Local Life Leaflet Distribution was established in 2011 to offer leaflet distribution services to local businesses. Based in Harlow, Essex we deliver to most towns and large villages within a radius of approximately 10 miles of Harlow. Our distribution area covers Bishops Stortford to the north, Waltham Cross to the south, Hatfield to the west, and Dunmow to the east. Our office team are experienced marketing, media and distribution specialists with many years’ experience they can help you plan your targeted campaign.
We only use mature adults to distribute your marketing material. The vast majority of the adults we use to distribute leaflets are retired or semi retired and use leaflet distribution as a means of exercise. As a group we can deliver up to 10,000 leaflets in any one day.
Prior to starting each new distributor is given detailed tuition on what is required of them to achieve our exacting standards.
your leaflets are NEVER distributed with free newspapers. Most of our clients agree that free newspapers detract considerably from the impact of leaflets inserted in them. Not to be confused with our free full colour A5 magazines which are kept by householders for a month in the “Man Draw” until the next edition arrives.
We take great pride in our service and we have a clear and comprehensive approach to backchecking. During the course of your distribution, a member of our team will maintain contact with you and provide you with regular updates on the progress of your distribution.
We use various methods to check the leaflets have been delivered including:
1. Knocking on doors and asking residents.
2. Leaflet spies (local friends, family, business owners, distributors, advertisers etc)
3. The number of enquires we ourselves get for job applications or sometimes from our own marketing material.
4. Direct monitoring by our leaflet supervisors
5. Talking to you the customer and asking how many enquires you have had from your leaflet campaign.
6. Other methods
