Can you really make money from leaflet distribution? and if so, how much can you expect to earn? and why should you even consider leaflet distribution in the first place? After all there are so many other business opportunities out there.
Let me try and answer those questions.
Firstly I feel that many people possess the idea, mistakenly, that leaflet distribution couldn't possibly make any money, it just looks to simple and uncomplicated. They also consider its probably hard work, (everyone is looking for easy money) so they just disregard it as a business idea.
Due to this viewpoint, leaflet distribution is not only overlooked as a business opportunity, it's also immensely underrated. The leaflet distribution industry is a thriving, and very profitable one. The fact that so many people fail to see leaflet distribution as a good money making idea, makes it an outstanding one.
Let's remove this hard work viewpoint regarding leaflet distribution. The truth is that all new businesses are hard work, in some shape or form. They nearly always demand complete hands on in the initial stages, most also require financial outlay, sometimes a significant one; this usually means taking out a loan, or using savings.
When you take out a loan, or use savings to launch a new business, it causes worry and stress, not to mention the fact that most new businesses never make a profit in the early stages, sometimes for several years.
Even worse, many of these new businesses never make a profit, ever! and end up closing down. Many times this leaves there owners emotionally scarred; and, financially worse off with less than happy memories of business life, which is unfortunate.
This makes the simple, and uncomplicated leaflet distribution business, now appear like a good money making opportunity, after all with little or no capital investment required, surely leaflet distribution must now be one of the best new business ideas around.
Yes the leaflets do have to be delivered, but that's the small price you're paying for not having to make a large financial investment, and, being comfortable in the knowledge that you'll be making a profit from day one. This all adds up to no worry, and no emotional stress, which makes a happy business owner.
There's another plus point to setting up in the leaflet distribution business, well two really, firstly it's a rock solid business idea, it will still be going strong when many other business concepts are either no longer the latest thing, or have been transcended by changes in technology… and secondly because it's a very large established industry, it has real potential for expansion.
The pay back with leaflet distribution comes when you start to employ leaflet delivery people; and if you're ambitious this can happen very quickly. You are then able to relinquish the day to day delivery duties to your employees, leaving you free to concentrate on marketing the business. Life then becomes a whole lot easier, and from then on, you truly start reaping the rewards of your initial work.
Now turning to the question of how much can you expect to earn from leaflet distribution; well, this is all relative to the pricing of leaflet delivery in your locality. I can however estimate the following…
If you start out on a part time basis, you can earn about Â£150 per week, delivering one leaflet. Still working part time and now delivering two leaflets together, expect Â£250 to Â£300 per week.
Moving to full time you can now earn Â£300 per week, delivering one leaflet, rising to Â£500, to Â£600 per week, delivering two leaflets, together, delivering three leaflets together you could be earning Â£700 to Â£800 per week.
Once you bring leaflet delivery people on board, each staff member then adds to your profitability, depending on how many leaflets are being delivered at any one time.
An estimate for each leaflet delivery person employed, delivering four separate leaflets at the same time, would be, Â£60.00 + profit (can be considerably more) per thousand combined leaflets delivered, after wages have been paid.
One person delivering four separate leaflets together can expect to deliver approximately 1,000 leaflets per day on average. I'll leave you to do your own profitability calculations.
These are only estimated earnings for educational purposes, and there's no guarantee that you can, or will, earn these amounts of money. However I think you'll agree that leaflet distribution does show considerable money making potential, especially when you consider that employing twenty and upwards leaflet delivery people can happen quite quickly.
