I don't think the postman is going to deliver your flyers for you unless he is an idiot or wants to lose his job. If you want flyers delivered, you either do it yourself or hire someone to do it for a reasonable rate. Nobody wants to work for nothing!
Post Men are strictly prohibited from delivering ANYTHING but what is Official Mail, Pay college Students to stand in front of a competitors place of business? Thats called Loitering! Asking a Medical Facility if you can leave what will most likely become a Litter Problem for them? Probably not the best idea.
The reality is that most Businesses dont want their customers bugged by someone elses offer...especially not in their place of business...or even in front of their business.
While Flier distribution can drum up some business there is usually no easy way out and it certainly is not a replacement for a real advertising effort.
Face it, at least 95% of those fliers will end up in the trash and you can expect a .2 to 3% response rate....those are the facts!
Any Good Business Plan is going to have a budget for advertising and marketing. If it doesnt, then that New Business may end up joining a long list of other failed businesses that simply didnt have a proper start up budget.

Door hanging is the way to go
i have recorded all ROI's on varies door hanger amounts. The key is to find a company with intergrety that will deliver every door hanger with GPS tracking.
at 5000 door hangers i need a 1.75% return to break even and im averaging 3-5% response rate.
when i ordered 10,000 pc all i need a 1.25% return to break even and the average is 3-5%
Firm believer in door hanger and ROI on them. USE A REFERRED COMPANY TO HIRE!!
Post office will distribute flyers for you. You need have the print material made to exact weight and size (post card) they have businss plans that will deliver. Becareful, they want exact weight and size. should run you about .16 per pc mailed. I have experience with this and still get a larger response from my door hanging company that i use
