I used to do this about 10 years ago but I now have a TEXT Rider which takes them directly to a vtour and Floor Plan.  I use it with all my online ads too. Qcodes were a fad that caught on in Asia but not so much here in Canada.

This is an example of what I do now to great success.  It also captures the number:

I  don't use flyers any longer.    So many people today use mobile apps to get house information.  I encourage my buyers and sellers to use my mobile app as well.  Also I have had some success with a sign riders with an 800 number to call for information.  I think most people today are going "tech" with a mobile app.

In our market, many of the sign posts have flyer boxes when the sign can be reached from the sidewalk or public area. I like to see brochures in the house.

Good morning Debbie. We have flyers available in front of every home we flip. Every once in a while we hit pay dirt.

I leave fliers for about 1 month. Too many calls from curios people who just asking what is for sale and how much it costs. They do not want anything else, just that.

No, I think this was a great idea pre-internet, now it is easier to google the address or agent from the smart phone than to get out to pick up a brochure.

In the past I used them religiously.  Many buyers felt that it was a tangible 'proof of effort'.  What I discovered was that often neighbors would empty the flyer boxes for various reasons.

I think there are better ways to get info to buyers now.
