KFP initial distribution results?
« on: March 11, 2006, 01:19 AM NHFT »

Did you guys get any idea of how many of your papers were picked up out of how many you placed at locations?

We distributed 8 boxes and have picked up about 1 box from the first issue.  We're going to redistribute most of those from that one box house-to-house, though.  Russell's says he wants to go to neighborhoods where we haven't been door to door yet and give them the first two issues.

You should stick em to mailboxes with a 'Porcupine Partner's' magnet.

It would have to be a powerful magnet for the wind. :)

If you stick them IN the mailboxes, you're violating federal law!   >:D

I put some inside mailboxes when there is already mail there and there is no other good place.

I've always wondered why it's against the law to put something in a mail box. Who owns that mailbox and who owns the property on which the mail box is found? Certainly not the USPS!

Would it make sense to give them out in a plastic bag that can be hung on a door handle?

Just thinking ahead to times when you could give out tons of papers - Cheshire County Fair and the Pumpkin Festival come to mind. How about the farmer's markets in the right season? Libraries and/or post office counters?

I counted 56 locations where papers are being distributed - wow! We'll work on a few other places to try.

I am not listing any of the waiting rooms and such ..... mostly just the retail type locations.

Yeah I have thought about that too.
I wonder what the actual law is.. probably to thwart competition.

I wonder if that includes the slots in people's doors?

I have a box on the street.  Maybe I will have to put a sign on it that says that this is NOT federal property.

I don't know about door slots. The only mention I found was that linked page, which is about mailbox vandalism. I'm sure there's a breakdown buried somewhere, but I don't have time to look for it.

I think the sign idea is a good. I wonder if the postal carrier would say something, or even care.

We will find out soon. (unless my wife makes me take it down ;)  )

That is a good idea.
I did put papers in some slots ...... where people had a little sign or such.
I also ran into people that had a wicker basket for the mail and newspaper ..... so I just used them.

I looked at the front of our mailbox. It's embossed with something like Approved by the Postmaster General.
