We have used this page to show some research carried out by The Direct Marketing Association of the UK.

This information should answer any questions you should have on the effectiveness of door to door. If you have any Roam specific questions like


    • How much?

    • How do I get leaflets to you?

    • Can you help with Print?

    • Can you offer some door drop marketing advice with your extensive experience of this sector?

Then give us a call as these things are always better discussed.
