gas related one.

    Cheers again

    I presume the leaflet design should be in portrait orientation to tie in with the turn over banding.

    The value is in targeting

    Specified marketing

    As opposed to the Judian English League of Darkee Haters,( or.whatever the people concerned.are called who just.mail dropped.my gaff) with imigration rhetoric and the like

    [ sorry, went off on a Claret rant ]
