Where in the community can I hang fliers?

I just started a new job at a pizza place and my boss wants me to hang fliers for a kids event we are having. Where in the community can you hang fliers at? Like what places will let you do it?

  • Almost anywhere will let you, so long as you get approval first.

    Try some of these places:
    Local Pizza Parlors
    Local Hospital (more in their outpatient services - like the lab or cafeteria. Most have a special bulletin board for flyers)
    Local Elementary Schools

    Just ask for the administrator and explain to them the event, and say that you would love to hang your flier in their facility.

  • Grocery stores usually have an ad area near the registers or the exit. Also community colleges have bulletin boards you can advertise on with permission.

  • Laundry mats, if you have a college, you can hang them on the student bulletin boards, grocery stores, sometimes you can hang them on telephone poles too.

  • Libraries have boards too, but you may have to run it by them. Our areas here have a channel on the basic cable, where it shows announcements for the communiity, maybe look into that. Try various chruches maybe you can hand them out after a service lets out. Put them on cars in parking lots where kids are known to hang out. Post a copy of it on your loal Craigslist. Try your local YMCA. If they have skate parks or indoor play places you could stop by and hand some out. Word will get around once a good sized group of kids hear about it. You could try going to the schools, and see if you are allowed to post in on their school bullietin board.

  • These are all great ideas. I was already thinking of most of them, what about
    flyers on car windsheilds at a parking lot
    you could ask a school if they could send them home with the students
    dr. office waiting room
    go by a local play ground or ball field and hand them out to the parents
    some apt. complex have a bullietin board by the mail area too.
