Your leaflet distribution campaign Start to Finish

This is how your leaflet distribution campaign with The Private Postman happens. Step by Step.

1. We either pick up or have your leaflets delivered to our storage unit on Tuesday of the distribution week.

2. Your leaflets and distribution maps go to our Private Postmen and Women on the following days.

Wednesday for deliveries taking place in North/North-West London Thursday for deliveries taking place in West and South-West London.

( Bank Holidays may alter this schedule. Please get in touch with us for more information in case your campaign should be starting in a week with a Bank Holiday.

3. Our Private Postmen start delivering on Thursday or Friday if the weather permits. Otherwise the distribution starts as soon as the weather conditions are such that your leaflets will not get damaged in the delivery process

Delivery Times

It is important to note that all your 5000 leaflets are not delivered in one day. The distribution is spread out over 4-5 separate deliveries. These take up to 7-8 days in total.

Our expertly trained Private Postmen will deliver 1,000 leaflets in one 3.5 hour delivery session.

We have 50+ Private Postmen and Women working all over London. This includes many Ex-Royal Mail Postmen. We can deliver up to 350,000 leaflets per week if required.

You will know that your distribution has started when you start receiving your Fire Text messages in your email.

Please note this system is not a proof of delivery – it is an automated client update system. It will inform you in real time exactly where and when your leaflets are being delivered. This allows you to come see your distribution being done at any time – unannounced.

Proof of delivery is supplied via our GPS Files.

All our distributors carry GPS devices which track every step they take. We send you the data from these after your distribution is finished.

You can expect to receive the GPS data around 7 – 10 days afteryour last leaflet has been delivered.

The advantages of The Private Postman delivery system

A. You will not get a sales spike on a single day. The enquiries you receive from your leaflets will be spread out thanks to the way we structure our A distribution.

B. We never deliver in the rain. This ensures that your leaflets are always delivered in pristine condition and are never damaged by the elements. B This is a unique thing in the industry

C. We run a shared delivery. This means that your leaflets are delivered together with one to two other high quality, non-competing clients. Thanks to this our workers earn up to £12 an hour which is the highest earning potential in the industry

We have found most companies that offer solo-only delivery end up paying their workers minimum or sometimes below minimum wage. This has a very real effect on the quality of deliveries.

D. Most solo-only leaflet distribution companies make only one delivery per day. They start that delivery at 8am with a team of workers. This means that most leaflets delivered by them will be covered on the doormat by all other deliveries and letters that arrive that day.

We deliberately start our distribution later in the day at around 12-1pm. Thus giving our client’s leaflets more chance to be seen by the residents of homes we deliver to.
