Targeting and numbers of leaflets required
We can offer you our expert advice on what areas will be the most beneﬁcial for you to target based on the services or products you are advertising. We are the only company in London with 30 years of Royal Mail Postman’s experience. No one knows London better than we do. We can also help you with guiding the targetting process and shaping your message to maximize the impact of your campaigns.
You will receive all of our distribution maps for your selected postcodes. Our standard maps are generally 5000 leaﬂets each with the option of being broken down to even smaller areas for speciﬁc targetting. Our maps of 5000 leaﬂet are called Group and smaller areas of 800-1000 leaﬂets within them are called walks. There are normally ﬁve walks in each Group.
The mapping system you will receive already excludes all council houses and impossible to deliver households.
