How is the material distributed?
Our leaflets are NOT distributed with free newspapers. Most of our clients agree that free newspapers detract considerably from the impact of leaflets inserted in them. Our leaflets are carefully delivered by responsible, trained and fully monitored adults. We offer our clients Shared, Solus or SolusPlus™ distribution options. With Shared or SolusPlus distribution the leaflets will be delivered with other leaflets of a non-competitive nature.
What areas do we cover?
In addition to the areas covered from our head office base we have a growing network of independently owned and operated franchised offices. Our franchisees are required to operate their businesses in accordance with our operational systems to ensure a high standard of service and reliability. For a full up to date list of the post codes covered throughout our network AREAS page or call us on 0844 357 1154 for the information.
How do I choose what areas I want delivered?
Using household counts from the Royal Mail post code address file (PAF), we have developed our own delivery rounds based on Postcode Districts – these are the first half of a Postcode ie AL5 or SA1. The average number of households in a Postcode District is 10000. We take the Postcode districts of the areas we operate in and break them down into D2D Distribution Zones – each distribution Zone is on average 750 homes or individual letterboxes. So with DOR-2-DOR it is very easy to target your preferred households. The Distribution Zones are available in A4 map form showing each delivery round and the number of households, these maps are available to download from the DOR-2-DOR website. Each office will be able to supply socio-demographic information about each round and the likely impact of the customers product or service in that area. To choose your preferred Distribution Zones simply ask for the DOR-2-DOR Distribution Round Map covering your preferred location or click here to go to our AREAS page.
How do you backcheck your distributions?
DOR-2-DOR has developed a unique method of backchecking and quality control. Firstly our delivery force or Post People are carefully trained adult deliverers as to the correct way to place the leaflets through the letterbox and onto the doormat ensuring maximum visual impact and potential response. Each Post Person is monitored on a daily basis using the Delivery Audit Leaflet (DAL) which is posted through each letterbox with the clients material. The Delivery Audit leaflets currently advertise for Post People or an invitation to be included in a National Lottery syndicate by completing a delivery survey. The response on our DAL is always very high. In 2012 we have joined forces with Letterbox Check who supply us a technologically superior GPS monitoring service.
